Photographer's Note

Tuk Tuk - a man powered 2 seater tri-cycle with a hood to protect the passengers from the sun and may be rain..
There is a tiny headlamp on the front aswell.
Very commonly used in China, Malaysia and India although in India it is known as the 'rickshaw',
On a daily basis in these places you are bound to see plenty of these tuk tuks, it provides self-employment to many poor people, at times these people can be really friendly and amusing, like in Thailand they'll try and sell any and everything to the tourists...

hahaha its funny nevertheless when you are eager to explore the place and not want something that Las Vegas is abundant is providing...lol :P
the tuk tuk puller takes you everywhere but where you actually wanna visit :P
If you do not make it clear to him, he will try and sell and make money from where ever he can,
will try and sell you the services of women : you disagree then men ... lol
disagree with that option... well theres always massage, if that dont impress you there is always the local shopping... where these guys have tie-ups for a commission of the sale.. and the conversation continues...
Its fun at times and can get really annoying when you dont have all that time,
although its an experience by its self seeing the guy trying to make a survival....

Hope you dont loose your cool when you communicate with these people, they may just know a few broken english lines, but at times they can tell you things that no tour guide will.

Cheers and happy touring...
