    How to get to Pattaya from BKK? How long does it take? How much does it cost?

    Takes 1:30 but it depends on the traffic in BK. Be sure to avoid the morning and the end of afternoon. Try to go around 12/1pm to avoid the legendary BK congestion. Taxis is the better option, unless you are on budget it will cost you around 1500 baht of a good taxi. over 6 years ago

    Decent accommodation needed in Pattaya for married couple for 3 months, whilst doing dive training, any ideas?

    Check the View Talay 6 condos, many condos for rent, about 48 square meter, with kitchen. Just right to the Hilton! Pool, and close to everything. Cost is around 25,000 per month, which is way lower than an hotel, plus you have more space and a kitchen. over 6 years ago

    Please Sugges. I am going to Thailand, there I stay in Pattaya, from there to Ko Chang, then I am planning to go to Cambodia to see historic

    How much time you stay? It sounds like you want to do too many things, it will be a hell to follow you schedule. Thailand is not London or NY! - from BKK to Pattaya 1:30 min average, try to go in Taxi as the other options are not comfortable or a lot slower. Even Thais are reluctant to take the bus because it stops many time, and you have to go to the bus station.. in taxi. There are so many hotels in Pattaya, it is hard to give one name. I like one it is Baboona hotel, right on beach road, but it is booked all the time. Taxi should cost 1500 baht, hotel from 600 to 2000+ depends on your budget. There are many place where you can rent day by day, no need to plan, Pattaya is never full. - Pattaya to Koh Chang will take you about 3h to the pier with a minivan, then you will wait 30 min to 1 hour depends if the ferry is ready to go, or if you missed it. Then you will spend about 30 min on the small roads to get to your hotel. Minivan will cost you around 500 baht (more -> it is because you are a farang!). Then the ferry is about 100 baht and the taxi to the hotel on the island is about 200 baht. There are a lot of place in Koh Chang and all depends on your style. If you are hi-so, you will like better White Sand Beach or an expensive hotel like Mercure, Nirvana, Chai Chet Hotel (excellent), Flora Italia : price around 2000 baht etc... if you are middle budget you can find for 1200-1800 baht some very nice bungalow on the beach or room right no the beach on Lonely Beach for example. I like Siam Beach resort which have rooms, bungalows or villa, and free breakfast included. If you are backpacker style, Lonely beach have some weird places like Siam Huts or better push to Bang Bao at Cliff View resort where you will pay about 500-600 baht / night with no fridge, no tv, internet slow or not working, ants and monkeys on the rooftop! For Laos, be careful, it is not really safe. I would go to Ubon and pass the frontier there, but it is something like 16 hours from Koh Chang! Cambodia is more civilized and from Koh Chang you will find a lot of choice of trip all included, I suggest you to take your ticket directly there. Cambodia's border is about 1h drive. over 6 years ago
