Tuk-tuks are a popular mode of transport in Thailand, especially in urban areas. They are three-wheeled motorized vehicles that can be hailed on the street for short trips.
A motorbike is a convenient and cheap way to get around the city or reach the outlying sights. There is an abundance of near indistinguishable rental companies in the city, though most guesthouses can arrange rentals as well.
