Took a cab (cost Thb350) to our hotel--Lodge 61 Hotel.

Simply ate some breakfast before we headed to Pattaya by bus from Ekamai Station. Actually we wanted to took bus to Pattaya but bought wrong ticket, ended up we went Pattaya by van (cost Thb130).. get cheated by the seller! By the way, by van is way faster than bus though is not comfy. It took 2 hours to reach Pattaya.
