This is a record of my visit to Pattaya in the fall of 2016. By the way, please note that this is a really boring article with a lot of photos.
Withdraw cash from ATM at Suvarnabhumi Airport
Arrived at Suvarnabhumi Airport. I love how international it is as always.
I bought a SIM card, a necessity for my trip, without a moment’s delay. The woman at the counter was strangely beautiful. The staff at the counter were joking around with each other, which is typical of tropical countries, so I quickly lost interest.
Withdrawing Thai Baht at a local ATM for the first time. It’s a big tourist country, and there are no bad rumors about ATMs.
There is an explanation of fees in Japanese. Other languages are English and Chinese. This time it was 200 baht. The fee was not as much as I expected.
After that, the password input screen. Let’s input the password while paying attention to the surroundings.
Choose the amount you need.
You may enter the amount you need. This time, I withdrew 20,000 baht. At the time, I had no idea that this amount was so high that I would have trouble later.
Clear accounting. You won’t be surprised when you see the bill later.
Arrival in Pattaya
Pattaya’s famous songthaew. I will do a quick examination.
Short term residences along the coast, convenient to go anywhere in Pattaya.
There is also a currency exchange nearby.
Go to Pattaya Walking Street
Walking Street, the city that never sleeps.
I took a different route today.
It’s like a big gymnasium.
Right in the middle of downtown. Diamond Beach Hotel.
Walking Street, Main Street.
フThere is a Family Mart.
This is Insomnia.
Crazy Russian Girls. Are there many crazy Russians?
Day after Pattaya
Al-Khazar, where you can enjoy transgender dancing, according to Google Maps.
Soi 6, the famous bar street.
In the daytime, it’s a plain, downtown atmosphere.
Tight security. I wondered what kind of facility this was.
Pattaya Discovery Beach Hotel, a four-star hotel. Location is great.
There are many condos for short stays in this area.
In this alley, there is a hotel condo. Beware of rabid dogs.
You will have no trouble finding a money changer in Pattaya.

How to get from Pattaya to Suvarnabhumi International Airport by bus
From this place, you can go to the terminal where the bus to Bangkok city leaves. That’s all the songthaew in the picture.
I got on the songthaew and checked my current location with the GPS on my phone. Unfortunately, it was packed at that time and I was standing at the end of the space. I couldn’t check my current location because my phone was about to fall due to the vibration. In such a case, be sure to keep an eye on the road ahead on your left, and check if there is a bus stop or something similar passing by.
The blue bus will take you there. When you see a flashy sign, you should get off. The destination was the Pattaya Bus 389 Office.
There is a restaurant across the street from the bus terminal. It’s a good place to start if you don’t know where to get off.
This will take us to Suvarnabhumi Airport.
Timetable. Buses to Suvarnabhumi leave every hour from 7am to 9pm. 120 baht one way.
There is also a place to eat on the premises.
Bus stop in full view.

How to get to Bangkok City from Pattaya
There are several ways to get from Pattaya to Bangkok city, but today I took the mini bus at Central Festival.
I’m going to get on this. It’s the same way as a shared van in the Philippines.
The staff can not speak English very well.
It is quite crowded in the car. I may find yourself dozing off after a long ride. I would like to take all possible precautions with my luggage.
How to get to Ekamai, Bangkok from Pattaya North Bus Terminal
When I arrive at the terminal, I will buy a ticket. It is 108 baht to Ekkamai.
