Late arrival in BKK - how late is too late?

So my flight will be arriving at Bangkok late on the 4th of June:

AR BANGKOK SUVARNABH 2305

 

Given the late hour, is it a good idea to spend the night in Bangkok and then go to Pattaya?

 

Or should I book a room in Pattaya even though I will be arriving very late (taking a taxi I guess)?

 

Thanks.

1 - get a seat in the front of the plane

2 - travel light (only cabin luggage)

3 - as you get out, rush to the customs before everybody

4 - go out to meet your pre-booked taxi. don't forget to tell him that you will get out quickly.

 

I usualy arrive between 10'45pm and 11'15 and it's not to late. I never go to Bkk

It now takes just a bit more than one hour to get to Pattaya.you'll be at a bar before 1'am

 

Edit : If you're traveling with Qantas or BA, you can get a Premium economy. Not too expensive, lot more comfortable, can have 2 hand luggage end you're right in the front ready to get out !

Emirates from Sydney on Dec 30/12/10, arrived 2.10am. Had carry on bags, and luckily upgraded to biz class so I was out of the airport by 2.30am and hurtling down the toll-way of love at 130km/hour. Slept like coma in taxi, checked in my hotel and was in the clubs.

 

Good sleep during the day then good to go for NYE in Pattaya....

I always pre-book my room in Pattaya, but you don't have to. However, as you are arriving late at night it might be worth pre-booking a room for one night at least, as you don't want to waste too much time looking for a room when you get there. As soon as you see some of the nightlife you will be desperate to get out amongst it!

Mate my flight always arrives at that time in BKK. Always get to pattaya around 1am (only 1 hour 20 minute drive that time of night). enough time to check in shower and be in the action at 1:30.

 

Don't sweat it!

Went to Pattaya 26 times in 3 years, and now back in Farangland married to a girl I met on my second trip I miss the mateship that I developed in my time in Pattaya, and a lot of Addicts boys are a part of that. Not a big forum user these days but like to look in now and then

Wow. Thanks for the responses.

Sounds like that is not an uncommon arrival time.

 

It seems like planning/booking a hotel and taxi are on the priority list now.

 

See you in Pattaya in a couple of days. :)

 

Cheers!

I've also used easy_limo@hotmail.com always reliable also but 1200, nice cars. but i haven't heard a bad word about the Mr T service either.. just book something.

Some pretty good advice from other BM's

 

Book your room, hop in a taxi, I used Mr T last time and was in Patts just over an hour after getting in the car. When you arrive you'll have plenty of time to hit WS or other areas.

I'm going to have to disagree with all y'all. I'd go to Bangkok & hit SC. You'll be knee deep in pussy an hour earlier. You may be 'meat' from the flight and not capable of an 'all-nighter'. Tons of porta-bars open on Suk full of FLs & open late late. Take the bus from Ekkamai to PTY the next day and save yourself 1000B. wj

So heres what I ended up doing:

 

Went to the Agoda website and booked a hotel (Nautical Inn).

 

When I arrived at BKK I took the suggestion found in another thread and went upstairs to the departure level and out to the taxi stand.

I spotted a cab with a Farang getting out of it and spoke to the driver. He first wanted 1500 for the trip but quickly agreed to 1200 and off I went.

(thanks again to the forums)

 

It did end up being a bit late to get into the action as I really just wandered around, not being very familiar with which things are hopping at that time of night.

Soi 7 + 8 were stil pretty good. :)

Having a great time now.

 

Cheers,

G

    • 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)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
