Getting into pattaya is very easy comparing to other island of Bangkok, it only take 2.5 hrs max to rich into pattaya from Suvarnabhumi International Airport, after finishing airport immigration,
you can easily go to down stair for bus or taxi, i would say bus is more cheap then taxi, and other option, the bus from Airport to pattaya will cost 120 bath per person, Bus is AC and big Leg space, bus stuff are very helpfull and informative.
be care full for catch the bus bcz, the bus leave every 20 minute for the counter and there i no Indication for get into the exact bus, a stuff will carry you to the bus from the counter, so if you go for smoking or something please keep your eye on the counter, if the stuff missed you to take you to the bus thn you have to search the bus, and that too confusing bcz there is lots of bus waiting for other direction.
After the bus journey, you have to decide where you have to go, for me i was going to Pattaya Central, so i get down on pattaya central, then you have to chose ur ride for the hotel, it could be a TUK TUK or in a motor bike. the tuk tuk will cost less but go they are very confusing to manage.
i preferred a motor bike to the hotel. they will cost 100 bath to 150 bath for pattaya central. do some negotiation first, then booked it. they are very fast so have ur safety first.
me and my wife fixed a motor bike with two language, for pattaya central for only 120 bath, and the driver is good and fast, he take us to exact location with out any problem.
Booking a Hotel In Pattaya.
i was planning my trip from many month, always looking for good Deal, Discounted Air ticket, Hotels, i got much lower rate in booking Hotels in Pattaya, and i have tell you the MAX HOTEL, The hotel was so clean and worth of money, So simple with every facility you need, mostly the location, Food and Price. the hotel is near by of everything, Walking street, Shopping, Beach. we stayed in there for 3 days and my wife loved it. the hotel have there own small garden with flowers, stuff is very helpful, what ever they dont understand English, but its worth of your money. trust me, in this location you cant find best deal then this.
this is the review of the max hotel in pattaya which i found very good deal to me and my wife, you can also search for lots of cheaper hotels in pattaya central, there is lots of hotels offering 500 bath per night in there banner infront of there hotels, Or Visit Booking.com for best deals over hotels, i personally find Booking.com cheaper then other Site.
Getting into Pattaya Like a Boss
after getting into my hotel and fresh up, we take a walk to near shopping malls and Walking street. we take our most of the meal at MAX HOTEL and MacDonald, there is lots of option for eating, you have to walk and explore slowly. most of the time me and my wife was walking to streets and seeing everything around us so we can be more explore the city, mostly the pattaya central is the place where all tourist gather all night, Bars, Restaurants open all night, you can chat with the bar lady play some pool with them, they are very friendly and always looking for opportunity to take you to the room and give a massage, haha ya thats true, pattaya is full of massage, there is lots of option for massage. you have to just tell them what you like to do.
remember i was saying me and my wife was walking on all streets so we can more explore the city, now i am telling you why you need to do that, we are walking by a street and saw a fish massage for 100 Bath/15min 130 Bath/30min, we are so excited to do that, so we make it happen for 200bath/15min 2 person, after that we started walking deep in to walking street, and suddenly we saw fish massage center for 50 Bath /20min. so now you understand why you need to walk and explore, pattaya city is full of joy and endless entertainment, but every where you will se the price drop and price up. some bars sell 50 bath all bears, some of them will cost 80 bath all bear. but the environment is same, so why pay more ?
