Pattaya Getting Around
Getting Around Pattaya - TravelPuppy.com
Travelling around Pattaya is most convenient by minibuses (songthaews) that continually run the Beach Road and Pattaya 2 Road in counterclockwise circuits. There are minibuses running to Naklua and Jomtien areas. Fares are from 10-30 baht depending on the distance and are paid when getting off.

Those who wish to be independent and explore Pattaya's countryside and beaches at leisure, there are vehicle rental places offering various types of motorcycles, jeeps and cars.

Motorcycle rental is between B150 and B700 per day, relying on size of the bike. Always wear a crash helmet.

A jeep rental from a beachfront vendor is about B1,000 per day. Make sure if you have enough gasoline in the tank to get to the nearest gas station, and see whether the brakes work. These beachfront hire vendors will ask you to deposit your passport with them.

Bicycles are also available to be hired from beachfront vendors at B100 per day, or about B20 per hour.

For those who prefer reputable vehicles with full insurance cover, there are a great choice of car rental companies in Pattaya. Avis is located at the Dusit Resort, in North Pattaya. Budget Car and Truck Rental, and VIA Rent-a Car are other leading names. With international standard services, these companies also provide special deals, tour ideas, maps and other attractions to make your stay easier. For those who do not want to drive, the Image 5 Star Taxi Company provides one way return trips around Pattaya or hour by hour hire. They will pick you up at your condo or hotel with their door to door service.
