Whilst Libya is indeed correct that Pattaya's post office code is 20260, Pattaya is a non-delivery post office.

Mail received there is re-sent to Banglamung 20150 to be sorted and delivered. That's why the post boxes around town have 20150 on, not 20260.

So if you write 20150 on your post then it will go straight to Banglamung to be delivered instead of Pattaya PO thence to Banglamung.

And that also cuts out one step where farang addressed post can be 'lost'.

So should I change my personal address letters and business cards to 20150?

Surely, letters automatically go to Banglamung Post Office for sorting, when addressed 20260?

I understand that a postcode 20260 is to identify where I am in Pattaya, ie. near Pattaya Klang, whereas if I lived up in Naklua I would be 20150?

Too late for me - good explanation and comment spot on - just lost 2 credit cards and a phone sent to 20260 instead of 20150, despite being sent signed for. On the subject of addresses can anyone explain how the Moo system works. I have a map showing quite clearly my village is bang :o:D:D in the middle of an area clearly indicated as Moo 6, but nobody seems to use Moo 6, they just seem to use Moo 1. Any explanations ?

It's hard to believe that the loss of 2 credit cards and a phone has something to do with the zipcode.

I'm living on the dark side and I'm using 20150 AND 20260. Of course, there's also mail I didn't receive, but that has nothing to do with the zipcodes.

I have had incoming mail corrected with the 20150 zip code a few times.

My ToT bills are addressed to the 20150 postal code, but the rest of my mail uses the 20260 code. That's also to code I use when applying for Residency certificates.

Haven't had any mail not arrive (that I know of).

I used to have mail delivered to 20260. However, someone once sent me something from Bangkok, and the lady at the post office had crossed out 20260, and written 20150. So, for incoming mail, You need to use 20150. My mother has had mail delivered to her address using 20260 for years and all packages have been delivered no problems.. I wouldn't worry about it if you have already used 20260.

Also, about the Moo.. I don't always use Moo when receiving mail, so I wouldn't worry about it. As long as you have clearly your soi , soi number , house number ect.

The Moo numbers and the house numbers are a law unto themselves. Don't try to figure it out - there's no logic and you will get brain ache.

The only people who know the location of all the Moos and house numbers are the postmen.

My soi doesn't have a name or number. I only have a moo number and a house number.

To my knowledge I have never had any mail go astray, and I receive quite a lot of local mail, mail from Bangkok and mail from overseas. I have also received packages and parcels, local and overseas. The postman is brilliant.

Post code 20150. :o

A pretty old relative of mine, uses the following address:

Mr. Farangtingtong

112/xxx, Moo 10

20150 Thailand

For several years I'm receiving het birthday cards and seasonal wishes.

Mentioning Sois, Villages, Amphurs and Moobaans is more an indication for visitors.

I just use:

xxx/xx Soi Arunothai x

Pattaya Klang

Nongprue, Banglamung

Chonburi 20150

Never had any problems yet, never used the Moo due to not being sure of the exact one. Different people use different Moo's around here...

All my official documents when posted to me state ''20150'' as the post code, and no mention of Pattaya only Chonburi

20150

I have a business card from one of the go-gos and it reads 20150 as the zip.
