How far is it to Pattaya from Bangkok? What is the most convienent and cost-effective way to get to Pattaya from Bangkok? How long does it take? Thanks
Air- con buses (with toilet on board) leave Ekkamai bus station every 30 minutes to Pattaya - cost 117 baht, or 3 of your dollars. Takes 2-2 and half hours. no more cost effective way that this! Ekkamai is on the skytrain system, and so quite easy to get to if you are near a skytrain station, or a connection from the tube (oops, subway!).Be careful though -at the station entrance, head for the first booth on the right as you enter, as there are touts trying to put you on other buses that take half a day and stop at every hamlet along the way!
Forgot - the distance is 147 kilometers (90 miles).
You have also a station on Morchit on the way to the Bangkok airport. If you have time it have also train from bangkok to Pattaya about 40 bahts and 3 hours and half.
