A taxi driver in Thailand has decided to install a karaoke system in his car.
Vichian Simma, a 23-year-old from north-eastern Buriram, created the "karaoke taxi" because of his love of music, the Bangkok Post reported on Monday.
"It was really quiet and lonely in the rented cab, so I decided
to take out a loan and buy my own," he told the newspaper.
With his newly-installed karaoke equipment, Mr Vichian is now earning up to 20,000 baht (470 dollars) a month, and gaining high levels of customer approval.
"Some can't get enough, especially if they've just left a bar," the paper reported him as saying.
"Others tell me to drive around for a bit just so they can sing."
Sometimes Mr Vichian sings along with his passengers.
"Well, I've got work to do here."
Passengers pay only the normal fare for their journey, although Mr Vichian told the Bangkok Post that his tips had risen dramatically since the karaoke machine was installed.
