The Philippines: Transportation


Jeepneys are a uniquely Filipino mode of transportation. Each one decorated differently. They originally were old jeeps converted into buses. Now they are everywhere. You just hop on and keep your head down. These are in Manila.

Three wheeled motorcycles are the next step down. I liken them to bumper cars at an amusement park. There seems to be no limit as to how many people and goods they can carry.

Pedicabs are the cheapest way to get around.
