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.

Great video. I see on the counter: Next bus to Pattaya hotel, 250 THB. Do you know if this is a door to door service that you don't need to pre book?
