Chiang Mai on Three Wheels

Chiang Mai on Three Wheels organises tours by samlor (bicycle taxi) in Chiang Mai. Chiang Mai on Three Wheels is a not for profit project of Green Trails.

Chiang Mai on Three Wheels offers a number of Chiang Mai tours by samlor. The samlor is a bicycle taxi. In Thai language samlor literally means three wheels. Before the age of the automobile there used to be hundreds of samlors in Chiang Mai. Now there are less than 70. Chiang Mai on Three Wheels considers the samlor a Chiang Mai heritage and aims to preserve the samlor as a means of transportatio

Tha Chalom is a historic community on the Tha Chin River, about 55km southwest of Bangkok. Tourists who travel by train from Bangkok to Maeklong to visit the famous train market pass through this community. You have to take the ferry from Mahachai to Tha Chalom to catch the train from Ban Laem Railway Station to the Maeklong Railway Market.
I recommend everyone to spend some time in Tha Chalom. The village has a very interesting visitor center with excellent information about the history of this Chinese settlement.
The community also has preserved the tradition of the samlor. It is a perfect example of how tourism can help keep the samlors on the road.
The Maeklong railway market was inundated by tourists and rather disappointing. I will certainly go back to Tha Chalom and spend more time there.

We have revised the itinerary of our Samlor evening tour. We will now start at Wat Phra Singh at 1800 and end the tour at the Night Bazar at around 2100. We will visit Wat Phra Singh, Wat Chedi Luang, the Chiang Mai Gate, and Warorot Markets. Enjoy the quiet back streets of Chiang Mai in the early evening.
Please note that we don’t operate this tour on a Sunday due to the Walking Street in the Old City.

As far as I know, the samlor was introduced to Chiang Mai in the 1930s. In the picture, we see on the right the type of samlor that is still in use, with the passenger sitting behind the driver. We also a see a samlor with a sidecar. This type is called the samlor "theep phuang khang" (สามล้อถีปพวงข้าง). I have never seen it in Chiang Mai. I found an old one recently on display at the Jinnaluck Sa Paper place in Mae Sai district.

I suppose they took the samlors to Sankamphaeng on that day. Pendleton took a picture of the prince and a man called Chakrtong traveling in samlors on the old tree-lined Sankamphaeng road. The old pictures are from the photo collection of Robert Larimore Pendleton.

Yesterday I made a tour by samlor in Lamphun, something I wanted to do for a long time. Lamphun is the perfect place for a samlor tour because there is not much traffic. There are about 30 samlors still on the streets of Lamphun. Most of them are parked at the hospital but I found five of them at the Nong Dok market, the ‘Kad Luang of Lamphun’.
There I met driver Annej. He is 69 years old and has been riding his samlor since he was 20. He told me that there were at least 300 samlors in Lamphun when he started almost 50 years ago. He took me on a ride along the old moat to Wat Hariphunchai and back to the market. We had a great time. If you visit Lamphun, please make a trip by samlor. You will enjoy it and support the drivers. They deserve support. Contact us for a customized tour.

Samlors are still on the streets of Nonthaburi. I have heard that their license will not be renewed. That really is a pity.

Samlors (cyclos) in Hanoi are having lots of business from tourists. Let's hope we can achieve that in the future in Chiang Mai as well.

Honoring Lung Nan Narin. Chiang Mai’s oldest samlor driver passed away on June 14. Lung Nan Narin was 100 years and 5 months old. He rode the samlor since World War Two. I met him three years ago at the monthly samlor meeting at Wat Upakud. I made a couple of pictures of him. Today I went to Wat Don Chai in Pa Daed to pay respect. What an amazing man. A real legend.

A staggering 54% of all public transportation vehicles in San Carlos City, Negros Occidental, Philippines, are pedicabs or, as we know them, samlors. It was such a pleasure to see so many of these fine vehicles on the streets of San Carlos.

San Carlos City on Negros Occidental is a paradise for samlor aficionados. The city has about 1500 samlors plying the streets. They are also very pretty.

I found these pictures on different FB pages. They didn’t mention who made the picture but they were taken by the same person only seconds apart. Location is the intersection on Yaowarat Road, Bangkok, where the office of the Sri Sam Ang Company was located. The first picture was dated 1948, the other 1957…..the first picture was actually taken seconds after the second. Now I have to find out which year it was!

Both great shots.
