Car to Bangkok from Jomtien

You can take a mini van to Jomtien. If you get off the skytrain at Victory Monument station and then go and look for the van going to Jomtien.
You will see that there are dozens of vans like this one, so you will need to ask someone, pay your money and the van will leave when full.
The price of the van to Jomtien should be about 150 Baht, but the price could vary, depending upon your attitude. The van will be quicker than the bus and is a good mid-priced option if you only have carry on luggage.

The beach in Jomtien is quieter than Pattaya. If you are not sure which hotel to stay in Jomtien then may I suggest a reasonable hotel with a great swimming pool, that is just across from the beach.
