Red Tuk Tuk in Krabi, Thailand - Picture of the week

Red Tuk Tuk in Krabi, Thailand is my picture of the week. These little modified vans known as 'Songthaew or Song Tiau' serve as one of the main transportation around Southern Thailand. Usually they are simple vehicles but some of the locals have taken the initiative to modify them. Complete with spoilers and skirting, some of them even come with an impressive sound system and flashing neon lights.

One of these mini Songthaews (สองแถว) can easily sit four to eight passengers and prices are about 20-30 Baht per person depending on the distance. If you happen to visit Thailand, you will come across these little taxi vans and you should at least try one of them for the experience of sitting in a Tuk Tuk.
