In Thailand, no visit is complete without a tuk-tuk ride. It’s like going to Venice and not riding a gondola.
Tuk-tuks are motorized rickshaws, three-wheelers mainly found in South-East Asia. Wandering in the streets of Bangkok or any major city, you will ALWAYS bump into someone offering you a tuk-tuk ride or a tour of the city for a ridiculously cheap price.
Most of the time in touristy places, it’s best to avoid these tours as the driver will just take you to a very quick tour and then head to the commercial streets where you will be tempted to buy products you probably don’t need (they get a commission of course).
But tuk-tuks are also a fast and easy way to get around town. It’s not the cheapest mode of transport but it surely is the fastest way, just don’t forget to haggle over the price before you get in.
When shooting Street Photography, be patient. Choose a corner and make yourself comfortable and watch people go by and scenes change at every moment. Keep your camera ready to snap at every occasion. The longer you stay somewhere, the more people will get used to you and ignore you after a while. This leads to more natural and candid photos for you!
