POST OFFICES AND POST BOXES
Sending and receiving postcards, letters, parcels and packages is not difficult when you know where all the main post offices are in Pattaya. Also most of the post offices around Pattaya have a post box service and you can rent a small post box for a small monthly or yearly fee.
POSTING BY REGISTERED MAIL
Any important documents and anything of any value should be sent via registered mail and multiple items should be sent separately if possible, just as a precaution, the old saying ‘don’t put all your eggs in one basket’ holds true, the Thai postal service is pretty reliable but can be disorganized at times, I have spoken to people who’s mail never arrived even though it was registered.
IS IT SAFE TO SEND VALUABLES?
There is always a small risk of losing your sent items but of course it is up to you if you want to use the service, test it out first with small, unimportant items first to see if they arrive, I have never had a problem with anything I have ever sent or received.
Registered mail may cost you a little more but it is certainly worth the peace of mind that it can be tracked if so desired.
WHERE ARE PATTAYA’S POST OFFICES

THE BANGLAMUNG POST OFFICE
Nakluea Post Office is also a state run enterprise and is much cheaper than the post office in Pattaya, the trade of is that it may be hard for the average tourist to communicate with the staff as they are not as used to dealing with foreigners.
Located in the main central business centre of Nakluea, 2.5 kms north of Pattaya
BIG C EXTRA SHOPPING CENTRE
Big C Extra Post Office is a privately owned business and due to its location and rent you will find it much more expensive than other options as the overhead costs will be passed on to you, if you don’t mind the price than it is a very handy location.
