Re: Facebook comments to “Tour buses create fear, loathing in Pattaya” (PM Mailbag Friday, 15 August 2014) – Going back over 20+ years brings back memories of my first arrival here. My bus from Bangkok dropped me off outside Royal Garden Plaza. There we transferred to pickups to our lodgings. The bus depot was in Soi 1 or 2 off Beach Road. The terminal at Pattaya nua was used but not to the extent it is used today. The depot near TOT on Pattaya klang is still in operation. For someone to say there were no buses here 9 years ago must be visually impaired. To my knowledge buses have always parked on Beach Road.
