Pattaya has an airport? why do I have to fly to Suvarnabhumi when I come from overseas

You don't! Depends WHERE you start your journey though.  Google "flights to utapao"

Did you not bother reading the comments about U-Tapao above?

I did, after replying to BritTim's post and scrolling down further. But anyway, it wasn't BritTim that commented about U-Tapao was it?

So? I didn't say it was - I replied to YOU. Suggestion: start at the beginning of this thread and read it all, then you'll understand why I said what I did.

Exactly!  That's WHY most of us don't fly from our home countries to U-Tapao.

The choice of flights and airlines is very limited if you fly direct from, say, UK to UTP

So flying to BKK and getting a taxi IS definitely faster and possibly cheaper than connecting.

 

I believe that quite a few of the Russian charter flight do go to UTP, and you can certainly fly to other parts of SE Asia from there. So...it is international but very small and limited in which airlines use it.

And I with Emirates, the same. I was merely outlining what can be done though UTP not what I necessarily do.

What exactly is your point?

My point is posters tell me Pattaya has an airport no it has not U-Tapo is about 40 km

of Pattaya Suvarnabhumi is about 85 so why should I change planes in Bangkok and wait for the connecting flight for maybe hours if I can get a taxi and drive to Pattaya for about 90 minutes

I arrived yesterday morning at Suvarnabhumi traveling from Yangon.  Arrived in the immigration Queue at 10:45 and collected luggage and was out through customs by 10:59 an efficient service throughout. 

Yeah... but you're a newbie.

OK - UTP is 40km from Pattaya so is local to and serves Pattaya and is popularly known as Pattaya airport.  It's a small international airport.

Suvarnabhumi is local to Bangkok and also serves Pattaya

Suvarnabhumi is a BIG international airport and you have MUCH more choice of flights. Got it now?
