    Family transport

    Family transport

    The majority of Thai families do not own cars but get around on motorbikes instead. Compared to many, the vehicle in the photo represents real luxury as it has a sidecar attached.
    I was concerned to see this woman using a mobile phone without a hands-free set though. Surely it would be possible to incorporate such a device into the bike's onboard stereo and entertainment system?

    Is it safe?

    Another means of public transportation in Hatyai is motorcycle taxi. You can tell the motorcycle taxi by the yellow, orange or red vests with a number at the back that the drivers wear. It is slightly cheaper than tuk-tuk. But I think it is not so safe compared to tuk-tuk, is it? Anyway, I saw many locals use them. I guess it is okay.

    I guess it is only suitable if you travel alone. Otherwise, you might as well take tuk-tuk.

    sorry... forgot to take a picture of the motorcycle taxi...

    The most economy mode of transport for local Thai people or the regular travellers who travel on budget. The motorcycle taxi is normally used for short distance riding to the boarder at Sadao Immigration office. You can get their service at the Bukit Kayu Hitam Duty Free Complex - Taxi Parking Area.

    Motorbike Taxi

    Motorbike Taxi is one option of getting around, and probably the quickest. However, ride at your own risk. The motorbike taxi drivers can be identified by the coloured vests they wear.

    If you decide to rent or buy a motorbike to get around make sure you know how to keep dry in the rain.
