    A lovely way to experience the many quaint streets of Melaka is by rickshaw.

    They were all cute and decorated with lovely flowers :o)

    We didn't do it this time as we wanted to walk, but definately next time!

    Taking a trishaw ride through Melaka seems to be the thing to do there at the moment.
    there are dozens of them offering this service and the price is fixed these days at 40 ringgitt for an hour so you should not get ripped off if you decide to take a ride.
    The trishaws in Melaka are really colorful with lot's of decorations and most of them has a sound system too and play music while you go with them.
    I think they add to the color of the streets of Melaka and you should give it a go if you don't feel like walking around town.

    You will see lots of trishaw drivers around Dutch Square, China Town and other central parts of Melaka. Some of them are interestingly decorated and some play loud music while you take the tour. For a change, try one of them.

    Rickshaw Trip along the historical site

    by harish_mikael Written Dec 16, 2007

    There are abundance of rickshaw man ready to take you to wheel around this town. For a simple US$5 you can hop onto these colourful (and flowery) rickshaw and see the sceneries of town for half an hour.

    Sometime rickshaw equipped with a blaring stereo but you can politely ask them to switch it off if you can't stand the sound tune of local songs.

    Singapore has got a fleet of these trishaws too, ferrying tourists around for a hefty price; but those in Malacca are so much more colourful and cute! Adorned with plenty of flowers and flags, these trishaws seem popular with the Caucasian tourists. I have no idea how much a ride would cost though.

    Riding a Trishaw

    Waiting for customers...ready for a ride?

    When visiting the Banda Hilir, you may be offered to have a trishaw ride. If you never had this ride before, I recommend that you take the offer. It will be a fun and joy ride. These trishaws here are all being 'make-up' with flowers, lights etc. They even sometimes plays loud music while taking visitors for a ride. Its fun, its really fun....

    Of Trishaws and a Palace

    Trishaw, Melacca Sultannate Palace

    Look out flowered-decked, song-blastin' trishaws the next time you're in Melaka. I wasn't able to tear my eyes away from these boys who seemed to have a hell of a gd time on one. Behind them is the Wooden Replica of Malacca Sultanate Palace The design is based on the description of the palace from the 'Malay Annals'. The palace houses the Malacca Cultural Museum.
    Pal, Muddybok is more an expert in this field, so click here to see his rich description of the Melakan history and his excellent guide to some 'hidden' places in town.

    The Maritime Portuguese Ship Museum

    Maritime Museum

    A visit to this Maritime museum is a must. It is one of those sails that found its way into the straits of Melaka in the 16th Century. It is said that this ship sank in the straits of Melaka, on it way to Portugal. Efforts to revive it was initiated by Malaysian Tourism and now it is a symbol of its colonial past. Inside the ship are exhibits of other foreign ship models,

    Rickshaw rides to see the town

    by sourbugger Updated Sep 11, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    i want to ride my bicycle

    Outside the church on the main square the rickshaw drivers ply for business. Their "Tour" consists of stopping off in Chinatown at the various temples and mosques, before heading past the Dutch ship and out to the Formosa area before returning to the church.

    It's obviously a very touristy thing to do, but if you are very short of time then it is novel way of "doing" the sights.

    If I remember rightly, we ended up agreeing on 30 Ringgit for the one hour ride (summer 2003).

    Try to avoid late afternoon as they are more interested in the tourists who arrive in those vast air-conditioned tour buses. I presume the tour companies book them out in advance.

    Chinatown is worth exploring later in more detail at your own pace.

    Our driver spoke reasonable english and even let me ride the contraption so I could carry him for a little while !

    plenty of trishaws to choose from...

    pick one rider that can give a good history of the place, plus have strong muscles to ride trishaws!

    negotiate prices beforehand... half tour vs full tour

    Take a ride down memory lane on a Trishaw. Be sure to check how much it cost first before embarking on these trishaw.

    The trishaw can be rented on hourly too.

    Hop into a Trishaw

    Under the hot sun, it was a breeze. To conserve energy:), for a basic city tour, it is worth the ride. It is also another experience in a foreign land.

    TRI SHAW

    Tri shaws are everywhere! You can't miss them, you'll hear them before you see them!!! The drivers(?) are very friendly and love playing loud music. One of those things you should do when in Malacca.

    Trishaw

    If you wish to tour the Melaka Town Centre, take a trishaw ride.

    We see bus loads of tourist were taking the trishaws around the square.

    Some trishaws are decorated with flashing lights.
