Bangkok to Pattaya by Bus (Detailed Guide) December 10, 2018December 10, 2018gant_admin Going from Bangkok city centre to Pattaya is very easy; in this detailed guide I have taken pictures of everything and what you should expect. This guide is written on Dec 2018. The exact location of the bus stop in Bangkok is https://goo.gl/maps/ptrX6u3YLYy So to get there, the easiest way is to take the Sky Train which is the above ground train system that goes around the centre of the city. The Sky train is called BTS. (1) Take the sky train to Ekkamai Station or Ekkamai BTS Station. The Bangkok Bus Terminal is South West of the BTS station. Ekkamai BTS Station Overpass (2) Walk about 1 minute to the Bangkok Bus Terminal which looks like the below:- Bangkok Bus Station to Pattaya (3) Walk across Overpass and the Bus Station is next to the Bangkok Mediplex Bangkok Mediplex (4) You should pass this:- Ekkamai overpass to bus station (5) Walk down these stairs Ekkamai Station Stairs (6) Once down these stairs you want to turn 180 Degrees around and you should see the Bus Station Bangkok Bus Station (7) Inside the bus station Inside Bangkok Bus Station (8) Ticket counter for Pattaya is at the back of the station ticket counter to Pattaya (9) The tickets to Pattaya costed 120Baht (~US$4.50) in 2018 and looks like this:- Bus Ticket to Pattaya (10) The Bangkok to Pattaya Bus looks like this:- Bangkok to Pattaya Bus (11) Inside the Bangkok to Pattaya Bus looks like this:- Inside the Bus (bangkok to pattaya) Points to note; I went in the afternoon and traffic was not good it took about 2.5 hours to get to Pattaya. Early morning or late in the evening are generally better. The bus does not take you into the centre of Pattaya City unfortunately and the guys will charge you 60Baht per head to go directly to a hotel in the city centre if the location you want to go to is further from the centre then they may charge 100Baht. I paid 100Baht for them to take me directly to the hotel. For those who don’t know Pattaya – the taxis run a cartel and they do not use the meter so you have to haggle with them on pricing whereever you go; rarely will go anywhere for less than 100Baht; it’s a real scam the taxis in Pattaya. In addition Uber doesn’t work I think and the equivalent of Uber is called Grab.
