Option 2: Ekkamai Bus Station

Ekkamai bus station is Bangkok’s only major bus station within easy walking distance from a BTS (sky train) station. Ekkamai bus station is located on the Sukhumvit Road near to the Ekkamai BTS station. These services cost slightly less than the bus from Morchit, and you also save money riding on the BTS sky train rather than going in taxi to get to Morchit bus station. For this reason these tickets book out fast and booking in advance is therefore advisable.

Option 3: DK Minivan

This service also departs from the Northern Bus Terminal. The arrival point is on the Central Pattaya Road which may be more convenient than arriving at Pattaya Bus Station depending on your final destination. The Central Pattaya Road is a lot closer to the most popular areas of Pattaya, such as Walking Street, than Pattaya Bus Station.

From Pattaya Bus Station

The final destination of the Pattaya Bus Company Service is the Pattaya Bus Station. This bus station is about 3 km north east of Pattaya Town. Take a taxi or songthaew (converted pick up truck) from the bus station to your resort in Pattaya. It is much too far to walk to the areas where most of the hotels and guest houses are located.
