Bus timetables from Bangkok to Pattaya

The Bangkok Pattaya Bus

If you want to take the bus from Bangkok to Pattaya then you will need to head to Bangkok’s Eastern Bus Station at Ekamai. Ekamai Bus Station serves destinations to the east of Bangkok and include Pattaya, Chonburi, Trad, Rayong (and Ban Pae for Koh Samet)  etc. The Bangkok Ekamai to Pattaya route is very well served with buses departing every 30 minutes starting at 05:00am and the last bus departing at 23:00. The Ekamai Bus Station is situated on the main Sukhumvit road (see map below) with the Ekamai BTS sky train station right out front! Definitely consider arriving by BTS sky train as generally traffic is very slow moving down the Sukhumvit road and could save plenty of time on a journey there. The buses arrive in Pattaya at the main North Pattaya Bus terminal (see map below). Buses are air conditioned 40 seaters

    When do the buses go Pattaya to Bangkok! Whats the time table?

    1. Travel Hub

      Buses leave Pattaya every 30-40 minutes throughout the day. Buses will start around 5:00am and finish around 11:00pm. For Ekkamai you will need to take the bus from the main Pattaya bus station in north Pattaya. You can find a map here:
