Feedback from Bangkok Team
We will arrange airport pickup and drop at very reasonable cost.
We have chosen Jomtien Beach Hotel Ambassador due to many factors:
1. Frequent transport available from all airports in Bangkok and Pattaya to
the conference hotel location
2. No traffic jams
3. Away in a very exciting atmosphere on the beach
4. Self contained big hotel complex - very safe
5. Famous Tourist place Pattaya (10-15 minutes away) has free shuttle from
hotel every 30 minutes and local taxi easily available
6. 4 Star Hotel but rooms at 2 star price as the hotel is having 4000+ rooms
7. Many function/ meeting rooms

> 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 .
> 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.
