Hi,

 

I need a quick answer for this. How much should I ask the fare in a taxi from Bangkok airport to pattaya? I'm thinking 1200? Is this too low? Or about right?

1200 to 1500 from Airport ok if getting on arrivals level 4

 

Make sure at 1500 Tolls included and ask if tgey are at 1200

 

Also ask if using Highway was not all and will use slower road and no Tolls needed

Mr T is the way to go. I usually contact him at least a week in advance. 1000bht from BKK to Pattaya, 900bht on the return.

From Bkk (Asoke, thonglor, ekkamai), pay between 1000 and 1200.

Mr T is a better option because they know Pattaya.  BKK taxis will do the run but can get lost in Pattaya or do dumb shit things like turning in at Pattaya North Road when you are staying in Phratamnak/South Pattaya.  Not fund spending an hour stuck in downtown Pattaya traffic jam on Beach Road.

1 K - 1100 including toll money  is OK for me.

Book Mr T

I have used this service for 10 years now and never had a problem.

I think the going rate with him is 1000 baht including tolls.

Yeah if you grab a taxi on the street, it will be quite fast to find one for around 1K but you need to go exactly where you stay (have a map or make him call the hotel) cause most of bkk taxi don t know pattaya's hotels.

This......last year I got my TGF to come down from BKK in a taxi....she called me when they hit the lights on the main drag (not sure of the road name) which I know is about 10 to 15 minutes from Sabai Lodge, Soi 2. She arrived over an hour later.

Mr Ts drivers know Pattaya

THE MAIN THING IS TO KEEP THE MAIN THING THE MAIN THING

Areca Lodge have a mention in there hotel book Mr T is not allowed to enter the hotel grounds due to the taxi firm not being of a good enough standard whatever that means ,, how ever the bell boy Is allowed to carry guests baggage to the road outside the hotel to the Mr T taxi .

From Sukhumvit, I hail a cab and ask if they want to take me to Pattaya for 1100 baht including tolls. Some say yes, some say no, some ask for more. If they counter with 1200, I'll usually say OK. I might save a 100 or 200 by pre-booking, but if I'm not arriving at the airport or catching a flight, I prefer the flexibility of just hailing a cab when I'm ready to roll. Sometimes I think about taking the bus, but in the taxi to Ekamai, the driver usually makes an offer to take me all the way to Pattaya for 1100-1200 and I say OK.

Don't mean to hijack the thread.

 

But why do people don't take the bus for 10x less? is it too long or cramped? I know it is only 20$ but why?

To some people it's not a lot of money for the convenience. From the USA could spend 45k-60k baht round trip. After a long flight it's not a big deal to spend 1k baht more just for some comfort, avoiding other tourists, and control of where you go and stop.

for many it's also the time factor. Depending on your arrival (and bus seats available, although this is a minor factor as usually there are) you might have to wait up to an hour for the next bus to go. Most folks just want to get to Patts asap hence taking the pricier option for not having to wait again after a long haul flight.

Sometimes the next bus to Pattaya is booked and you have to wait another hour. Also, the bus stops several times along the way to drop off passengers, further extending the travel time. Finally, you have to pay to get from the bus depot to where you're going, so that increases the cost of the bus option. For me, the bus up is fine, the bus back to Pattaya isn't worth the savings.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
