  1. may i know how many person you take by the tut-tut car, cause i see for your blog u say thai baht 500-700, this price it's for 1 person or 1 by 1 car?

  2. Esther ong: it's one car..that time we about 6 or 7 peoples. hope this help..

  3. if we go for hari raya time (malaysia), is the floating market still available??

  4. @cdr msk

    i can't confirm...but from what i googled someone went on raya ke-5 last years..2012

  5. Hi, is it must be traveled by group to hire tut tut? How about 2 person only? And we pay after return to Hatyai?

  6. no, basically it's charge per trip per tut-tut so it doesn't matter how many of you, as long as all can fit in that tut-tut. Hope this help.
