In this article, I will show you how to go back to Bangkok from Pattaya by bus.
First of all, I don’t want to recommend Rottu of a shared van in Thailand. I think that it is the most dangerous transportation facilities in Thailand which is ranked second in the world worst of Traffic Fatalities Rate. Because they are driving too much fast without leaving the distance between the cars, they feel that there are many drivers who inevitably drive a car accident.
And this Rottu is already popular in Thai people so if you ask the local Thai people to return to Bangkok, for example in Pattaya, you will be guided by local Thai people. Or this Rottu touting for business is also aggressive, so when you realize you are getting out of Pattaya to return to Bangkok you will be on a Rottu.
Again, I recommend to take a bus because of the viewpoint of safety.
