Trishaw or Beca rides in Malacca town

by Yin on July 28, 2011

Trishaws or becas can still be seen in Malacca town, but the trishaws now are tourist driven and beautifully decorated:

The cost of the ride is RM40 per hour- each trishaw can sit by 2 average weight adult with probably a child. And there is a clear signboard located near Jonkers street entrance and the clock tower that states clearly the rental rates. If there are complaints about being overcharged, it can be made to tel: 06-232 6411/ 39888 (sms). This is to ensure tourists do not have a bad experience due to lack of enforcement.

This trishaws are quite happening- some come fully equipped with sound systems and PA speakers so as the rider takes the customers around, you can hear music coming out from the trishaw. There was a Malay family and one trishaw played Malay songs (which I love to listen), and another one was blasting Michael Jackson’s songs (that week I went happened to be his death anniversary).

Above and below: The beca riders in action around Jonkers street.

This time, we did not ride on the beca. When I was a small girl, I have rode on a trishaw when our family visited Penang. Then years ago during my previous company’s teambuilding, we also rode on a trishaw. Well, sometimes I sort of feel sorry for the driver to ride the trishaw under the unforgiving hot sun.
