Songthaew, Taxi, and Tuk-Tuk Travel

Most areas of the south have a variety of motorized taxi services from samlors to tuk-tuks to songthaews. Some "metered" taxis can be found in most of the region now, but they usually don’t run their meters, preferring to set a price at the start of the trip. So if you do take one of these make sure to ask for the meter to be on, as it will often be much cheaper.
