Types of Tricycles in Asia

by | Jul 10, 2017 | Uncategorized

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Most likely, you have seen a tricycle or have tried commuting via a tricycle – the noisy little engine, the steel sheet that protects you from the sun’s rays, the wind that blows against your face as the driver’s tread the subdivision roads. Okay, that might be an over glorified description of a tricycle. But come to think of it, this little motor powered vehicle has done a lot of help for us. For those of us wanting to save money from riding a cab or for those of us who wants to skip the walk and just relax, riding a tricycle is a very convenient choice of transit.


As a Filipino, we consider the tricycle as an icon for our country. We take pride like how we see jeepneys as a purely pinoy innovation. But did you know that tricycles are an evolution of what used to be human or animal powered? We all know the “kalesa,” a horse-drawn carriage used for transport back in the day. How about the rickshaw? A human-powered cart that originated in Japan. Before it became what it is today, it has gone through a lot of transformations. Now, we even have other versions like pedicabs or “trisikads” as other people would call it. A pedicab is like a tricycle’s little brother taking almost the same form but is (differentiated from how it is operated) operated differently. Instead of an engine or a motor, the driver manually pedals for the vehicle to move.


Not to spoil your proud Filipino moment but there are actually tricycles from all over the world, especially Asia! Sure they may be named differently but it serves the same purpose. Let’s go over some variations of tricycles, shall we?
