Trishaw

Typical tourist trishaw in Malacca - adorned with lots of plastic flowers! What a riot of colours! Enough colours to make even a blind man confused! Almost all trishaws are decked with such colours here. Trishaws are a dying breed, available only in smaller towns or as a novelty in the States, also as a tourist attraction. I suppose existing trishaw peddlers have to resort to this in order to survive as most locals do not travel this way anymore with the ever increasing automobile traffic on the road.

I like your picture, but not the tourist place
I prefer the true life

photo-effe : Oh! I should have mentioned that almost all trishaws in Malacca are like this. I will put an extra note. Thanks.
