What the Tuk?

The Tuk Tuk is part-motorbike, part-rickshaw and totally Thailand.  Your first time sitting in the back, weaving through traffic in the smoggy, smelly streets of Bangkok, is equal parts terrifying and exhilarating.

The only people taking Tuk-tuks in Bangkok seem to be tourists – and the trips are priced accordingly: Tuk-tuks are not as cheap as regular taxis but they’re not that expensive either and you have to try it.

Here I am on my last tuk tuk ride of my holiday looking way more relaxed than I was on my first.
