The easiest way to exit to Sukhumvit road and there catch a passing bus, tuk-tuk or just a ride, and off in Pattaya on Sukhumvit or at the North station of the PTT, if the bus goes there. You can directly at the bus station in Rayong and from there to Pattaya. From there buses run frequently from Bangkok approximately every hour, if memory serves, go past Pattaya without the arrival at the North station of Pattaya, so, too, will jump on Sukhumvit. The issue price under any option about 70 baht.
As for where to go on Sukhumvit in Pattaya, it is best to do this at the intersection with one of the main streets where you can catch a tuk-tuk to the centre. Here view the map is where tuk-tuks patiska go. If you do not understand, just go near the North bus station Pattaya and from there by tuk-tuk to the center. ...
