In Thailand, no visit is complete without a tuk-tuk ride.
Tuk-tuks are motorized rickshaws, three-wheelers mainly found in South-East Asia. While walking in the streets of Bangkok (or anywhere else), you will ALWAYS bump into someone offering you a tuk-tuk ride or a tour of the city for a ridiculous price. Most of the time in touristic places, it is best to avoid these tours as the driver will just take you to commercial streets where you will be tempted to buy products you don't need (they get commission...).
But tuk-tuks are also a fast and easy way to get around town, if you are not afraid for your Life that is!
So.... tuk-tuk? tuk-tuk? 10 baht!

Looks like you had a fun ride! They also have it in India and Phils as well but a bit smaller i guess. :)
