I’d seen it before — this tricked out, pimped out tuk tuk — cruising along the moat road in Chiang Mai.

“I have to get a ride in that!” I said to my friend as it motored by.

Three weeks later, as I walk with people out of my favorite restaurant at Thae Pae Gate, I see it again.


We pile into the three-wheeled vehicle and head out, wind whipping the hair into our faces, music blaring.

Its got lights inside, lights outside and a driver behind the wheel who just knows his tuk tuk is the coolest tuk tuk in Chiang Mai, possibly Thailand.
