Don Mueang Airport (DMK) to Pattaya (UTP) Destination Reviews

Taxi was about 20 minutes late while in their conditions it says that they will only wait 15 minutes maximum for the customer if the customer is delayed. It was an electric taxi, his battery was not fully charged and therefor he had to go on and off the gas pedal for the whole ride. Extremely uncomfortable, slow and it made me carsick.

Pick up at wrong Exit or different from as advised in confirmation slip. Drop off at wrong hotel and took the driver another 20-30 minutes to find the location using our GPS address as what given during our booking. It made the trip unpleasant otherwise it would be excellent.

The minivan was considerably good and pick up time was within acceptable zone. However the driver was not use to Pattaya area, he seems lost most of the time and have to ask someone in the area where was the NN Apartment (PATTAYA) located perhaps its difficult to find at wee hours in the morning!. Also the driver doesnot speak much English!!. For example: When I asked him how long you have been working with the company? He responded: I know I know?. It makes all of us LOL! What a joke! Nevertheless,overall service was reasonably acceptable.
