The sprawling open windows on both sides of the tuk-tuk would allow you to take a peek at the typical village sights and sounds unlike in a sealed air conditioned cab.
Explore the village of Kerala. A small three-wheeled 3-seater taxi painted black and yellow – that is auto rickshaw. Loads of fun, this three wheeled wonder is more famous by its pet name of tuk tuk and is a rage among tourists. It is cheaper than taxi and is a good option to explore the Kerala villages at your own pace. Nonetheless, it could get a bit noisy at times. It is best to negotiate a mutually agreeable fare before starting off.
Simple and swift, these breezy vehicles are best to travel through the narrow village roads. Decked up in floral garlands and the pictures of an array of gods and goddesses every auto oozes an innate local flavour.
The sprawling open windows on both sides would allow you to take a peek at the typical village sights and sounds unlike in a sealed air conditioned cab. The driver veers and turns the vehicle with ease as village men sitting on the edges pass a curious glance and kids in school uniforms pose delightedly for tourists.
Most of the auto drivers would love to double up as travel guides as they mouth out the peculiarities of the village market and the temples as the vehicle winds its way further down the village roads. By the end of your journey you would have fallen head over heels for the charm of this converted scooter. Built to carry two to three people, it is a convenient method for traveling over a short distance that too at a small fee.
