Welcome to Bangkok. You ride tuk tuk?

After leaving Hong Kong, I headed straight for Bangkok.

As you walk around Bangkok, especially if you look foreign, you will constantly be offered tuk tuk rides.  A tuk tuk is an auto rickshaw. It’s a three-wheeled vehicle that has a roof but no proper doors. It is basically used like a mini taxi. Unlike a taxi, there is no set fare, so you might get a cheaper ride on a tuk tuk, but you might not. Also, there is no air-conditioning on a tuk tuk, which wasn’t so great in the Bangkok heat. Still, it’s something that I would recommend trying once.
