What is a Tuk-Tuk and How do We Call it

Tuk-Tuk

The Tuk-Tuk, a
three-wheel vehicle, probably a motorized development of the traditional
hand-pulled rickshaw of the old times, is nowadays a common form of urban
transport in many developing countries in the world. They are mostly used in
big cities because they are best suited to narrows and crowded streets. Locally
it is used to transport everything from crops to animals everywhere: it is a
kind of donkey in modern times. In some countries, like Indonesia, they are
present only in big cities but in most other countries, like Sri Lanka or the
Philippines, they are seen also in small villages not only as taxies but also
for family use.  Yes, we have noticed that they are licensed to operate as
taxis and they are famously known as Tuk-Tuk by the tourists. Calling this way
for convenience can be also accepted but ignoring the fact that each country
has a proper name for it can’t be accepted anymore as it has become a big point
of tourist attraction.  Here for you a list of ten countries and the way
the locals use to call their Tuk-Tuk.
