They are telling you anything that will sell. The cheapest and - possibly - fastest way is doing itself yourself and dont part with your money and freedom at the travel agency. The trick is to get up early. These people have those expensive thru-tickets which block the Trat-BKK bus in the afternoon. I was once looking at an empty bus in Trat and was told it is totally booked.
It turned out it was once those vans arrived. So: Take Koh kong to pattaya van from the border to Trat I recall ? Unlikely you get a direct bus and all the world will try to sell you a van seat. If you like vans, you're all set. Otherwise as above. I found the buses cheaper than vans which seem to charge a premium for the direct service.
The bus version has the advantage that you can eat what and where you want. Sorry for being vague on the money side of the story but the 22 USD is a joke. Actually the van from the border to trat is baht. I am not sure if there are direct buses from Trat to Rayong.
There are vans and buses to Chathaburi both the same price 60 baht and from Chanthaburi regular mini Koh kong to pattaya to Rayong. Anyone buying these cross border tickets will pay through the nose surprised forum does not know this and I have seen more than one person left stranded at the border and having to pay again. There may be mini van at border to Pataya but likely to be expensive and there may be infrequent buses from either Trat or Chanthaburi but do not know as no interest in going to Pataya.
Trat has a direct van to Pattaya for sure. I was offered that ride. As for the Chantaburi - Rayong ride - i did it once and I did not like the speeding at all. Trat-Rayong very few buses. Better take the first option to Chantaburi. Thanks mike and bigal1, I knew you guys would be the experts on this. I've only done this route the other way. You're right taking the cross border bus would've been mistake. It worked out well: Koh Kong - border : tuk tuk 5 dollars, motorbike 3 dollars, about 10 minutes Border crossing: Cambodians didn't mind me walking out of the country Thais sent me back Koh kong to pattaya get stamped out of Cambodia first.
On Thai side Koh kong to pattaya are minivans to Pattaya for baht. I got a big bus to Pattaya for baht departing at also had one at before. The bus was great, large seats, blanket, very smooth ride. Arrived in Chantaburi after an hour, Rayong after about 3. Dropped off in Pattaya on the side of Sukhumvit, tried walking in to town, got attacked by a pack of stray dogs, ended up taking a taxi.
Total cost Cambodian Border to Pattaya: 10 usd. Travel time: 5. Thanks for the info. You were luckier than I was. The bus you got Koh kong to pattaya full when I came through. Koh Kong fees: Yup, that place is a first class ripoff. I cant stand it and avoid it religiously. In the 'good old days' I paid 40 baht from the border to town and that included Koh kong to pattaya bridge fee. Did you pay that bridge fee or the driver?
Where did they drop you off on Sukumvit? At least on Pattaya Tai and Pattaya Klang you have songtaews running towards beach road - possibly not that late a nite at Klang while Tai should have the service until late. Yes the Koh Kong fees are really too high, I even had a hard time getting the tuk tuk to take me for 5 dollars to the border. He acted like I was a cheap for insisting on 5 dollars, and yes he made me pay the bridge fee. I have no idea where they dropped me off on Sukhumvit, I just walked from there and got totally lost before finding a cab.
Forum, good for you that you made your stand. Did you have a lot of luggage? In the past, I took a motorbike, not tuktuk, between the border and town. There might be some savings and traffic is not really bad and the road is good. So I figure not too dangerous. For next time, tell them Theprasit Road for Jomtien, if that is your destination. Pattaya Tai southpattaya road for the core area or Klang central road. Nua north Road as I said has not a well-functioning songtaew line. I should add that there is a songtaew line operating on Sukumvit between Naklua north of Pattay nua and Sattahip.
Thus, if dropped anywhere between Sattahip and Naklua you can take this service to the intersections mentioned and save on taxi fees. Again thanks for the update. Thanks a lot mike, that's very useful for next time. Yes I know about the motorbike but had a big suitcase so it wasn't an option.
