Think you might have to change buses in BKK but you can definitely take the bus from Pattaya to Nong Kai.

Here's the schedule from BKK:

I went by overnight train from BKK so the route would be Patts to Ekamai, Skytrain/metro to the station then the train.

Train and bed is much better than trying to sleep on a bus. 2nd class a/c sleeper, lower berth is a good way to go.

I'll throw my vote in for the train as well. Much more relaxing plus you get the vendors coming board selling beer and such as that...

I THINK worth checking with Chan Tours ,can catch 2 buses a day ,one in day and a night bus.
The bus is VIP ,book seats downstairs ,lots of room and reclimbing seats where you can get a good sleep.

The bus will stop just outside Korat for 20 minute break ,then stop at Khon Kaen ,then I know it gooes to Undon Thani
then it could go onto Nonk Kai ,check if it goes onto Nong Kai

Takes about 8/9 hours to Khon Kaen ,then 2 hours to Undon and Nong Kai is about 30 minutes

So will all the stops total journey should be about 12 hours .Cost Khon Kaen is about 500 bhts

I think the train from BKK to Nong Kai takes about same time ,but you can book sleeper
Catch 8pm arrive about 8 30 am next day
first class sleeper just over 1200 bhts

But if you are going to pay 1200 bhts for the train fly for about the same amount
Fly with Air Asia from BKK to undon ,then taxi to bus station then catch bus to Nong Kai
You will need taxi to BBK air port ,takes about 1 1/2 hours ,then waiting time at airport 1 hour ,1 hour flight ,then about 1 hour to Nonk Kai with the waiting in Undon
should do trip in about 5 hours if all goes well
See info below flight found for under 1000 bhts

I will take the train anytime, IMO its just the much better experience.

Fly and you get the genuine airport/airplane experience: act like a sausage and be treated like one. Plus fucking around with security, taxis here and there and all the other joys of air travel in the 21st century.
Bus takes too long and often has loud, mindless and annoying crap on TV.
The train will give an authentic experience with real Thai people!!! not BGs. Beer, snacks and a comfy bed. Nothing like a blowjob in your berth before lights out.

Hi,
Bus goes from Nong Khai to Pattaya without going through BKK. Goes over the mountain. Bypassing Korat and BKK. on the 304 road to HW 7 to PATS. Trip from Udon Thani, First bus leaves there about 0730Hrs and gets into Pattaya at about 1700Hrs. No changing buses and cost 800B single. My friend took this bus last month. He said it was very good and comfy. It leaves NK. nearly a hour before Udon time.
I have been once by train on B.M.s recommendations. NEVER again. I might have been unlucky. The cost was also a lot dearer. Plus eatra fares to BKK. If you can travel in the daytime, no need to sleep just enjoy the sights, it might be better. At night constant rocking, stops and starts, and whistle blowing, made sleep for me impossible and was not very comfy.
Cheers Doug.

Been coming to Thailand since '81. Have taken trains all over. Take the train. (1st class sleeper is worth the extra money.) Nong Kai is a nice town for a few days. Very laid back. The riverboat/dinner thing is kind of fun once.
In Bangkok, you can take the subway from sukimvit (soi Asoke) right into the train station at the end of the line. Used to be a lot of pickpockets in the BKK train station though.
