    From Bangkok
    There are 2 options to go to Pattaya from Bangkok by an air-conditioned bus. The first one is to catch a bus from Eastern Bus Terminal or “Ekkamai”, while the other option is “Mochit2”, but the visitor needs to look for Eastern Bus Terminal at Mochit 2 because it is quite large. For both options, buses depart every 30 minutes, but Ekkamai from 05.40 to 21.00 whereas Mochit 2 from 05.40 to 19.00. However, the departure time for buses can be altered any time, especially during long-holidays, so it would be better for visitors to check the time again in the case that you would like to depart early or late from standard departure time.

    Eastern Bus Terminal, tel. +66 (0)-2391-2504, +66 (0)-2391-8097
    Northern Bus Terminal, tel. +66 (0)-2936-2852-66

    *Note that in the case you are not familiar with Bangkok, to go to Ekkamai is much easier than Mochit 2 because you can get to Ekkamai Directly with BTS (Sky Train) and get off at Ekkamai Station, but to go to Mochit 2 you need to go to Chatuchak Station first and then catch a taxi or motorbyte taxi to go to mochit 2.

    There are also two options for air-conditioned buses, First and Second Class Buses, to go to Pattaya.

    Bangkok-Pattaya Bus station in Pattaya city First Class Bus - 1st class buses from Bangkok to the North Pattaya bus station are air-con, almost always have an on-board toilet, are essentially direct (ie no stops), and provide a no fuss, no frills, hassle-free service. Departures from the Eastern (Ekamai) Terminal and Northern (Moh Chit) Terminal are frequent (every 20-40 minutes, depending on the time of day; more frequent still at public holiday weekends) and usually take 2-2.5 hours; those from the Southern (Sai Tai Mai) Bus Terminal are less frequent and take a little longer

    Second Class Bus - 2nd class services (air-con, usually no on-board toilet) don't use the expressways, and make frequent (and sometimes lengthy) stops, hence it is not a recommended option as they take considerably longer than their 1st class counterparts (which at worst will only halt momentarily once or twice to let passengers jump off on the final approaches to their destination). Many 2nd class buses from Bangkok continue on to Jomtien
