Hi OSGeo,

Pattaya city is special administrative city of Chonburi province and 
located East side of Thailand. It will take about 90-120 minutes to 
reach from the main international air-port to the conference venue. 
There is excellent Highway road collection by passing the city traffic. 
Taxi, buses (every hour) are available at any time and would cost around 
5USD for bus and 30USD for taxi.

If you have plan for extend your stay and visit Chaing Mai, Phuket or 
Samui Island. There is an airport 'U-Taprao' which is 30km from Pattaya 
city and daily low-cost flight are available. Additionally, the low-cost 
flights for China, Russian and South East Asia countries are available.
BTW, this airport is being upgraded and will be operated as an 
International airport in mid of 2017 [1].

We would also like to point out that the conference venue and 
surroundings is completely self-contained. Of course we are sure that 
participants would like to see Bangkok City and we will have a on site 
travel desk to take care of all local traveling needs.

The weather of Pattaya in September is max 30 Celsius and minimum 25 
degree Celsius. It is a wet month where we can expect rains. But it is 
not everyday raining. We plan to include an umbrella in the conference 
kit!! September is a lean tourist season in Pattaya so you can expect 
the cheapest flight, hotel and even discounts at restaurants and bars.


Best regards

Nitin and Sarawut
