"Ox Cart Ride" Phuket Things to Do Tip by chatterley

Phuket Things to Do: 901 reviews and 2,157 photos


The last programme of our tour is the ox cart ride.....well, it's not too exciting, just a very short ride....and I should have opted for the elephant ride instead! Anyway, it is the first time we've taken a ride on an ox cart. These things are non-existent in modern day Singapore, though they used to be around...in the early days, ox carts were used to transport water to Chinatown. Hence, Chinatown is also known as Niu Che Shui or literally "Ox Cart Water" in Chinese.

For the elephant ride, I saw some tourists feeding bananas to the animals....seems a lot more fun! Nevermind, I'll try that when I visit Chiang Mai in the future.
