A Bangkok Taxi Driver – Bangkok To Pattaya

Khao San Road taxi driver

I met this taxi driver on Khao San Road. We wanted to get to Pattaya and i negotiated a deal with the driver. The agreed price was 1000 baht and i payed the road tolls.

You can get mini vans around Khao San Road that will take you to Pattaya for about 300 baht but you will be crammed into the van like sardines and it can be a uncomfortable ride.

This trip was on Labour Day and leading into a 4 or 5 day holiday for the Thai people so lots of them headed towards Pattaya for a break. The total trip usually takes about 90-120 minutes depending on traffic and your driver, however due to the mass traffic this trip took closer to 4 hours.

In the end i payed him 1200 plus i payed the tolls. A 200 baht tip for his extra time, calmness and overall good attitude was well deserved. He was a happy guy, family man and offered so many great tips and advice about Thailand.

If you are on Khao San Road, keep a look out for this guy. He has worked Khao San Road for 18 years and is there every day. Tell him Dead Farang says Hi.

  1. where should i go to get a ruasisn lady in Bangkok ?*You see them on Sukhumvit Road, Nana area, but to be honest I can’t tell a Russian from a Ukranian or a Bulgarian! Many of them are skinny long legged women. Grace does get a lot of unusual tourists. But many tourists staying there are from the Middle East. Russian women in the trade are often protected by the Russian Mafia. More of them in in the Walking Street area. Also walking on Road across from Royal Garden Mall on up to Walking Street. There are direct flights from Russia to Satahip which is not too far from . You see them shopping in the Central Festiva Mall pretty often too.Bangkok is okay for a few days but if city nightlife is what you want will be much cheaper. Hotels, restaurants and local transportation is just about the cheapest in Thailand.Will they want you around them is the question!Do svidaniya!
