For one day you’ll probably go to Pattaya. Taxi will take you for 1200 baht ($ 40 US). Pattaya can be reached in a comfortable 2-hour drive along the Bang Na-Trat and Sukhumvit Highways (Highway No. & Highway No 3) via Bang Pakong, and Si Racha. One can also avoid a lot of traffic on Bang Na-Trat Highway by opting for Motor Way (new Bangkok-Chon Buri – Pattaya route).
Air-conditioned and non air-conditioned coaches regularly leave from the Eastern Bus Terminal (Ekamai) and the Mochit 2 Bus Terminal on Kamphaeng Phet Road throughout day.
Departure times and fares may be obtained by telephoning the Eastern Bus Terminal (391-9829) for air-conditioned coaches and 391 -2504 for regular coaches and the Mochit 2 Bus Terminal at 936-3509 for air-conditioned coaches.
The State Railways of Thailand offers daily train service departing Bangkok’s Hua Lamphong Station at 6.55 a.m.
The journey takes about 3.30 hours. Tel: 223-7010, 223-7020
