    These 3-wheel taxis are found all over the place in Bangkok and are one of the ways to get round the city quickly. They get their names from the sound of the engine – tuk-tuk-tuk-tuk

    tuk tuk

    Tuk-tuk is a three-wheeled motorcycle.
    They are cheap, convenient and fast. They managege to snake in and out of the heavy Bankok traffic.
    Except for the fumes, it 's fun.

    Nadine and I

    This is I, and Nadine my travel mate. We were in the tuk tuks going to temple for prayer after having a bad luck everyday but still we were happy too overwhelmed.

    3 wheels and a container of propane!

    Apparently the tuk-tuks in Bangkok have been reconfigured to run on propane -- we were told the tank was right under the passenger seat! So I waited for a more traditional tuk-tuk ride in Phnom Penh!

    The tut tuk transportation

    Allways try to beat down the price, but overcoat don't start the trip without agreeing the price. It's the best and cheaper way to move around Bangkok.

    They cost very cheap, and driver will usually ask you for 100 or up to 300 baths. No more than 50 baths, and if they say no, pick a taxi, it will be cheaper

    Around Bangkok, you can easilly find these Tuktuk. When you are walking the city centers, sometimes they are just behind you asking for a ride.

    Bangkok is a regional transportation hub. You can catch airplanes, trains and buses to most desired locations from here.

    But, I recommend a few TukTuk rides just for the experience!!

    Also known as "samlor", is a three-wheeled taxi without a meter. Fares must be negotiated beforehand. They're normally a little cheaper than ordinary taxis but are suitable for short trips only.

    Tuk-tuk: even though the polution is really bad in Bangkok, tuk-tuks are the best way to go around. Don't forget to negotiate the fare BEFORE you hop in though.

    Take a tuk-tuk ! Very fast way of transport, inexpensive and fun to ride ! Short trips (few blocks/max. 30 min.) will cost about 20-30 Baht.
