Why Rickshaw

Why Rickshaw

We’re all about meaningful experiences in Malaysia. When you travel with us you’ll stay in authentic accommodation, rub shoulders with local communities and visit remote, tiny islands. Journey into the jungle, get lost in the big city and sip on tropical cocktails with the powdery white sand between your toes.

  • Learn to paint batik from the masters at a local village
  • Fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle in one of Malaysia’s lesser known National Parks
  • Discover colourful coral reefs and underwater animals on remote Gem Island.
