Originally used in tropical, often developing countries, the tuk tuk is convenient for urban transportation. Known in many different ways – rickshaw being perhaps the most famous – the motorized vehicles earned the nickname due to the sound they make while running. Now rapidly expanding into destinations worldwide, these cute vehicles are tourism’s next big thing.
