I have used MR T twice and had no problems.

1st pick up was from Pattaya airport to metro appartments nice bird driving a new Honda Civic 700bht inc tip. A motorbike did hit us but was not her fault just a scratch on the bumper.

2nd pick up from metro appartments to the BKK 90 mins door to door new Toyota Corolla 1000bht inc tip.

Will use again on my next trip

Just found this on a website for one of the condo agents. Don't know how accurate it is, but might be handy...


Easy transportation from Pattaya-Bkk-PattayaThere is "Suvarnabhumi bus" from Suvarnabhumi Airport-Pattaya & Pattaya-Suvarnabhumi Airport. The bus directly ends at Chaiyapruk Road, Jomtien Beach and this road is very close to "Jomtien Beach Condominium". So it is very convenient. Cost of bus ticket is 119 baht. Apart of Suvarnabhumi bus (yellow bus), there is also "Rung Ruang bus" from Airport-Pattaya & Pattaya-Airport. This kind of bus ends at bus terminal, Pattaya Nua.The timetable of Suvarnabhumi buses areAirport - Jomtien : 6.45am, 9.15am, 1.15pm & 5.15pm Jomtien-Airport : 9am, 1pm, 4pm & 7.30pmRemark - The timetable of bus is changeable. For further information, please contact the bus office. Bkk office 66(0)21344099 or Jomtien office

Only if you want to pay well over the odds. I've never understood why people feel the need to book in advance unless there's a pile of them and they need a minibus as there are plenty of taxis waiting at the airport night and day. If people prefer to pre-book thats up to them but there are plenty of options a damn side more competitively priced than those soi 14 ripoff merchants.

If you're considering the penthouse option make sure you're mainlining scotch from the moment your plane takes off, that way you may actually have beer goggles on thick enough that the 2 'kittens' accompanying you might look half decent.

Alternative to the scotch would be 2 paper bags.

or if you are economising one paper bag

A warning of a section of the Bell Bus Service. Last year a friend of mine was staying at The Nana Hotel BKK and I met up with him ready for our playtime in Pattaya. It was our intention to catch the normal bus to Pattaya and when I arrived at the Hotel he had booked us on a mini bus service at the hotels booking station out the front of the hotel.

Mini bus arrives and off we go, to what seemed to be every hotel in BKK to pick up other passengers. When the mini bus was finally full and I mean full the driver speed down the motorway finally reaching the Bell Bus Depot. Crazy drive and if we had have had an accident we were all goners.

Into a Bell bus and off to Pattaya, no, next stop the Airport to pick up the arrivals. Then off to Pattaya yes at last.

So the trip was more expensive than the normal bus service, far less comfortable at least the first part of the journey, took about an hour longer and the only plus was when we arrived at Pattaya there were mini buses there to take us to our hotel.

From BKK go by the normal bus service, don’t be fooled into any mini bus services as you could be in for a long and uncomfortable tiki tour.

I used Limo Pattaya...1200 b all up, brand new toyota, good driver, waiting where he said he'd be.
FWIW, only 3 people in the queue at immi., bags arrived within 10 mins, golf bag was already there before the suitcase came down the carousel.

Theres a new bus service operating...Roong Reang or summat, I'll check the name...124 baht, pick up / drop off is at the Fair Properties office on Threppaya...very comfortable bus, heaps of leg room, service is every two hours, last bus is 9 or 10 pm. Perfect if you're staying at Jomtien or Pratumnak.
