Glassflower

Company Information

A travel operator based in Pattaya offering transfers, airport shuttles and even yacht charters. Glassflower has offices in Bangkok and Ban Laem, close to the Cambodian border, with services to a huge range of destinations available.

Routes Served by Glassflower

Bangkok–Pattaya

Glassflower services do not operate on a set schedule; instead you can hire these vehicles to depart at the time of your choosing. One of the most popular trips is between Bangkok and Pattaya, with passengers able to choose between departing from and arriving into several transport hubs across Bangkok.

You can travel between Pattaya and Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports as well as Bangkok city centre. Connections between Pattaya and Suvarnabhumi Airport are priced at THB1,800, with tickets costing THB2,500 to Don Mueang International Airport and THB2,300 to the centre of Bangkok.

Airport transfers

Those who are staying in Bangkok and need to head to Suvarnabhumi can hire minivans to transfer them to the airport for THB900, good value if you are travelling in a group as these minivans have capacity for nine passengers which would make it just THB100 per person!

Other destinations from Bangkok

From Bangkok, you can travel with Glassflower all the way to Koh Chang. These transfers are priced at THB5,800 to and from Suvarnabhumi Airport and THB5,900 if you will be arriving into or departing from Bangkok city centre. Connections between Pattaya and Trat (from where you can travel by ferry to Koh Chang) are priced at THB4,500.

Of course, you can also travel to some of the other popular islands in the south of the country such as Koh Samui or Koh Tao. Glassflower offers services between Bangkok and Suratthani, from where you can catch a ferry across to Koh Samui, with the vehicle hire priced at THB12,000. Similarly, you can travel between Bangkok and Chumphon for THB6,900 and then visit Koh Tao.

Slightly shorter trips from Bangkok are also common including transfers to Ayutthaya (THB1,900), Nonthaburi (THB1,200), Khao Yai National Park (THB3,200), Cha-am (THB2,800) and Hua Hin (THB2,950).

Pros

The vehicles used by Glassflower on all routes are very high quality and likely to be safer than travelling with some private transport operators across the country where the drivers may not be as careful as you would like. Also, travelling on these routes with Glassflower is likely to be more comfortable than using other bus operators where you will cramped onto a bus or minivan. Glassflower is a good option for those who just cannot face public transport!

The option of choosing airport transfers is also useful, especially as this means that you do not have to head into the centre of Bangkok in order to catch further transport to your destination, if you are not planning on staying in Bangkok itself.

Cons

The biggest issue with travelling on Thailand’s crowded roads is the threat of delays which is ever present, especially when dealing with the hectic Bangkok traffic. Of course, this is also an issue with all bus operators so if you are on a tight schedule you may want to consider train travel instead.

Keep in mind

All the vehicles that can be hired are VIP minivans which will have a capacity of nine passengers.

Travellers Reviews

The vehicles used are high quality and offer passengers a greater level of comfort than is the case with other transport operators across the country. However, the cost of hiring these minivans will price many travellers out, unless they are travelling in a larger group in which case this can be a good value option. Plus you will have the added bonus of not having to deal with public transport including the crowds at the bus station!

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

Driver was late, He didn't drive very safely, always on the phonewe almost had an accident, as he drove over a cone that was in the middle of the road for some works in progress. I can't believe he didn't see a giant bright orange cone in the middle of the road ?!

Really nice car and like new. It was a comfortable 3-hour drive to the small inn in Pattaya from Bangkok. My driver stopped at a 7-11 so I could purchase snacks before delivering me. Very nice woman. I recommend this service because it takes all the stress out of the transfer.

We spent a lovely day on a catamaran tour, Island hopping. Pick up was offered for a surcharge, as we stayed in Pattaya we took a taxi to the Ocean Marina. The tour was full with about 60 passengers. The two beaches we went two weren't too crowded compared to the local ferry service to Ko Lan. A towel was provided and snorkeling equipment was available for every guest for a security deposit. For a snack we got waffles and fruit. Lunch was good, served hot and plenty for everyone. Water & soft drinks were included, alcoholic drinks available for a charge. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I can recommend this tour.

Noon pickup and no driver. Unable to reach 12asia or Glassflower by text or email and had no phone for either. After 45 minutes of trying to deal with language barrier at hotel desk, finally found phone for Glassflower and called. Hemming and hawing and finally said it must be traffic and van on way. Another 20 minutes and another call. More vague comments then they said there was a mistake and they guessed they forgot. Finally said the driver left about 15 minutes ago. When the driver was on the way I mentioned the name of the resort we were going to in Hua Hin, about 3 to 4 hours away. He nodded as though familiar with it. Once in Hua Hin he had no idea where to go and no less than 3 Times stopped to exit the van and make phone calls to get info. I gave 3 stars because at least the driver endured and did not just dump us. I will be looking for other arrangements for trip back to BKK in a week,

The driver arrived 1 hour late for pick up, with no explanation or apologies (thankfully 12goasia staff was helpful on the phone). The drive went OK up to the last 30 minutes, when the driver obviously wanted to call it a day and drove somewhat carelessly, and dropped us off without helping to unload the suitcases or even responding to our polite goodbyes. On the positive side: we arrived alive and well.

Car and driver good. But pick up was 45 minutes late. Turns out there was a problem with the booking but attitude of the hotline was - do you want to cancel, have you got a plane to catch, why you worried the driver is late, this is not our problem but the traffic. It was folllowed up by an apology email. Let’s see what the return pick up is like ???

The driver understood not a single word of English. Further on, the highway fees were NOT included. For such an amount of money i’d rather take the plane before taking that trip again. The driving itself was okay but sometimes a little bit scary becomes of too much mobile usage.

The trip was ok once it got started. Our pickup was scheduled for 11 AM. We were at the front lobby looking out the window where all the taxi's etc come and go. At 11:30 I started making phone calls because there was no car or driver showing up for us. At 11:45 we finally found him around the side of the building. He said he was there for over an hour. I can't confirm if he was or wasn't. Why he didn't come to the front lobby where the taxi's come and go and look for us is beyond me. The rest of the trip was fine.

I don't know where to start. Every trip can cause problems, but it's about the way you deal with them that shows, if you're a professional or not. We had two drivers. One from Siem Reap to the border of Thailand and one from the border to Pattaya. In Siem Reap we stayed at an Airbnb, which was located in a side street, but easy to find for any gps or navigation app. To avoid any problems, I contacted the hotline of Glassflower two days before the pickup and gave them specific details on how to find the pick up point. In the morning of the pickup day we received a phone call from the driver saying he can't find it. Okay happens, but the driver became really rude. He started yelling at my girlfriend through the phone and demanded to talk to a local, but our apartment hosts are not from Cambodia so we kindly explained several times that we cannot get a local on the phone and he yelled even louder and hung up. Then I called him again and explained him the situation one more time. He immediately yelled at us and said that he just won't pick us up. After I called the hotline again, they told me that the driver was going to come to us. They found us, but the atmosphere was rather tense of course. The other driver was a lot nicer, but he didn't know the drop off address, despite me giving it to Glassflower twice. It was a rather minor problem, but it shows that there is probably hardly any communication within the company. When we finally arrived, he was so bold to ask for a tip before we even unloaded the luggage from the car. We would have tipped him, but people shouldn't ask for a tip. A tip is a gesture coming from the customer and the customer alone. We paid a lot for this trip, so they definitely have enough money to equip their cars with simple navigation systems, which would have prevented most of the problems I have mentioned.
