"Tuks Tuks" Tuk-tuks Tip by touraco

Tuk-tuks, Bangkok: 38 reviews and 20 photos

Tuks Tuks are a simple way of transportation around bangkok considering the traffic jams that occur quite frequently in bangkok.

However, do take note that some of the tuks tuks driver will make a detour to some jewellery/gem shops along the way so that they can earn a voucher for free gas.

Unique Suggestions: If you feel that it's ok to make a detour just so that driver can have the free voucher, just go into the shop, walk around and exit. Do not let them persuade you into buying anything.

And always ensure you agreed on the cost before getting on the tuk tuk.

Fun Alternatives: The BTS goes through major tourist attractions so you can always take the BTS instead
