By First Class Air-Conditioned Bus

Bangkok-Banphe Rayong Bus

First class air-conditioned bus is what most visitors take to Rayong.  This is because visitor can take a bus from Bangkok and a major city at either the north or northeast of Thailand. The first-class buses from Bangkok, at the east terminal named Ekamai, are available more than the other places, every about 40 minutes, from early morning 4 AM till 10 PM.  However, there are also second class air-conditioned buses available here, which are not recommended to visitors because it will take a lot more time.

Note that, at the present, mini buses or vans have become more popular for a vehicle to transport. In some case, even though visitors buy a ticket at the official counter, they will need to take it if there are not many passengers at the departing time. The ticket officer will inform you beforehand. Additionally, Mochit 2 is also another place to take a first class bus. 

* 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. Ekkamai also has public buses to Ban Phe.
