When you want a little get away from the party destination: Bangkok and want to experience serenity, Pattaya is the closest destination to hit the beach. The coastal city has been a major attraction for tourists for its vast stretch of beaches, exquisite bars and some fingerlicking thai food. Pattaya to Bangkok is well connected to highway 7 Motorway and Highway 3 Bangna-Chonburi route. So finding a bus or driving around is not an issue. However if you wish to arrive in style, you can choose to fly from Suvarnabhumi International Airport.
