By Tuk-Tuk 

Tuk-tuks, those three-wheeled open-air vehicles (samlor) you see cruising the streets, are a Bangkok transportation innovation that can take two passengers (three or four at a squeeze). Tuk-tuks offer an interesting way of seeing the city, but are best for shorter trips during off-peak hours. You have to agree the fare before proceeding. It should cost less than the price of a comparable journey by metered taxi. In the rainy season, riding in a tuk-tuk can be dangerous as well as wet. You have been warned.
