songthaews transport

Hi we will be staying at the Tira Tiraa, which (colour??) songthaews should we use to go to the Cicada market and / or Holiday Inn (recommended for cocktails in the glass floor bar) and where do we go to catch the bus

Light green - showing direction : Khao Takiab

Leave from the central market area , sorry no idea where your accommodation exactly is but appears to be in town center - you can see photo here :

I don't think there is any to H/Inn which is located at Vana Nava Waterpark , getting there from Cicada you would have to negotiate a fare , it is a huge tall building not far away

Hi,

 

It's a 5min walk from your condo to Night Market, where you can hop on

the green songthaew to Cicada Market (10B). To Holiday Inn, you'd take

a taxi, which is not cheap at all.

Just a very minor update to the information provided by others. The Green Songthaew should stop running at 21:00 (9.00 pm). but we have caught them as later as 21:25. Also the price is 10 baht in the daylight hours and 15 baht after dark.

Also additionally, they will stop anywhere except on the curbsides where there are red hatched lines, so if you are walking along and see one coming, just stick your hand out and wave.

Yes they do! Perhaps not right up to the Arrivals and Departure areas.

I believe they route past there but from town towards the airport you would need to get off opposite the airport , and that is a major very busy dual highway with 3 lanes each side , not the place to be trying to safely cross a double carriageway !

Southbound they could be waved down heading into town but even with just cabin baggage not a great way to get to where you are staying , up to you but I would just spend the extra unless you are on a tight budget.

What part of town would you be going to / from ?

They do a U turn at the airport entrance. If you then get off it is a short walk to the terminal

Thanks for that. This question comes up quite frequently.
