Nowadays rickshaws (sanlunche) are more strictly speaking “pedicabs” with passengers in covered seats pulled along by someone pedalling a bicycle rather than running between the shafts.
If you’re not in too much of a hurry pedicabs are a good way to go sightseeing but agree on the fare beforehand if you want to avoid an argument at the other end.
All rickshaw are numbered and carry a licence plate showing their number. A quicker way of getting about is by motorised rickshaw, with a motorbike engine powering an enclosed three-wheeler and sometimes with carrying platforms at the back.

It lies on a seabed of fine sand, mud, broken shells and rock, in a general depth of 36 m (LAT). The wreck – referred to by local divers as the upside down wreck’ -is reasonably intact but inverted and collapsed, with the highest part standing just over 3 m from the seabed. It covers an area of 64 m in length by 14 m across. Lying beneath the wreckage are large aluminium castings that appear to be part of a cargo. Location: 1.55 nm E of Craster and 2.06 nm SSE of Castle Point, Dunstanburgh The Acclivity (Official No.162667) was a steel-hulled 389-ton British motor tanker measuring 49.98 m in length, with a 7.46-m beam and a 2. 76-m draught. George Brown and Co. at Greenock built and completed her over 12 months as Yard No.182 in December 1931; she was launched on 29 October 1931 for F. T. Everard and Sons Ltd, London, who also owned her at the time of loss. The single bronze screw was powered by an aft-positioned 112-nhp, two-stroke single acting four cylinder diesel oil engine and a donkey boiler working at a pressure of 180 psi. Newbury Diesel Co. Ltd, Newbury manufactured the machinery. She had a flat keel, nine bulkheads cemented, one deck, a 13. 10-m poop deck and a 6.09-m forecastle. The vessel also had 123 tons of cellular double bottom, a 46-ton deep-tank aft and a fore-peak and aft-peak tank. The designated code recognition signal letters were: MQDK. The wreck is orientated in a N by E to S by W direction and lies on a seabed of hard sand and gravel, in a general depth of 26 m (LAT). It is intact and leans over on its port side with the deck vertical against a small reef. The aft bridge structure has now fallen onto the stony seabed. There is a lot of debris lying in the small area between the decks and the reef. The bell has so far not been recovered and is very likely to have fallen into the silt and debris that has built up around the bow section. The general layout is similar to any other small tanker, with few portholes and much of the forefront taken up with pipework.
