  rot kop

 

Thailand

A rot kop in Ayutthaya. It has the characteristics of both a saamloh and a songthaew, that is to say three wheels and two benches fitted lengthwise, respectively.

 

The name derives from the front view of the vehicle, which resembles the head of a frog, called kop in Thai. This is even more so in older versions that have round headlights.
