The Strange Trishaws of Malacca, Malaysia

By on June 13, 2015 in Malaysia

One thing that I found very odd in Malacca, and something that I personally thought detracted from the town were all the odd bikes around. I found them to be almost tasteless, and I couldn’t really understand their point. They didn’t seem to fit in with the town.

My guess, and this is just a guess, is that they started off as just standard Trishaws, and someone found that more tourists used their Trishaws when they added a little bit of decoration, and then some sort of weird evolution tyoe event occurred and the bikes became more and more elaborate.

In the past, before they became more decorated, I may have used them to get round town. I certainly wouldn’t now.

The bikes may look garish during the day, but at night they reach a whole new level!
