High speed rail: Pattaya to Bangkok in well under an hour – around 300 baht!
Basic times and prices have been announced for the confirmed high speed train linking U-Tapao airport with Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang in Bangkok.
The journey time between U-Tapao and the capital will be a mouth watering 45 minutes.
The cost of the journey will be just 330 baht. Speeds will reach 250 km per hour.
The train will stop five times from Bangkok at Chacherngsao, Chonburi, Sri Racha, Pattaya and U-Tapao.
A government ministerial meeting rubber-stamped the project yesterday that is part of ambitious plans to develop the much vaunted Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC).
