Ice Cream Tuk-Tuk Fare For The Motherflippin’ Win!

CAPE TOWN, South Africa: Wednesday 12 December 2012, during the launch of the Nestle King Cone Tuk Tuk service during summer.
Photo by Roger SedresUp until February this year I didn’t have a clue what a tuk-tuk even was. Then we went to Thailand and rode a few and I distinctly remember thinking “SA would be a much radder country if we had a few of these…”

And now we do! And what’s even better news is that until February, if you buy a King Cone and flag down a King Cone tuk-tuk, you get to ride around Cape Town for free, eating ice cream!

I mean, that’s pretty flippin’ radass when you think about it. As individual experiences, riding in a tuk-tuk and eating ice cream both rate right up there in terms of fun things to do in summer. Now imagine doing those two things AT THE SAME TIME! Genius!

You can catch a tuk-tuk by calling 083 641 5453, tweeting @Tuksicpt or joining the BBM group (2171028A). Without a King Cone, it will cost you R40 to get around and the tuk-tuks travel along the following routes:

  • City Bowl
  • Sea Point
  • Green Point
  • Camps Bay
  • Bakoven
  • Hout Bay (ad hoc)

That’s not all. Here’s another list of bullet points that gives you the times. Pass the mustard. I’m on a roll.

  • Mon – Tues (08h30 – 17h30)
  • Wed – Sat (08h30 – 01h00)
  • Sun (08h30 – 23h00)

Pretty schweet ne?

 

 

Tuk-tuks only take two people at a time though which makes for a very romantic experience. Wind blowing through your hair, beautiful Cape Town in summer whizzing by, happy people smiling and waving, I mean DAYUM! You’d be an idiot NOT to take one.

In fact, I’m pretty sure I’m going to take one next week WHILE I’M ON HOLIDAY BECAUSE AT THE END OF TODAY I GO ON HOLIDAY BECAUSE HOLIDAYS ARE AWESOME AND I’MSOFLIPPINEXCITEDICANHARDLY SITSTILLYAAAAAAAAAAAY!

Phew! Anyway.

Buy a King Cone. Ride a tuk-tuk.

The end.
