If you like to go by ferry, you need to get to the Bali Hai Pier, which is at the end of the Walking Street.

Once you reach the Bali Hai pier, you have to buy the ticket at the counter, only 30 baht pp. If someone asks you to pay more than 30 Baht then you are probably not at the right counter.

Getting to Koh Laan:

>>> By Ferry Boat >>> 30 Baht pp, per way.

To Tawean Beach

From Bali Hai pier to Tawaen pier 8am, 9am, 11am, 1pm

From Tawaen pier to Bali Hai pier 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, 6pm

To Naban pier

From Bali Hai pier to Naban pier 7am, 10am, 12pm, 2pm, 3.30pm, 5pm, 6.30pm

From Naban pier to Bali Hai pier 6.30am, 7.30, 9.30, 12pm, 2pm, 5pm, 6pm.

After this you have to walk about 400 meters and board the ferry. The ferry will start exactly on time, and will take about 35 - 40 minutes. The entire route will be very scenic & photogenic.

>>> By Speed Boat >>> 1500 - 2000 Baht per boat which can accommodate 6 to 8 persons.

If you want to go fast you can hire a speed boat. What determines price is the size of the boat, if you have a small group pick out one of the smaller boats. Speed boat operators are easy to find. They operate all along Beach Road. In fact you really don't have to find them they will find you, sooner than you think. The will take only 15 minutes. You can even ask for an 3 islands tour Koh Krok island – Koh Sak island – Koh Larn island.

>>> By packaged tour >>> 450 - 500 Baht pp. Includes Lunch & transfers from your hotel.(general timing 9 am to 5 pm)

Hope this helps

Dear Mr Rao,

List to trips in Pattaya,

Coral island tour with lunch

Transfer from hotel to departure point. Depart by speed boat to KOH LARN (coral island). You may enjoy various beach activities at your own expense. Indian buffet lunch will be served in local restaurant on the mainland.

Alcazar show

It is a lady boy show with great music, terrific sets and stunning costumes. This is similar to famous Lido show Paris which costs more than 100 USD.

Mini Siam:

Wonders are everywhere around the world. The idea, the imagination and the abilities of human beings are the inspiration to create these wonders. Each nation substantially reflects their unique art, culture and traditions in great architecture. Similar to mini Europe in Brussels.

Sri Racha Tiger Zoo

Here large number of Bengal tigers as well as crocodiles and other animals can be found. Watch the show involving trainers with Tigers and crocodiles. Located 50 km from Pattaya on the way to Bangkok

Underwater world

Aquarium consists of many fishes which visitors can see very closely.

Noong Nooch Village

It is a recreational park about 18kms south of Pattaya in typical Thai setting. Watch cultural and elephant shows. There is a miniature open zoo and bird park.

Rippley's Believe it or Not

All Play package is included.It has five different attractions Museum, Haunted House, Moving Theatre, Infinity Maze only, Wax work.

Koh Larn eats up a big part of your day. You are only in Pattaya 2 days anyway. Koh Larn may not be as good as you expect. Hard to please big groups anyway. Not to mention hard to move big groups too! To save time you may have to use faster speedboats. But this faster transportation will not be cheap!

I suggest you find out at the local beach out there for the speed boat which takes you to coral island... have done this twice already... with a group of 8 it will be very economical and if you bargain correctly then it might turn out to be cheaper.... and then the boat is yours to go and come back... and it is can easily accommodate 8 people...

Is it safe to go to coral beach if we travelling with kids and 2 years old baby?

Because from the travel agent, it's not recomended for child and infant?

Or maybe its only for speedboad? And we still can go safely if we use the ferry? Since it will be alot bigger & not as fast as speed boat?

Thank you.
