Tuk Tuk Thai

The History Of Tuk Tuk in Thailand
The vehicles known as Tuk-Tuk originated in Japan by Daihatsu and it was Thailand who subsequently went into production with these vehicles many years later.Thailand built Tuk-Tuks cost between 95'000 Baht and 150'000 Baht. As far as we know, there are about five to six manufacturers of Tuk Tuks in Thailand.

The original Thai Tuk Tuk is found in many places in Thailand, mostly operating as an open air taxi. Named for the sound made by their small-capacity, two-cycle engines, Tuk Tuks Thai are often found in tourist areas, around markets, or cruising the streets for fares. It is common to see 4 or 5 people in one Tuk Tuk, such as students heading home from school, or a single person riding a Tuk Tuk Thai full of boxes and bags being taken home from the market.Visitors to Thailand are usually very interested and curious about the Tuk Tuk, a locally made and designed three-wheeled vehicle. Tourists are often seen getting their picture taken with the open-air vehicle, and heard swapping tales of their experiences with the charming little machine.

Tuk Tuks were invented in Thailand over 50 years ago, evolving as a motorized relative of the rickshaw. The Tuk Tuk Thai was given its name from the rather rough sound of the early models. The single stroke motor powering the first three-wheelers had a distinctive hum when operating, and the "tuk-tuk-tuk-tuk-tuk" sound became a familiar sound to many in need of quick and convenient transportation in Bangkok. The Tuk Tuk Thai has improved its technology and quality over the years, while emerging as one of Thailand's most recognizable and identifiable symbols.

While Tuk Tuks are most commonly used for transporting passengers, many industrial uses for the vehicle have been initiated with dramatic changes incorporated into new designs and models. The relatively small size of the Tuk Tuk finds the vehicle navigating small alleys on delivery routes, and scooting around narrow factories taking advantage of its agility and slight turning radius.

Since the beginning, They can be modified to have automatic gears, doors, safety belts, air-conditioning, and much more depending on what the customer current models, powered by a 550 CC Japanese made engine, are able to carry a payload of 1000 kilograms. Customers have used Tuk-Tuks for hauling goods in factories, distributing goods and products in regions that have extremely narrow roads, and transporting guests around resort properties

Muay Thai

Muay Thai (ThaiBoxing)
Experience Thailand's national sport, Muay Thai. Also known as, "The Art of the Eight Limbs" this is the Thai form of hard martial art. It is often referred to as "The Science of Eight Limbs" as the hands, elbows, knees and shins are all used extensively in this art. Therefore, a Muay Thai fighter may execute strikes using "eight points of contact" as opposed to "two points of contact" in western boxing. Those points of contact, being the two fists used in combat.
Muay Thai has a long standing and fascinating history in Thailand. The Thai army also use a modified version of Muay Thai, called Lerdrit. Traditional Muay Thai practiced today, incorporates kicks and punches - in a ring - with gloves similar to those used in western boxing bouts.

Muay Thai is an extremely popular spectator sport in Thailand. It is also a world renown martial art sport. The origin of Muay Thai can be traced back to it's ancestor Muay Boran. This translates to "Ancient Boxing". Muay Boran, was a form of unarmed combat, employed by Siamese soldiers. This was used in conjunction with Krabi Krabong, a weapon based style of combat.
The practice of Muay Thai was over time, upheld by Buddhist monks, who were the keepers and teachers of all arts - which were both practical and spiritual. Every Thai man is encouraged to live and follow the practices of the Buddhist monks at least once during their life time. This is a major factor in why Muay Thai grew in popularity among the common people.

Muay Thai continues to be a practical fighting technique for warfare. It has thrived and grown as a sport, throughout Thailand and the world. The entertainment it brings to spectators, ensures that it is an integral part of local festivals and celebrations. It has also long been entertainment for Kings of Thailand.
When you visit Phuket and Thailand, ensure that you experience the excitement and drama of a live Muay Thai fight. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to view a cultural phenomenon. You will also observe the pre-fight Wai Khru ritual. This is based on the sabre dance of Krabi Krabong. This is a traditional way in which respect is shown to the teachers and trainers. Historically, the Wai Khru was performed, when fighting in the presence of the King, as a way of apologising for the brutality in the fighting.

The fighter will first circle the ring 3 times before kneeling and bowing 3 times as a sign of respect to God and Man. He will also bow to Buddha, in order to ask for protection for himself and his opponent. He will also ask for an honourable fight.

The fighter will then perform the Ram Muay, which is simple movements designed to demonstrate their control and style. Each of the fighters will perform the Ram Muay on each side of the ring, to demonstrate their prowess to the audience. The Ram Muay, is a very personal ritual. It may range from being very simple to very complex. The style provides an insight into who trained the fighter and where they originate from.

If you would like to experience a live Muay Thai fight, there are regular bouts in both Phuket Town and Patong. If you would like to book tickets or would like more information, please contact us. We can provide any details you may require.

Phuket's Two Heroines
Phuket's Two Heroines
captain Light played a pivotal part in the most famous chapter in Phuket's history: the routing of the invading Burmese army in 1785. The Burmese had been repelled a year earlier but returned in a large fleet-which was spotted by the Captain. He lost no time in alerting the authorities in Phuket.

The island's governor had just passed away so the challenge of organising its defence was taken up by his widow, Kunying Jan. She and her sister Mook assembled what forces they could and, according to legend, disguised local women as male soldiers, thus making Phuket's. military manpower seem invincible. The Burmese eventually lost heart and left after a month's siege and as a result King Rama 1 awarded Kunying Jan with the royal title of 'Thao Thep Kasattri'.

Nowadays, one of Phuket's main thoroughfares is Thepkassatri Rd. It leads past a centrally located roundabout on which stand statues of Kunying Jan and Thao Sri Suntorn - Mook's royally bestowed title. 'Heroine's Monument', as it is known, plays host to many locals who wish to pay their respects to their illustrious ancestors
