Nothing is more authentic than driving through Sri Lanka in a Tuk Tuk. Also known as Auto Rickshaws, Trishaws or Three-Wheelers (depending on where you are), you may think that the notoriously little Tuk Tuks are only available to you as a passenger, taxi style, whilst trying to get around in Sri Lanka. However you are actually able to rent one of those little vehicles and use it as your main source of transportation to get around in Sri Lanka.
