Walking Street is a more expensive part of Pattaya. Lots of stuff cheaper away from WS.

I used Bells Travel yesterday for the first time yesterday, pick up from hotel and taken to airport in under 2 hours for 250B. Mr T taxi I believe at 1000B is still one of the cheaper, reliable taxi companies going from airport to Pattaya or return

Bus from Bangkok to Chiang Mai costs about the same for a 10 hour ride! From the main gate to North Pattaya Road is less than 10 minutes.

Questions about transportation from Laem Chabang have come up many times over the years. I don't think anyone ever comes back and explains what they actually did for transportation from that seaport. When newbies visit Thailand they don't know if paying a 1000 baht or 100 baht is a fair price. So they pay it. For the distance involved (on the street) as a guess, a fair price for a tourist would be 100 baht or less with public transportation. For comparison, taxi from Suvarnabhumi Airport for a 40 minute ride to a hotel in Bangkok comes to around 350 baht. (Including tolls and surcharge.)

When your ship shows up things will sort themselves out one way or another. When the ship pulls in I would expect that some transportation services will be available because it is lucrative! Your cruise service should have information. Do a forum search for other tourists asking similar questions on this forum and send them a private email and ask them what they encountered. See what Cruise Critic Forum or similar cruise related forum has for this port. The cost for a taxi or van ride can be shared.

I ran across a Thai who operates an internet shop in Pattaya who works at Laem Chabang. He said some of the employees (for a small fee) bring tourists from the ship to the main street for 50/100 baht or so. But many Thais will figure you are very rich and if you pay too much - you can afford it! (Going price on the street for a motorcycle taxi ride is around 20-40 baht.)

If you sign on to a morning tour they pick you up at the ship. Just don't go back to the port and get off in the city. Getting from the city to Laem Chabang is easier than getting away from the port. Malibu Travel has been around Pattaya for a long time.

This is one of the most rip off places you can imagine. Mafia and greed that it is all about. Taximeters are never being used just to rip off tourists. A 3 min ride is 200 baht,a bus back to bangkok ,2 hs is only 125. The whole city is a polluted scam place.....disgusting

If you had been to Pattaya you know that most of the local transportation is by baht bus. Baht bus rides are 10 baht for most of Pattaya City. (Just like it says in the hundreds of posts and when you actually read the FAQ's.) Of course when the fare is so CHEAP you should have coins to pay the driver too!

Actual sit down taxis in Pattaya are not that common. Usually parked in front of expensive malls or maybe near expensive hotels. Even if you stupidly use a taxi around Pattaya your final cost is cheaper than the same distance in most European and American cities. I have never used a taxi to get around Pattaya ever in 14 years.

If you actually were in Pattaya you never took the time to understand how to use city transportation. Hint: Like a using a meter taxi in Bangkok - you wave a MOVING vehicle over and ignore parked taxis or baht buses. For a baht bus just wave the truck over and just hop on. Push bell to stop the truck. Pay driver 10 baht and walk away! When you tell the driver where to go you do pay a custom ride. For most places in Pattaya you can get there with one or two baht bus rides. You change baht buses to change direction. If you choose an expensive hotel way out in the boonies of course you might pay more for your ride.

Prior planning prevents piss poor performance!

Single post and it is a rant about things primarily caused by the poster himself. There are some scams concerning water craft. Well known scam for a dozen years. Never felt the need to test it out.

Good luck.

They have a fixed price from the airport, it's 1.500 baht. If you book a taxi from Mr. T or PT Taxi, the price is 1.000 baht.
