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.

I forgot to mention that I took this picture from a moving bus as we were headed to the airport.

These transports are great. They are cheap, comfortable, and the wind goes through the back when driving and cools off the passengers when it is hot.

David Jr said...

Ted, you're absolutely spot on! Love it when they drive fast.

I love how they pimp their Tuk-Tuks in Krabi... When I went there I took a couple pictures of curious Tuk-Tuks... even some with big boom boxes!

Norbert, haha I saw the same things and have pics too. Thought I'd be humble and post a more acceptable one. In my actual post, I will feature them.

Cath, erm... Halong, if you can, do the 2D/1N cruise. Other than that, it's Sapa or Hanoi city. Email me if possible or facebook message me.

After so many years, I still haven't got the guts to ask them to do the wheelie yet. Will try one day.

David Jr said...

Wilson, I doubt they will even try. Look at the skirting...
