Tuk Tuk

Also known as Samlors in Thai, these are three-wheeled taxis without a meter. Fares must be negotiated beforehand. They are sometimes a little cheaper than taxi’s but are only suitable for short trips. Many people will be put off by the traffic fumes (especially if you stop next to a bus or a truck) but they are great fun and worth a trip.

 

Motorbike Taxi

In Thailand they have many Thai’s providing a Taxi service on a motorbike or moped or scooter. This service is usually very cheap but most important is very quick. They are able to weave in and out of traffic and will get you to your destination much quicker than any Taxi or Tuk Tuk. But do no use them if you are nervous it will frighten the living day lights of you if you are not use to travelling by this method. I  use them all the time, but I too admit sometimes they are a bit chance takers, and I am a motorcyclist. Many Thai’s use this method of getting about locally.

 

Subaru  (see picture page 5)

These are small Honda / Suzuki pickups that seats have been added to in the rear. The seats are meant for 4 people but I have seen them carrying 6 inside 3 or 4 hanging on for dear life on the rear bodywork and 2 inside the drivers cab. They are  very cheap, but are normally used locally in villages or street routes in towns. Larger versions of them

(called Songtaw  see picture page 12 ) do travel farther. But these are usually large trucks built to take about 20/25 people in relative safety but again I have seen these overloaded and packed so full of people it can never be considered safe. But then this is Thailand.
