But if you’re not a fan of strolling and would prefer to take a ride down the Beach Road, then you can take the baht bus down the entire Pattaya Beach Road for just 10 baht. If it ever cost you any more than 10 or 20 baht then you are being overcharged. It is always best practice to just hop on and off these buses, don’t ask the driver how much, you do that you have just made his day! How to get on the baht bus on Beach Road is very easy, you just need to stand on the side of the road and make sure that it is not the beach side of the road as it is illegal to for the drivers stop on that side.
Next is just to make sure that the driver can see you, so you can flag them down for you to be seated. Make sure that you do sit or if there is no space on that particular baht bus then do not get on, because the new law states that you cannot stand inside or outside of the bus. Ignore this and you will get fine that is a minimum of 2,000 baht. Other than that then you’re good to go, just make sure that you press the little buzzer above your head to let the driver know that you would like to get off. Once you do get off don’t forget to pay the fee, walk up to the passenger side of the bus and give the driver your 10 baht then you can be on your way.
