Does anyone have any information regarding travelling from Pattaya to Aranyaprathet? I need to cross into Cambodia on the 4th March and be in Siem Reap at the end of that day. Is is viable to rent a taxi to the border? Any information apreciated stokesy

As there is no direct bus to Aran from Pattaya, I took a bus to Chachoengsao (abt 3 hrs), and from here another bus to Aran (about 3 hrs...I think it was 100 plus bahts). From Aran, you take tuk tuk (50-80 bahts). Try to get to the Poipet border before the crowd gets in...9am-11am.a

Cheers.

Pat,
There are plenty of companies that take visa runners to the border everyday from Pattaya. Some are very nice VIP buses and others use a mini bus. They charge roundtrip as they will come back to Pattaya the same day. The fees are in the 1,800-2,000bt per person. This includes your Cambodian visa. There are also many freelance taxi operators that run visitors to the airport in private cars. Check with them as well for a quote to Arayaprethet. For 2 people, this maybe a viable option if time is more important than baht. Good Luck.

Depends on how much you want to spend. You can find transportation from Pattaya to Cambodia - but it won't be cheap.

You can also take the cheap 120 baht bus to Bangkok and take the train or bus from there to the border.

And of course, like previously mentioned, you have the border runner services, check with a travel agent for prices.
