Bangkok's tuk-tuk

is one of Thailand's endearing symbols and a home-grown product that developed from the samlors and rickshaws of yesteryear. A wealthy Chinese resident probably brought the very first rickshaw to Bangkok in 1871. The innovation quickly caught on and became so popular that by 1901 the government was forced to limit the numbers of rickshaws in the interests of public safety. The samlor-a bicycle powered pedicab, later took over from the rickshaw but this too was outlawed in Bangkok in the late 1950s as being a traffic hazard. Samlors are still very common in many provinces.

The motorized tuk-tuk brought the solution to Bangkok's transport need around 1960. Safe, stable and yet open, allowing a free passage of air, the tuk-tuk has become
a symbol of Bangkok. The modern-day tuk-tuks are environment-friendly, running on 4-stroke, 250 cc LPG or CNG engines. They are designed to seat up to three passengers with additional space for baggage, but very often many more than this will squeeze into the back. Manufactured in Thailand, tuk-tuks are now exported to many countries worldwide.
