Bus from Phuket to Pattaya is the most budget and direct service connecting two top attractions in Thailand.
Passengers prefer bus to flight and train because of following reasons.
First, Budget flight ticket is always more expensive unless you are able to grab it during promotion. Besides that, Phuket airport is distant away from usual tourist hotspots like Patong Beach.
Second, there is no train station in both Phuket and Pattaya. Passengers who really want to take train must go to Surat Thani train station to take train to Bangkok. Upon arrival at Bangkok train station, then transfer bus to Pattaya. Hence, train is rather troublesome option.
Sawasdee All Thai is the only bus operator serving bus from Phuket to Pattaya. They provide 1 daily departure at 5pm from Phuket Bus Terminal 2 to Pattaya. This is an overnight coach arrival at Pattaya next morning. Therefore, passengers are advised to carry jacket because the air conditioning in the coach can be very cold in the night.
Their coach has 2 types of seating, namely VIP32 at the upper deck and VIP24 at the lower deck. The bus fare for VIP 32 is lower at THB792 and bus fare for VIP24 is higher at THB1056. VIP24 has more spacious seating, therefore Sawasdee All Thai is charging higher fare for it.
The trip duration from Phuket to Pattaya takes about 15-16 hours depending on traffic and climate condition. The coach has at least one stopover during the journey for passengers’ washroom break and stretching the body.
Important Note: The arrival at Pattaya is not one of Pattaya bus stations. Instead, the coach terminates at Sawasdee All Thai Pattaya office.
