How to get from Pattaya to Bangkok by bus
April 21, 2023
Table of contents
Public transport is very developed in Thailand, especially in tourist places. You can get from Pattaya to Bangkok on buses from almost a dozen companies!
Buses differ in bus stations and bus stops from which they depart. The buses also differ in destinations in Bangkok.
The type of bus may also vary:
- big buses
- vans (microbuses)
It is also necessary to take into account the bus schedule. There are many buses, and they go to Bangkok frequently, so the schedule is usually characterized by the start and end times of the buses, as well as the frequency. For example: every hour from 7 AM to 10 PM.
In addition to the final destinations, buses of some bus companies may have different routes: drive through the expressway directly to Bangkok, or drive along the regular road, visiting the neighboring cities of Laem Chabang and Si Racha.
Tickets can be bought at the bus station ticket office just before the bus departs. Usually, when buying tickets for vans and minibuses in Pattaya, they do not ask for a passport, but it is highly recommended to have it with you. Firstly, the rules for traveling on buses have become tougher in recent years and your passport can still be checked. Secondly, when boarding a bus in Bangkok, they will most likely check your passport or ask you to enter your details (even if you are returning back to Pattaya).
Please note, if you are going to the airport or bus station in Bangkok for a connecting route, it is highly recommended to purchase tickets in advance. Tickets are usually available, and you can leave on the nearest bus. But there are exceptions, for example, it is not uncommon when tickets to Suvarnabhumi Airport are sold out for several upcoming buses.
You can also buy tickets online. But please note that tickets are sold online for not all available carriers.

As a general rule, no animals are allowed on buses.
It is forbidden to drink alcoholic beverages on the buses.
Eating on buses is usually not allowed. If you eat something, then don't stain the seats and don't leave trash behind!
Usually, buses stop not only at their final destinations, but also at other places at the request of passengers. If you want to get off before reaching your destination, then warn the driver in advance before the trip.
In vans (micro buses) there is no place for luggage. That is, it is not provided even by the design of the van. Therefore, if you have large luggage, then you need to negotiate its transportation separately. Usually you can do this: buy additional passenger seats and carry luggage on it.
Larger minibuses and large buses may have luggage space. Check the baggage rules and excess baggage fees for your bus before purchasing tickets.
