Arriving at Suvarnabhumi airport and looking for the most convenient way to travel to Jomtien? Whilst a taxi might be your best option, the prices will start at THB.1,500 upwards. However, there is a very convenient and in-expensive Express Bus directly to Jomtien. The Roon Reuang Coach Company offer a regular express bus from Suvarnabhumi Airport leaving every hour from 07:00 to 22:00 every day with additional departures at peak times.
The Bus Counter is located on Level 1 in the airport between gates 7-8. There is a counter for Hua Hin and a counter for Pattaya/Jomtien. The ticket costs just THB.130. When you buy your ticket, you will be informed which departure you will be on, just wait buy the counter and about 10 minutes before departure you will be called to the bus. One ‘normal’ piece of luggage is included (you will be charged a small amount for larger/heavier luggage) and look on your ticket for your seat number.
The journey is almost entirely on the Motorway and generally the busses are reasonably comfortable with generous leg room. There are 4 stops so try to establish with your accommodation which is most convenient for you. Stop 1; is North Pattaya Road, Stop 2; is Central Pattaya Road and Stop 3; Big C/South Pattaya Road. The final stop is at the Thapphraya Bus Station in Jomtien. Taxis and motor bike taxis are readily available at each of the stops to take you to your final destination.
Please note that the later departures (21:00 and 22:00) departures from Suvarnabhumi only stop at North Pattaya but taxis are still available. More details at https://airportpattayabus.com/
