A rickshaw driver indulges in a nap while waiting for customers in the historic city of Melaka, 2 hours south of Kuala Lumpur. The colorfully decorated, somtimes lit with lights and equipped with stereo systems, Rickshaws are a tourist attraction in Melaka and Penang and a great way to explore the old towns. They used to be an important means of transport for the population, but today rickshaws are mostly just a tourist transportation. Though, in some cities you can see still traditional rickshaws (undecorated), mainly in the vicinity of morning markets, such as in Kota Bharu and Kuala Terengganu on the east coast.
