Doing a similar job to the taxi is Thailand’s ubiquitous tuk-tuk ตุ๊กๆ. So named because of the sound of their engine, these are motorized rickshaws (three wheel vehicle) and are popular amongst tourists for their novelty value. They are occasionally faster than taxis in heavy traffic as weaving in and out is easier, but generally about the same or slower.
They are part of the Bangkok scene and you will usually find these vehicles in other part’s of Thailand.
If you visit Thailand they are a must go ride, if only once.
