A Tuk Tuk, as it is known in Thailand is more commonly known as an Auto Rickshaw. However, there is one very significant difference between the two as the Tuk Tuk is a motorised vehicle.

The original Thai Tuk-Tuk is found in many places in Thailand, mostly operating as an open air taxi. Named for the sound made by their small-capacity, two-cycle engines, tuk-tuks are often found in tourist areas, around markets, or cruising the streets for fares.
