    I’ve been on a few – some of which scared me paired with rocky roads! I would definitely like to try the Suspension Railway in Germany and the Coco Taxi in Cuba!

    What a great idea for an article!! I haven’t heard of most of these, and I’m not sure I’m brave enough to try a lot of them haha. That hydrofoil looks so cool tough, and the feluccas in Egypt are beautiful!

    I like this post. Showing travelers what to expect on public transportation when they visit certain countries. I think the Suspension Railway in Germany is really cool, followed by Totora Boat from Peru. Tuk-Tuk or Rickshaw reminded me of Bajaj from Jakarta, Indonesia. I hated it because the drivers didn’t follow the traffic rules.

      Thanks, that was the point of the post. Yeah, the concept of the tuk-tuk (bajaj) usually appears in cities with a horrible traffic. The idea behind it was to make traffic more bearable by including these small versatile vehicles. However, most of the drivers don’t respect the rules, which makes the whole traffic situation even worse.

    Hi Daniel,
    Your blog post is quite fascinating to read. There are modes of transportation that I didn’t even know existed, but thanks to your blog for that. I really had fun reading your post.

    It’s always amazing the different mode of transportation. I recall in Hoi An, Vietnam a very popular way was by motorbike with sidecar, or the very popular bike rides!

      Thank you for your comment, Am, Yeah those motorbikes with a sidecar are a big thing in Hoi An and a few other Vietnamese cities.

    Hey, you missed padjak in the Philippines. lol. It’s quite similar to a tricycle only not motorized. That’s interesting to see different modes of transportation.

      Well, I thought of it but it was quite similar to the cyclo in Vietnam and I found the habal-habal much more impressive 😀 Thank you for the comment

    Love this article! We’ve done quite a few of these. Discovering different modes of transport is actually one of the most fascinating aspects of travel for us. Another one that we liked was the jeepneys in the Philippines, a little bit similar to Central America’s chicken buses.

    What a fun article. I was amazed how many people can fit into a tuk tuk in Thailand when I was there. The chicken buses are really unique, but very cramped inside. It is fun to see how people get around and this article did just that!

      If you wondered how many people can fit in a tuk-tuk in Thailand, you should see how many people can fit in a tuk-tuk in India 😀
