  Tuk Tuk

Tuk-Tuks are the best way to get around short distances, or when you are lost. You should never pay more than 40 Baht for a single trip. Some tuk-tuk will rent themselves out to you for the day, selling you on the fact that they will not make you pay until the end of the ride, on an agreed upon price. Basically, you tell them all the place you want to go, and they will bring you and then wait for you as you tour the sites, and if the happen to leave (which they won't) then you don't pay.

Only get in tuk-tuk's with a yellow license plate, as these are the ones that are registered. Not that it matters much...
