Mirabel is at 1 hour from Suwanabhum airport and at 6km from the beaches and walking street.
Normal rate for the taxi from airport is around 1200Thb (about 40Usd).
Be careful of people trying to offer you official or non official taxis at higher rates!
Train not yet available!! some may offer you cheaper
- Also exchange a minimum of currency at airport, as rate is generally much lower.
To rent a car from the airport is a good and safer solutions. Book in advance by internet to large rental companies ( you will have a better insurance, better car ...) But do not forget your international driving licence...
Sometimes fast ! Sometimes slow !
BUT...Be aware of the rules...

2/ green light: better stop and check if my brother in law is around…
Dogs bus not yet available! Be generous !
3/ officially we drive on the left side of the road. This is officially only!
4/ priority. Apart from my brother in law, please consider that the bigger one always win…
5/ be aware that you are a foreigner (farang), and as such, in case of accident, it is your own responsibility, and you are wrong!
Bus are comfortable ! Beware of floading !
You still want to rent???
or maybe, for Pattaya, rent a motorcycle ( Bring a valid international licence)
This possibility is very popular here and offers the advantage of bringing good business to hospitals and crematoriums.
Motorcycle convenient for families You can rent big bikes!
