“Samlor Riders” Photographs

These samlor (“three wheels”) riders seem to spend most of their time waiting. They do get customers occasionally, particularly the elderly generation, but even with their comparatively cheap prices most people prefer the speed of motorised transport. The typical earnings of a samlor rider must be a poor return for the effort and perhaps the days of it as a viable trade in Chiang Mai are numbered.
