I have used the train once to get from Pattaya to Bangkok. It took about 4.5 hours to get there and if I remember correctly it cost 34 baht.

 

The train had vendors jumping on and off selling all types off food and drink. The closer you got to Bangkok the train started filling up with school children going home. We were catching the overnight train from Bangkok to Udon Thani so this is why we caught the train from Pattaya to meet it. I enjoy train travel so I try to catch the train in every country I visit.

 

There is only 1 train a day each way between Bangkok to Pattaya and it leaves at 14:21 to go to Bangkok.

 

Here is a link to the State Railways of Thailand:

good thing is you get out at Asoke/new petchburi rd etc and easily connect to mrt.

 

it is a good alternative for busy days like after the new year holiday, pattaya festival, or when construction is bad on sukumvit. I personally like the idea of snatching away from the pattaya bus monopoly and their bad service.

 

Sometimes it makes also sense to catch a Sattahip - Ekkamai bus, depending on where you are in Pattaya. In earlier times it was was possible to get a Sattahip bus at Ekkamai and go to Pattaya paying to same fare as on the Pattaya bus. This has changed. It is still a good alternative if the Pattaya buses are full and you want to avoid the wait. If you go to the Jomtien area, Sattahip bus is certainly a good alternative.

The train is a good alternative, and for those who don't know where the station is it is across Sukhumvit one click up Soi Siam Country Club. Train leaves around 2.30 pm and all you need is 36 baht for a one way ticket, a cool box filled with adequate booze and just take in the scenery as you stop at every chicken shit village en route. You get to BKK early evening, catch the MRT from Asoke to your hotel of choice, quich S,S and Shave and your at your favourite night time leisure venue by 8.00 pm

 

If you have not tried it give it a go if there is a group of you it can be quite good fun.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)
