In Cambodia, there are many Tuk Tuk's driving along all the city centers. But they are not the same as in Chiang Mai and Bangkok, Thailand. They are much better.!
Why? They don't make noice, they don't make smoke, they don't smell bad and last but not least, they are more comfortable, the wheels are bigger and the suspention is better.
Why? They invented quite un other system to transport on short distances. The basis is a good mototcycle with an engin of about 125 cc. On the place of the passanger, they invented a support for the carrier of passengers; one large bank backwards and a smaller one in the front.
The result is a smooth going Tuk Tuk, silent motor, good confort, big wheels, and....the possibility of transporting not only one or two tourists, but all the members of a whole Cambodian family. I saw once three adults on the backseat, three on the frontseat, and four children in the middle... OK, they don't have the same wheight of an average Western...
