  1. Em's daughter doubles as a Grab driver, if you summon a Grab in Naklua, it's a good chance it'll be she.
  2. Depends on where your staying, they don't seem keen in turning into Soi Buakhao or Sois off of it (Lengkee) these days so usually have to get out and walk the last few hundred yards.
  3. I've used Grab sometimes in BKK but most of the time I can get meter taxis just fine. Grab in Pattaya is a lot more dicey as the Grab drivers are under constant heat from the Taxi mafia. I summoned a Grab when I arrived from Bangkok at the bus station. I got matched to a driver very quickly but he called me up as I got off the bus and told me to put my phone away, don't show that I have the Grab app running and to meet him outside the back exit....be discreet. There have been stories before where the taxi guys have blockaded passing Grab cars and pulled the driver out for a beating. A real shame as the Grab car I had was new, clean, and the driver spoke excellent English.
  4. There's a bus (A1) outside Arrivals that takes the expressway and drops off at Mo Chit BTS for 30 baht and also be used in reverse for Mo Chit to the Airport. Depends on how much luggage you're bringing I guess. I've used it loads of times for domestic flights but usually that means just a rucksack and a cabin sized case. There's also the less frequent A2 bus which stops at Mo Chit but also at Victory Monument, a good few stops closer to Nana. I reckon you won't save much time as it drops off at Mo Chit then most of the other BTS stops between Mo Chit and Victory Monument.
  5. Yes, as per starman, the bus station at Jomtien sells tickets in advance and that bus goes to the Airport. Pattaya North Bus station goes to Ekamai, Mo Chit or Bangkok Southern Bus Terminal and there doesn't appear to be any advance ticket sales, just first come first served.
  6. Please see existing thread in ChitChat
  7. I used Air Asia for a flight from DMK to Phnom Penh, no issues at all. That's not to say I haven't had my fair share of delays on domestic flights with them
  8. For the past couple of years always used Mr Yo taxi service to get down to Patts when I’m in a rush, once I added them on Line, he asked me to send them the GPS location of where I lived (easily done from in Line) and they found me easily from there. Whenever I’ve booked, they nearly always turn up at mine *early*, decent new fleet of cars with calm drivers, sometimes female too. When I need to book them up again, usually just a couple of messages on Line and job done.
  9. I just had a quick check, Phase I : Bang Sue to Rangsit (including Don Muang station) is set for October 2020. The stations on the BTS extension into Samut Prakan have looked pretty much done and dusted for a while but it only opened 3 days ago. TIT. This map shows how things will look in the future including all BTS, MRT, ARL and Monorails....maybe this will all be done by 2030....
  10. The nearest MRT station would be Chatuchak Park (BTS Mo Chit), from there you can catch the Orange A1 or A2 buses that go to DM Airport using the expressway for 30 baht. If you're travelling light, those buses are a great option and only take about 10-15 minutes. Usually a lot of taxis "lurking" around that area too, but a bit of a tourist trap, ergo they don't tend to like going on the meter. Thailand version 5 or 6 promises a high-speed train connection from Don Muang to Swampy. …...Actually in all seriousness, in the short to mid-term there is going to be an airport link to DM opening in the next couple of years which I think starts around Bang Sue.
  11. Could be onto something there, whaddya reckon @Aitch ???
  12. Nice to see Hideaway has expanded its food menu above and beyond the panini. I tried the sausages the other week after seeing another customer eating it, it was a good feed.
  13. Pineapple on pizza is bad enough, durian is a declaration of war!
  14. OP is referring to the rail link for Suvanabhumi to downtown Bangkok.
  15. Last train is about 11pm I think. Meter Taxi it is then. Roads should be much quieter by then, you've missed the rush hour.
