Tuk Tuk, Chinese style

The Chinese are not as famous for Tuk Tuks as Thailand, India or Indonesia, but they've got a few of their own as well. This one, in north eastern China is not nearly well enough insulated from the frigid cold wind of the winters in the region, yet it's typical of the three-wheeled taxis. Seats about 6. Sitting close keeps everyone warm.

 

Tuk Tuks are a dwindling species as people start affording cars. You won't see any of these in Beijing and there are fewer and fewer even in Bangkok where they're practically a national symbol.
