Another question I need answered please peoples :-)
Have just booked my parents flights to Thailand to come out and see me when my partner and I are over there....
They are flying from London to Bangkok and then we are staying near Pattaya......hopefully not as bad as they say ;-)
Just wondered about getting the train from Bangkok to Pattaya station. Ive read that there is only one train a day is this correct? Have checked out Seat 61 as well and cant find anything on there about this journey.
Do you need to take the train?
There is a bus every half hour or more from Ekkamai bus station (the Eastern bus station). There are also buses from the Southern and Northern bus stations in BKK. There is a bus direct from the airport too, it goes about every two hours.
Hi, I am Thai people and live near Pattaya. Follow your attention that you want to take train to Pattaya.
I will tell that you cannot do this.
Because there not are train for public transportation to go pattaya but only there are train for transportation goods.
Good way, you should take a bus at Ekkamai bus station follow to suggest of "Rat on the Road" but let me I suggest add that you should to take bus only frist class NOT take secound class because services are very different Goodluck and Welcome to Thailand.
Thank you for all the suggestions, I have booked us a taxi to pick us up from the hotel in Bangkok and take us straight there.
We are staying near Jomtien Beach, so hopefully wont be too near the 'hustle and bustle' but close enough if we want to go into town!
Hello Phil 😊
I dont know yet if anyone has mentioned it, but there is a bus that goes directly from the international airport to Pattaya. As far as I have heard it goes regularly. There is even a website about it, which I dont know the URL to. Maybe somebody else can provide it.
Thank you for the info but I think we are going to stick to the taxi, it isnt too expensive and I think my parents would prefer it (they never been to Thailand before so gives them some time to adjust on their own!) rather than waiting around for buses/trains.

One thing to consider for new people taking a taxi. Pre booking is the way to go and ensure that you use a reptuble company. You would hate to have an accident in the cab and be stranded as the driver argues with the other party on who was in the wrong or worst still that you end up in hospital because they drive like 140km per hour in beat up cars.
