Where are we in Pattaya

The Sunshine Vista is perfectly located in the heart of Pattaya, only 100 meters from the large Central Festival Center shopping mall and Terminal 21 Thematic Mall, and just a minute’s walk to famous Pattaya Beach. Our hotel near Pattaya Walking Street is 50km from U-Tapao Airport.

Travelling To Pattaya

From Suvarnabhumi Airport

The Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok is about 120 km away from Pattaya and a drive of an hour and a half approximately. There are taxis available from Suvarnabhumi to Pattaya and are fairly reasonably priced. An international airport serving the popular holiday destination of Bangkok, Suvarnabhumi is well-connected with most international and domestic airlines operating in and out of the airport.

From Don Muang

Taking a Bangkok airport taxi is by far the most convenient and comfortable way to travel. The total journey time will be around 120 minutes and will cost approximately 1,500 Baht depending on the taximeter. A much cheaper option is to take the bus. You will first need to take the A1 bus from Don Mueang airport to the Mo Chit Bus Station in Bangkok and then switch to the Pattaya bus to reach Pattaya city center. The total journey time is around 180 minutes and the cost will be 149 Baht one-way.

From U-Tapao Airport

Just 40 minutes drive from Pattaya, Utapao airport is the closest domestic and international airport to Pattaya. You can travel by mini van for around 250 baht in both directions, and taxis cost between 800 and 1000 baht.

Getting Around Pattaya


The standard fee for anywhere for the normal route Beach Road – Second Road is 20 baht for foreigners. If you want to go somewhere else please negotiate the price before you enter the vehicle.


Proper taxis with air-con are available for trips anywhere, not just to the airport. These taxis are “officially” metered but every trip is subject to bargaining. Most of the drivers speak a bit of English and are great sources of information. Otherwise, our hotel is happy to arrange transport to any destination, please speak with our Travel Counter for details


Motorbike-taxis are a way of life in Pattaya. If you want to get to somewhere quickly or conveniently, particularly at busy times, these are your best option. On every corner in Pattaya, you’ll find a gathering of motos. They are there 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. As always in Thailand, remember to negotiate the price before heading off.


Another practical way to get around Pattaya is by hiring a motorbike. You can hire one for around 150 baht a day, or less for longer periods. These scooter-type bikes (e.g. Honda Click) are extremely reliable and easy to ride having no clutch when changing gears. Thanks to congestion, local traffic doesn’t move very fast so they are actually ideal vehicles for experienced riders to get around on. Please check the insurance when renting the motorbike and be extremely careful when riding the bike. Make sure that everyone sitting on the motorbike is wearing a helmet and you have the international motorbike driving license with you as the police like to do spot-checks.

Cars can be hired too and international car rental companies like Budget, Avis, Hertz and Sixt have an office here in Pattaya. Driving them in and around the city is likely to be frustrating during peak times and anywhere on Sukhumvit Road. In general, four wheels are only really useful if it’s raining or you intend to explore the area. There are many hire firms around the city with prices starting at around 500 baht a day for older cars, to a more realistic 1,200 baht for more modern or four wheel drive vehicles. If you would like a car and driver, please speak to the hotel’s Travel Counter who will happily assist.
