Yes, I have, many years ago in Hong Kong.
I would probably not do it again as I was petrified - the guy weaved in and out of that awful traffic with sometimes just inches to spare from the cars around us, and I thought "my days were numbered" so to speak!

It was not fun, added to which I felt so sorry for the driver having to pull us though he seemed to do it with no effort, but it must be difficult, and it is something I would not want to do again.
At least he got a big tip from us!
by Finy
No, but I would do it. You only live once.
No, I haven't. As I am not that keen on ever going to Asia, I probably will never get the opportunity. I'm sure I won't be missing much. Going on a rick shaw has new been high on my 'to do ' list
If I had been there, and had a chance, no way!
It is not something I would do.

I would rather walk...Don't like the thought of people pulling me around...
Yes, it feels wrong somehow. I was outnumbered.

Would love to... but alas not yet!
Having said that, I was thinking more of the auto rickshaws that you see around Asia.. with the motors.
(Tuk Tuks . . ?)
by Rice
Yup Rice.. Tuk Tuks lol.. I couldn't think of what they were called!...
No I haven't and I don't think I would like to

No, but I have in Canada, on Vancouver Island. Like Finy, I found it "uncomfortable" emotionally. Our guy was a delight and we gave him a big tip too. He sure was strong - there were three of us and Victoria is very steep in places.

Were your visiting Canada, or on a cruise? We've only been there twice on 2 x 14
day Alaskan cruises. A beautiful place. & how about the pink (?) hotel covered with vines?!

No, I've only been in tuk-tuks. I feel sorry for those boys who have to learn money that way, but a jobs a job, & I'm very sure they're glad to have the money, & I guess they're used to the heat, but the pollution would just be soon unhealthy for them. I hope they all wear masks these days.

We were visiting for a wedding and took the opportunity to drive around in a motor home. OMG!! The Rockies . . .! Fabulous. We spent nearly a month. What a beautiful place.
by Rice
Oh, that hotel is divine . . .so beautiful. We had lunch in the Parliament dining room . . . oh that was superb.
by Rice
Yes,Would never do it again as I felt so guilty letting this poor man pulling us for just a joy ride. There was no joy in the ride and very short ride as well. No amount of a tip could justify the trip.
Yes, had a rickshaw ride when in Malacca.
Really enjoyed it!
I,ve never been to Asia, there fore I've never been on a rickshaw.
No, and I wouldn't...I would feel terrible for the 'drivers'.
by Vee
I've never had a rickshaw ride in Asia or anywhere BUT I have been in a horse drawn carriage in Vienna.
that is slightly more "elegant"! I went to jail in Vienna!!! and NOT via an elegant ride.
by Finy
Not in Asia, but I got one in Brisbane once just for the fun of it. My daughter liked it a lot.
The Brisbane ones are different though, so maybe not technically a rickshaw. They pedal instead of pulling- it's like a giant tricycle with a seat on the back.
