Tuk Tuk Ride In Bangkok

 
                    
 
*Backdated post*
 
 
When we were on a holiday in Bangkok, the boy was so tempted to ride on a tuk tuk and would bug me whenever he saw them on the street.  Frankly speaking, I do not fancy riding on a tuk tuk as we had unpleasant experience before years ago.  It was late at night and I was with the hubs standing in front of a shopping mall.  The hotel where we stayed was 15 minutes' walk away but we were too tired to walk we decided to hail a cab.  No vacant cabs was insight and this tuk tuk driver approached us and we showed him our hotel card with the address printed on it.  I negotiated with him on the fare and he suddenly got mad scolding us and throwing our card out to the street!  I picked up the card on the street and ignored him, refusing to mess with this crazy man, probably high on drugs or alcohol on a foreign land!  We took another tuk tuk and this one had no problems agreeing on the fare.
 
The boy was so eager to ride on one that he squeezed himself into a mock tuk tuk when he spotted one at Tesco Lotus (top right pic) with his leg sticking out. LOL...  Another pic at the bottom left was taken in Siam Ocean World situated at Siam Paragon Mall and this one was much larger, can fit in the whole him. :)  Seeing his determination to ride on one, we went on one eventually, from Tesco Lotus, Rama 1 Road to Platinum Fashion Mall. A pleasant ride it was and the boy was thrilled and said he felt like taking a ride in a F1 racing car!

You went to Bangkok for a holiday? My friend also had a very bad experience with Tuk Tuk in Bangkok. The tuk tuk collided and they were thrown out. Her son is now blind in one eye and her leg was broken :(

I was there a long long time ago. They certainly look nicer now and safer too - the ones I took, I had to hang on to dear life. Traffic was horrible in Bangkok then - may times worse than KL today, dunno now.

Some of the Tuk Tuk really can drive as fast as F1 car and make us sway like ride on roller coaster.

oh tell me about it. Ashley was asking for it and we eventually gave in and rode in one for about 15 minutes. Terrifying 15 minutes for me but Ashley and hubs were enjoying it.
