Some info. about Bangkok & Pattaya

The distance between Bangkok and Pattaya is 147 km although not very far but for the tourists arriving at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi airport, the choices are quite limited as there is no railway between Bangkok and Pattaya so we think it would be a good idea to give you the informations about how to get from Bangkok to Pattaya before we go any further.

How to travel from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi airport to Pattaya

bangkok to pattaya van transfer

=> Taxi service from Bangkok suvarnabhumi airport to pattaya

This is the most convenient and it is what we recommend. For the price that we offer of only around 2,700 THB it is not much more expensive than using a public transport, you can travel up to 8 people with luggages and there is no need to drag the luggages to public bus stop (which would ruin your holiday after a long flight) and our driver will send you safely to your hotel in Pattaya in just 1.30 hr

bangkok to pattaya taxi transfer

=> Public taxi (the one with a fare meter)

99% of the time, they will not run a meter and they will negotiate the price with you and the total price will be higher than 2700 THB that we offer. You might find some online taxi company offfer an unrealisticly low price, some as low as 1000 THB ($35) to go from Bangkok to Pattaya. You have to rethink whether it is doable 147 km + motorway fee of 140 THB + gasoline for the total of $35 and also the driver has to return to Bangkok so the distance is doubled !! Basically it is just a tourist trap. The driver will bring you to shopping instead of transfer to your destination. Although this behavior ruins Thailand’s tourism image but it is the way it is.

bangkok to pattaya shuttlebus transfer

=> Bangkok to Pattaya shuttle bus from airport

The bus fare from Bangkok to Pattaya is 131 THB. A very good price before you consider that you have to go to the bus station, it might cost 250 THB and once you arrive at Pattaya bus station, how will you go to your hotel? The taxi there will charge you a minimum of 1500 THB. You might save some money if you select this means of transport but I do not think it is worth to drag your luggages after a long flight and waste a lot of time (overall time around 5 hours to get from Bangkok to Pattaya) for a small amount of money.

bangkok to pattaya by plane

=> Flight from Suvarnabhumi airport to Pattaya U-Tapao airport

Pattaya airport (U-Tapao) is 43 km from Pattaya city and there are not many flights offered and quite expensive. Also the public transport from the airport to Pattaya city is not very convenient for travelers. We do not recommend this option.
