Pedicabs


The pedicab - or tricycle rickshaw - is a uniquely leisurely, romantic and airy form of transport which visitors can hire to tour the captivating waterfront of Nam Van Lake and Sai Van Lake as well as the older historic streets of downtown Macau. Hired at the Macau Ferry Terminal or near Hotel Lisboa, it is recommended that you confirm the price with the rider prior to embarking upon your adventure.
