Option 3: Taxi to Pattaya
Take a taxi direct to Pattaya. Go to the taxi desk outside the airport and then negotiate with the taxi drivers. The cost should be between 1,300 and 2,300 Thai Baht and remember to establish whether the price includes toll road charges. Last time I did the trip we paid 1,500 Baht including toll road charges (with my Thai wife doing the negotiating). The trip should take no more than 2 hours. Unless, like us, your taxi breaks down, which turned our 2 hour journey into a 4 hour one. You can also book a taxi online in advance from Don Mueang Airport to Pattaya using the Search Box above.
We waited an hour for a replacement taxi
