The best and safest way to get to Pattaya via Bus from KKC.

There is no NCA route listed from KKC-Pattaya, only KKC-BKK.  I have never taken Chan Tour, but I hear it is very good. From the website JustinTime posted, it looks like they go all the way to Pattaya.  With the CT route, do you have to change in BKK or someplace?

Rex its a simple bus change at their terminal.  If you use someone else, beware of the cockroaches and broken seats......

Chan Tour is direct KKC to Pattaya, but there are a lot stops.

Thy actually have Nong Khai-Rayong on the sides of the buses but they go to Pattaya before heading off to Rayong

When I used to travel to BKK more frequently, I like to take the "red eye" at 11:30 pm, pop a xanax, and wake up just as we were pulling into Bangers around 5:30 am.  No problem getting a taxi at the station, and no traffic to the hotel.  Other than that, the best bus to take is the airplane!

Why not try the overnight train service?  I enjoyed my 2nd class sleeper cabin last time i did it.  Something new anyways, the carriage was new, bed comfortable, clean sheets, free water, electrical outlets.  Eh, a suggestion.

9 hours on a train or 50 minutes on a plane.
A tough choice.

The flight might only be less than an hour, but add in the time you have to be at the airport early, the time walking to the terminal after landing, the time in the taxi queue, the time on the road and although still not as much as on the train I find the train less stressful.  And the trains are new now and get you right into the city at Hualamphong station and I can walk from there to the hotel I use near the Central Post Office.
