Bangkok to Pattaya Destination Reviews

The overall experience is great. Clean and comfortable seats. Driver drives safely and with caution.
taxi Van 9pax, BangkokTaxi24, Sep 19, 2023
Driver was on time, really friendly and helpful. On top of that, the van was very comfortable and roomy. The driver let us bluetooth into the sound system, so we could have our soundtrack going the whole drive. Would give 10 stars if I could.

taxi SUV 4pax, BangkokTaxi24, Aug 11, 2023
Last minute booking so i am glad it went through. The downside perhaps was i am not aware of vehicle carplate number, only driver's contact. Solo travelling up pattaya and they assigned a female driver for me. Ms Monkaew called and came into the lobby to look for me. Vehicle is a red toyota leader. - more comfortable & stable than i thought. Trip took a shorter time than expected. Am glad to reach my hotels point to point without stop. All went smoothly.Thank you.

Train is a often a great choice for long-haul travel especially if you opt for a night sleeper train with berths which will allow you to sleep all your journey through. To make the most of your train journey, choose the class of your ticket wisely.

Note that there are air-conditioned and fan-only carriages; private compartments for 2 or 4; hard and soft seats.
Though the upper class you get the smoother is your journey, often second class air-conditioned or fan-only sleepers are a good money saving alternative.


Vans are a great alternative - or, in many cases - your only option - if you need to travel overland within one and the same province or neighbouring provinces or states. Vans ply the roads between Bangkok and Pattaya, too.

Things to remember: When travelling by van with huge luggage buying a separate seat for your suitcase or backpack is a good idea. Do not expect there is a roomy luggage compartment in a van - there is actually none and your fellow passengers are unlikely to appreciate your luggage stuck under their feet, alas.
