Malacca Trishaws

The trishaws in Malacca are loud, from a visually as well as aurally. They are over decorated and often inflict pain to the passenger's ear with loud music of the driver's choice. But this post is actually not to malign them, but rather to sing their praise.

We have visited Malacca before, walking around in the heat (which for some reason always seems to be more oppressive in Malacca than Singapore) and always said no to the Trishaw drivers offering to ferry us around for a fee.

Perhaps it was the memories of the cheats that call themselves Tuk Tuk drivers in Thailand, but we never gave the poor Trishaw drivers their due. What I found however was a very pleasant surprise.

The Trishaw drivers in Malacca are polite, honest and they are perfect for those quick trips that are FAR TO HOT to walk. The rate is between 10-20 Ringgit for just about anywhere in town (more often 10RM). Trust me, these were some of the most welcome and enjoyable rides around Malacca. Well worth the fee and the kids (and Jeff) loved them. Oh and by the way, while you can't tone down the decorative elements of the Trishaw, you can have them turn off the music.
