    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

    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!!

    Tuk-tuk is a three-wheeled motorcycle.
    It is good for a short distance ride and you try to go by tuk tuk if i came to Thailand

    Tuk Tuk are usually faster in the traffice than taxis or busses. There is no meter so you have to ask for the fare and do a little bargaining :)

    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.

    Try the tuk-tuk (motorized rickshaw) at least once. They overcharge, I know, but they're fun. And they're fast, thanks to tuk-tuk drivers who drive like maniacs.

    It's not the best way but you have to try a tuk-tuk once! It's like dicing with death, you breathe in petrol all time and your driver will try and take you to some shop somewhere - but do it!!

    Tuk Tuk

    by johnbradshawlayfield Written Dec 20, 2006

    We were not excited to sit in Tuk Tuks as we have our Bajaj Rickshaws in India which are more comfortable and cheap than the Thai tuk tuks

    Tuk-tuk Unique to Bangkok

    Tuk-tuk driver

    Manouvre congested streets, fast but dangerous. Good for short trip, rushing for time and for the unique experience.

    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

    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.
