Map of tuk-tuks (songthaew) in Hua Hin

Which is correct: tuk-tuk or songthaew?

Let's start with terminology. Strictly speaking, a pickup truck converted into a small regular bus is a songthaew (literally meaning “two benches” in Thai). As for the tuk-tuk, this three-wheeled vehicle, also with two benches, is common in the Thai province, as well as in large cities as a taxi.

At the same time, even locals often call songthaew tuk-tuks. That is, speaking of tuk-tuks in this article, we mean songthaew.

Are there tuk tuks in Hua Hin

Not all Thai cities have tuk tuks (songthaew). Although Hua Hin is a small resort town stretched along the sea with virtually one main road, it was lucky – in this city there are tuk-tuks.

Since there is only one main road, there is only one tuk-tuk route. But since all the most visited places are along it, this songthaew route is enough.

Tuk-tuks are the most convenient transport (after a personal motorcycle) in Hua Hin, since taxi services in this city are rather underdeveloped.

In addition to the main route, there is also a route to Hua Hin Airport. Some tuk-tuks, after arriving at the Night Market, continue to the airport, in which case the cost of the trip is 20 baht.
