Tuk-Tuk in Phuket , warning !!

For everyone interested to use tuk-Tuk (local suzuki cab transportation) I advice to read the article of Phuket Gazette, about it.

What a shame local administration has allowed it to develop to this!

This new govenor in phuket has a real chance now to do something about these bloody thugs, but doubt we will see it.

I for one will never use a tuk tuk, and cannot understand why anybody does!

A more up to date post from Phuket gazette with comments and opinions from yesterday and today


Songthaew drivers in Jomtien and pattaya, Cha Am and Hua Hin who charge 10 baht per person and young kids go free make 'plenty' of profit because they are almost never sitting around doing nothing, they run like a bus, pick up and drop off all along the way and those 10 Baht's sure mount up.

It works fine elsewhere
