  • By Tuk Tuk: There’s many good feedbacks about this type of vehicle in Thailand such as cheaper than taxi, warm-hearted drivers … However, this should not be recommended for elders since most of Tuk Tuk in Thailand drives very fast that might cause the heart-attacks or fright to them.

This might cost you the amount from 125bath/day for the semi-automatic motorbikes and 150bath/day for the automatic scooters. However, beware the traffic in Thailand and don’t forget to wear the helmets whenever driving in order to avoid the accidents that might happen.
