can take a taxi from poipet/aranyapathet border for about 2000 baht, or 75 dollars.

you can take a long series of local buses from poipet to pattaya, I am not sure about the connections, not sure if it can be done in one day.

there is a good chance that you will find either a mini bus or a gambling bus from the border to pattaya midday, for about 300 to 400 baht.

you can take a minibus to Bangkok victory monument for about 230 baht, skytrain to ekamai station and a bus to pattaya, all in one day easily, total about 400 baht.

You could take the train from the border (Aranyapathet) to Hualamphong which is near Ekamai bus St (the one with connect to Pattaya)

There are larger buses to Bangkok but get the one to Ekamai not Mochit. times can be found on google.

I think the easiest option would be to return to Bangkok, then get the bus to pattaya from there.

I'm thinking you're probably booking return flights to Bangkok because they're cheaper but I would check out the price of flying into Phnom Penh or siem Reap then returning from Bangkok, it would save backtracking.
