A video where I took the cheap bus from Bangkok to Pattaya.
Parts of this video include:
0:12 Lunch at Coffee Club
1:56 Getting snacks from 7-Eleven beforehand
2:46 Buying the ticket
3:31 Short wait for my bus
5:11 Departing Bangkok
6:37 The raised highway that most of the journey is on
8:34 Approaching Pattaya
10:18 Pattaya Bus Station
13:24 Mototaxi from the Bus Station to Soi 13/4 (x2 speed)
I always take this cheap bus when I visit Pattaya from central Bangkok. It’s fast, efficient and so cheap it’s almost free. I’ve used the service over 30 times in the last few years and highly recommend it to anyone travelling on a budget.
Taxis – Sometimes if I’m visiting Pattaya with friends then it’s more practical to take a taxi than the cheap bus. I don’t like to prebook Bangkok taxis as you don’t know the condition of the car you will be riding in. If you get an old dud then it can be an uncomfortable hour and a half journey. Much better to flag a taxi down at a busy point in Bangkok, making sure it’s a newer model of car from the last few years. They usually cost 1000 -1500 baht from central Bangkok.
Vans – You can also go to Pattaya by van from the same Bangkok station in this video. But I never take the vans in Thailand as they often have crazy drivers at the wheel who tailgate and are complete lunatics behind the wheel.
Note: If you are visiting Pattaya from Suvarnabhumi airport then you can get an airport bus direct to Pattaya as documented in this video:
First I had some lunch at the Coffee Club, Ekkamai, then took the cheap bus (108 baht) from central Bangkok to Pattaya. On arriving I took an 80 baht mototaxi from Pattaya bus station to Pattaya Soi 13/4, where I was staying at the Penthouse Hotel close to Walking Street.
NB: The cheap bus is what I nearly always use to get to Pattaya from Bangkok. It used to be called the ‘sex tourist express’ because it was predominantly older white men who were the customers, nowadays a multitude of demographics take it.
The Bangkok bus station is easy to get to, as it’s right by Ekkamai Skytrain station.
The buses leave every 20 or 30 mins depending on how busy they are and the journey takes 2-3 hours depending on the traffic. They run from 5am-11pm every day.
The cost was 108 baht per person at the time the video was made (the price varies due to competition).
An older video I made of the same journey showing the bus station, ticket buying process etc…
