Is there a system with Songthaew(baht bus)


Recommended Posts

In my first visits to Pattaya I always rented a motorbike but after seen some accidents and as I like to drink a lot and dont want to kill others on the road I changed to use the baht bus.

Did anybody found out a system e.g. the numbers to which directions and places they are heading as I remember my visit to Kon Kaen a couple of years ago they even had a network map of the baht bus.

There is a system... I have never worked it out but it depends whether the bus has a painted white band around it or not. Of course there are always excpetions to the rule.


Generally if the bus is heading in the direction you want to go jump on, if he makes a turn in the wrong direction accept that you have to hop off and catch another.


Pay 10 baht through the window and never ask where he is going and you can't go far wrong.

As Serp mentioned there is a bit of a system that I have found that the Thais know.

I prefer to get on and if it goes down the street I want I will just get off at the right spot.

If they miss my street then I ring the bell jump off, pay my 10 baht and start walking up my street.

If it's a long way to walk and another Baht Bus heads up my street I will jump on that one.

Thailand is one big adventure at times. :)

The white band I think goes does the larger loop, one of the girls I barfine who lives behind Soi 15 aways waits for one of them when I see her out of the hotel onto beach road
