It’s true— once you tried another country’s transportation system, you won’t ever commute in the Philippines the same way again. Rush hour? No worries, you’ll still get a seat. Toilet call? Sure, there’s a toilet on train. I can take the longest train ride of my life and never feel burnt out. 📸 ernest_wilde on Instagram

"Little Patricia wants to ride, something she has never tried. Who could it be by her side? Where TUK be, where could she be? She said -- My mom will be my guide, as we try tuk-tuk -- The Thailand's pride." Every country has their own identification. Aside from flags and national emblems, culture speaks for a country's identity. This includes history, religion, food staples -- and even, transportation. As for Thailand, the country is known for "tuk-tuks". This is one of the main source of transportation in Thailand -- a three-wheeled vehicle that can ride you around the city's most magical places. I remember when I watched Miss Universe 2015, Miss Thailand conceptualized her national costume in line with Thailand's Tuktuk. Since then, it became one of my travel goals -- to ride a Tuktuk. Although almost similar to the "tricycle" that we have in the Philippines, I guess travelling with tuktuk in Bangkok might just give me a different vibe. That's why despite the alleged overcharging rates, I believe that tuktuk is not completely a bad news to take. Knowing that good haggling can be my way out and with all the precautionary measures I've learned about tuktuks, I still want TUK experience it with my mom. She taught me to always see the good in every people. Thereupon, even if some tourists may say that few drivers may just fool me out of commission, WE SHOULD JUST BE KEEN AND CRITICAL TOURISTS. In that way, nothing would not make me check off my bucketlist of riding a tuktuk. In Thailand, I TRUST.
