There was a tuk-tuk parked on the side of the road among the many regular cars. In Bangkok, it is not uncommon to see these three-wheeled cabs running around the city, competing with the regular cars in the crowded streets. This is a typical Bangkok scene.
As I approached a parked tuk-tuk, I saw a man sitting in the back seat. It was probably the driver of this tuk-tuk. He was sitting there with his hands folded behind his head, not even twitching. He was probably waiting for a customer to arrive, but he looked bored.
There were hardly any passersby on the sidewalks, and cars were driving past me on the road. I heard that an Uber-like ride-sharing service has started in Bangkok, run by a Singapore-based company called Grab, which bought Uber's Southeast Asian business. With the high smartphone penetration rate in Thailand, such services will probably become more and more common. As a result, the old-fashioned tuk-tuks may become obsolete.
