Left Hotel. We took a taxi from our hotel (300 meters from Huay Kwang MRT) to Eastern Bus Station (near Ekkamai E7 BTS) and paid around Baht 90-100.
At the Eastern Bus Station, proceed to the nearest counter where you can see the sign “Pattaya”. Bus ticket costs 113B. The lady will then give you your ticket with your seat number. Buses going to Pattaya will normally park at Terminal 1. First bus leaves at 05:40.
