The Tuk Tuk
The Tuk-Tuk is a symbol of Thai ingenuity. It is a modification of a Japanese delivery vehicle popular in
that country during the 1960s. It is now being exported abroad. The name Tuk-Tuk is a Thai coinage
taken from the chugging sound of the vehicle.
It is also a symbol of Thai artistry in that the Tuk-Tuks are adorned and painted in many different ways and
colors. The colorful Tuk-Tuk has in fact become a tourist attraction in itself because of its novelty.
In the provinces, the Tuk-Tuk is the most popular means of transport. They operate like taxi's without any
meter. They are sometimes faster than ordinary taxi's in heavy traffic because they can easily move in and
out of a traffic jam.
Without any luggage, three people can fit into a Tuk-Tuk. It's possible to fit more in but it gets cramped.
