Complimentary coffee breaks will be served during the ad-hoc and pre-meetings on Saturday and Sunday.

In addition to the top-class hotel restaurants, the city center, with its abundance of superb Thai and international restaurants, is only 10 minutes away (about $3 by the famous Pattaya's taxi-truck).

 

Transportation

The city of Pattaya is located 160 km from Bangkok International Airport (BKK). Driving time is between 1.5 to 3 hours depending on traffic conditions. Friday afternoon is the worst time to arrive as it may sometimes take over 4 hours.

A taxi ride from BKK to the Royal Cliff would cost between 1,500 to 3,000 Baht (~$35-$75), depending on type of car, number of passengers and your bargain skills. Details on public transportation can be found in:

http://www.pattayacity.com/pattaya/trans.html


MPEG Meeting Shuttle Service

A special shuttle service for the MPEG delegates between the airport and the Royal Cliff will be operated before and after the meeting. The fee is US$25 each direction per person. The service will be scheduled according to arrival and departure times as reported in the registration form. Upon arrival, a person carrying an MPEG sign will be waiting for the delegates at the exit of the Customs area.

The service depends on minimum number of passengers on a ride. If the service cannot be arranged due to singular arrival time the delegate will be notified by e-mail, and a private service at $75 per car will be offered.

Local Transportation

Rental cars are available from local and international companies. Driving in Thailand is on the left and is an experience for the adventurous.

The Royal Cliff Beach Resort in less than 10 minutes from the infamous Pattaya city. You will most probably go there by the "Baht Bus". The Fare is 10 or 20 Baht for "In Route" and 50 to 100 Baht after bargaining for a "Hired" ride. But many Tourists have complained of over charging by more than a few drivers of these modified pick-up trucks. Please Set the Price in Advance and have correct change. We STRONGLY suggest you smile and be overly friendly when bargaining with the drivers. A Good Attitude will Return the Same. If you yell and get angry expect the same or worse in return. You will learn how to use them in a few days and they really are a bargain for the money. For "In Route" just jump on without saying anything and hit the Bell Switch on the Roof to Stop. Get off and give the CORRECT Change.

They will send a username, password and an electronic copy of a user manual that includes phone number listing for the entire country to your e-mail address.

To buy this product go here. You need the WebNet 30 hours.

A tip you will not find in the manual: their SMTP server address is mail.loxinfo.co.th.

Thailand uses the RJ-11 modular jack, which is the same as the United States.

 

General Information

Local time is GMT + 7. Thailand enjoys a tropical climate E warm and humid throughout the year. The weather in Pattaya in March is relatively dry and not yet so hot. Average daytime temperature is 310 C (880 F). Rain is moderate. We suggest bringing only light cloths. In addition, do not forget to bring a bathing suit, hat, sunglasses and sun block lotion.

Visa

Visitors usually do not require an entry visa to Thailand if coming as tourists. A 30-day stay permit is given by passport control upon arrival. In case of doubt, please inquire with your travel agent, the Thai Embassy or Consulate in your country.

Currency / Credit Cards

Local currency is the Thai Baht (THB). Many foreign currencies are also accepted (yet the rate charge may be high). The current exchange rate is 1 USD = 43 THB. All major credit cards are widely accepted by hotels, shops and restaurants. ATMs (accepting international cards), banks and currency exchange offices are around every corner.

To dial International dial 001 followed by country code, area code and telephone number.

Electricity

Thailand has 220 Volts, 50 Hz electricity supply. A two flat-pin plug (American/Japanese) can be used everywhere, and most sockets will also accommodate round-pin plugs.

Tipping

Although not mandatory, tipping is appreciated in Thailand. In most cases you will be happy to tip because the service is superb...
