A ride in a three-wheeled tuk-tuk is an essential experience for visitors to Bangkok. One part rickshaw, one part motor trike, these iconic vehicles were imported from Japan after World War II and named for the puttering sound of their two-cylinder engines. In the early morning, you’ll see them transporting produce to markets around the city, but they are available for hire at all hours. Ride like a local: Negotiate the fare with the driver before your journey.
