Trishaws, also called Side-car in Myanmar, are the easiest and most convenient way of transportation in Myanmar, especially outside of Yangon.
In smaller towns in Myanmar, there is no public bus service. People in these smaller cities and towns have to rely on trishaws as the major mode of public transport.It had become very popular and successful all over Burma, even replacing the electric tram in Yangon and Mandalay.
Trishaws can be found everywhere in Myanmar – Yangon, Mandalay, cities, towns, even in some large villages. Passenger fair is also quite cheap, around 200-300 kyats (0.15 to 0.25 US$) for short distances. Indeed, trishaws are the most basic and essential public transport in Myanmar.
