A common means of transport dating back to 1880, the Trishaw is a bicycle with a sidecar, powered entirely by the sturdy legs of the cyclist. Dubbed as the most ubiquitous of vehicles, this three-wheeler frst existed as a rickshaw and was manually pulled by a rider in the front of a seat attached to two big wheels.

This nostalgic eco-friendly mode of transportation takes many down memory lane, ensuring its passengers have a close-up experience of the city to encapsulate the heritage trail of Malaysia’s best street hawker food (which is extensively featured in MakanPlace’s authentic menu) and colourful street markets flled with delicious local delicacies, traditional handicraft and generally good bargains.

The Trishaw remains a strong icon in Malaysia’s rich cultural history.
