How to get to Pattaya from the Airport

Getting to Pattaya from the airport takes from one and one half hour to two hours. The road is mostly motorway and highway and not much to see along the way. The following are just a few modes of transportation. Your bargaining skills will determine the final price.

Taxi / Limo       1,900฿ to 2,500฿
  typical airport limo in Thailand

Many limousine services at the airport offer transportation to pattaya. These aren’t the stretch limos but rather semi luxury sedans. Cost of transfer to pattaya this way is about 1,900฿ to 2,500฿. This is the easiest, most convenient and most comfortable way to go. You don’t have to look very hard to find these services, more likely they will find you.


Standard / Taxi       1,000฿  to 1,600฿

Step out the front door of the arrivals hall and flag down any passing taxi. Fare should be around 1400฿ including road tolls.

Tip; With your camera or phone take a picture of the taxi number or license plate number. This is just incase you leave something behind this way you can find your taxi again if you need to. After a long flight it is easy to be forgetful and leave something behind.
