Discover the most local ways of transportation

One of the unique opportunities to feel the real Bangkok way of life is a Bangkok tuktuk tour, and Amazing Adventure invites you to try this mode of local transportation and to feel yourself a true Bangkokian – at least for a couple of hours.

Usually, travelers decide what to see in Bangkok, make lists of the most popular tourist attractions and activities (such as treasure hunt), but in Thailand a traveler should decide not only what he wants to see but also how he wants to see it, and Thailand tuktuk tour is one of the must-do options in this country, especially if you plan to visit Bangkok.

Tuktuk is a tricycle that has a small cabin for maximum two passengers; it is a modernized version of rickshaws that were popular all across Asia in the past. Now it is considered as one of traditional Thai types of transportation; tuktuks have special license plates, the overall number of tuktuks is strictly limited in Bangkok as well as in Thailand, and tuktuk business is often inherited in one family from older generation to the younger one.

Thai people, especially elders, like to use tuktuks on daily basis – for example, they go to the market by bus or by song teaw, and go back with many purchases by tuktuk; it is more affordable that taking a taxi (and often is quicker – just because a tuktuk is smaller than a car and can move a bit faster in traditional Bangkok traffic jams). Because tuktuks are quicker, you can often see not only elders but also youngsters who use tuktuks when they are in a hurry and want to be on time on a team building event, or just take part in scavenger hunt.

 

So, if you want to make your Bangkok trip a real adventure tour, you should try tuktuk mode of transportation. It does not matter where you are going – your destination point can be a famous tourist attraction, a team building activity, or just another street café during your food tour. In any case, travelling by tuktuk will give you pure feeling of Bangkok traditional life, and it will be a really amazing race along the streets of Venice of the East!
