Trishaw Tours

Want to get around town in a unique fashion? Try exploring our historical and cultural districts like Chinatown and Little India in a trishaw.

The trishaw was a common means of transport back in the olden days in Singapore. The three-wheeled vehicle existed in its earlier form as the "Jinricksha" in Shanghai in 1880 and was manually pulled by a rider in front of a seat attached to two big wheels. The trishaw made its debut in Singapore in the 1940s, and although we do not see many trishaws on the roads now, it remains a strong icon of our rich cultural history.

The trishaw riders will take you along designated routes in Little India and Chinatown that promise the most interesting and enjoyable sights and sounds in these districts.

Each trishaw ride will last an average of 30 - 45 minutes. The price for a standard trishaw ride starts from S$25 per person. Special package rates may also be available for group tours. Please call the trishaw operator or your travel agent for information on the various packages and price range.

To get the most out of your trishaw experience, we would advise that you book the tour with one of the licensed trishaw operators. Please call the operator directly or go to their ticketing kiosks to confirm your booking. It is not advisable to engage the services of trishaw riders plying the roads.

If you have any feedback on the trishaw tours, please note down the trishaw's license plate number and the name of the trishaw rider. You may email your feedback to or fax to 65-6734 7226 (attention to Manager, Customer Information and Service Department).
