The Tuk Tuk Club was the result of too many long flights, too much thinking / dreaming time and a few too many nights of far too many beers. Surely it’s possible to drive a Tuk Tuk around the mountains of Thailand we thought, everyone else seemed to think it wasn’t. A few months of navel gazing (planning!) later it turns out it is possible and in fact it’s hugely enjoyable and, even better, there are some awesome and very comfortable places to stay en route. And so ‘The Tuk Tuk’ Club was born. The ‘Club’ is run by people who have been delivering travel experiences in Asia and beyond for year and years and share a huge passion for Thailand, for doing something a ‘little bit’ exciting and helping others to experience and see what they’ve been lucky enough to see. We are also far too fond of a nice ice-cold beer at the end of a day’s adventure…

About The Tuk Tuk Club

The Tuk Tuk Club was the result of too many long flights, too much thinking / dreaming time and a few too many nights of far too many beers. Surely it’s possible to drive a Tuk Tuk around the mountains of Thailand we thought, everyone else seemed to think it wasn’t. A few months of navel gazing (planning!) later it turns out it is possible and in fact it’s hugely enjoyable and, even better, there are some awesome and very comfortable places to stay en route.

Driving a Tuk Tuk

Can I really drive a Tuk Tuk?

The simple answer is yes! If you can drive a manual (stickshift) car then you won’t have any problems driving a Tuk Tuk. It takes a little bit of practice to get used to things – that’s what our training sessions are for – but they’re pretty simple beasts and a lot of fun. Just don’t think you’re Lewis Hamilton and try to take corners too fast……

What happens if I don’t want to drive the Tuk Tuk?

Why wouldn’t you want to? But seriously, this is no problem at all. If you’re travelling with friends you can sit back and let them be your chauffer or if you’re travelling solo, the others in your Tuk Tuk are going to love you as they’ll get more driving time. Of course you can also take a seat with our lead Tuk Tuk which is driven by one of The Tuk Tuk Club team.

What happens if I don’t pass the Tuk Tuk driving training course?

If you drive at home we honestly don’t think you’ll have a problem with the training course BUT, if you do, don’t worry. Our team will work with you throughout the trip until you feel confident and pass any elements of the training course you struggled with (they’ll give you extra training when we arrive in new locations and keep working with you as long as you want). Once you’ve passed the course then you’re up and away and will be able to drive on the tour.

What sort of license do I need?

We ask that you make sure you have a driving license from your home country that allows you to drive a manual (stickshift) car. Even better would be for you to get an International Driving Permit before you travel. If you have any problems / questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions.

  • But I’ve got no sense of adventure?

    Everyone’s got a sense of adventure even if it’s hidden away. Why not join us and find your inner adventurer?

  • I’m travelling solo?

    Brilliant – what better way to make friends than on an adventure like this. You can share a Tuk Tuk and will ‘room’ with another solo traveller throughout the tour.

  • I want to travel with my family?

    A great idea. We can’t allow travellers younger than 7 years old (and of course they can’t drive) but you can ‘comfortably’ fit a family of 4 in your tuk tuk.

  • I want to travel with a friend?

    No problems and actually highly recommended. Rooms are shared on a twin basis and you can even ask to have a Tuk Tuk to yourself.

  • What if I don’t want to drive?

    That’s fine – no-one is forced to drive but of course we do need at least 1 driver per tuk tuk.

  • I don’t like Guest Houses / grotty accommodation?

    Nights 3 and 4 in the National Park are in ‘rustic’ accommodation – taking advantage of the stunning surroundings. All other accommodation is of a very high standard (4*) with air-conditioning and even swimming pools (nights 6,7,8 and 9).

  • What do I need to bring?

    A sense of humour, casual relaxed clothing and some spending money (around GBP 250-300 will be fine).

  • What sort of people is this trip for?

    Anyone who wants to see the ‘real’ Thailand from a different perspective and be amongst the first people to take part in this sort of travel in Thailand. NOTE: Other than nights 3 and 4 the accommodation is at a high 3* / 4 * level. Nights 3 and 4 are simple and ‘rustic’.

  • Can I do this?

    Yes - s long as you've got a sense of adventure and flexibility of course you can!
