Get to Ekkamai Eastern Bus Termanal or Mor Chit Northern Bus Termanal in Bangkok. There are 2 types of bus to Pattaya. One goes direct to Pattaya (Express) and the other goes into the rural town areas. The former is more expensive (only less than 50 bht more) but saves you about 1 hour and the latter cheaper but takes longer. The bus arrives at Pattaya Station on North Pattaya road.From here there are many Songthaew taxi that will take you to where you want to go.The fare to Beach Road is 20 baht for locals but they will charge visitor 40 baht or up to 150 baht. So, please do not get ripped off.
