    1. My flight will arrived 11.25 PM. after getting out of the airport i am interested to go PATTAYA. could you please advise me how we go their by safe way at night.

      1. Hi, though I have not been to Thailand yet, I have done pretty much the research regarding the trip. You can reach Pattaya by taking an airport taxi. They are available the whole night, as I have seen people getting taxis at night like 3-4 am, so you can avail them. I hope this can help you!
