Bangkok Airport to Pattaya by Bus Walkthrough – 130 baht – 2015

A step-by-step walkthrough of how to go from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport to Pattaya using the cheap no. 389 bus. Travel time is approximately 2 hours. Buses leave hourly from 07,00 to 22,00. This works out much cheaper than a private taxi and is almost as fast and probably more comfortable.

04 April 2015
Price: 130 baht

Note: On this day of travel there was some bad highway traffic which affected the journey time. The price is variable due to competition with other forms of transport. The last 2 daily departures stop only near Pattaya North Bus Station.

In the video the price of the motorbike taxi ride to Walking Street was 50 baht for the 2km journey from the last stop.

Baht Buses are 10 to 20 baht for ones running in your direction. Otherwise, the waiting baht buses can be negotiated at a price, buddy up with fellow travellers to cut the cost if possible.

Overall verdict: The bus taken was very comfortable with good air conditioning. The sign at the counter was 17,00 for the next bus but I was put on the 16,00 probably because I had no bags. The bus does drop Thai people off early which can eat into the journey time, but hey what do you expect from a cheap bus. As for the Pattaya drop off points be sure which one you need and get ready early, the staff will help you get your bag out of the main compartment.

4:22 pause here to check the Pattaya drop off points clearly on the map.

Is it worth it to take bus from belltravelservice?
belltravelservice cost 240 baht and need to do advance booking and only travel at 2 hours interval, but it stop you at your hotel.
how is the bell bus compare to bus 389?

Shan Anoop says:

thank you so much for the Upload. This is a great upload for me since i am gonna be in pattaya debating to take the bus or taxi. Price difference is a lot but i like to try the bus. I will be staying in a hotel south of pattaya. So when you get off the bus just walk into a taxi and show them the address for the hotel right. can i bargain..

mydatch says:

Can I just ask what is the safest way to get a ride from Southern road to walking street ?
I saw alot of Taxi scam with sky high prices, is taking a Taxi Motorbike safer ? Thanks

Flaming Ice says:

Its not dropping passengers early. They want to drop here because they have business there or its their home.

stinking polecat says:

I get the whole saving money thing but to be honest this is the most time that I can comfortably negotiate on how much I get scammed, I seriously would rather pay 25 pounds to get dropped off outside the door of my digs than ass around with buses taking hours to get anywhere and taking even longer to do so! it might seem a significant saving to some but if your on your holibobs for a few weeks then you wont miss the extra comfort im sure!

Mark Evans says:

The Stop at Theprassit rd do they stop on Sukumvit rd or turn down Theprassit and drop of at the outlet mall?

Mister Diablo says:
