PHILIPPINES tourist JEEPNEYS AND PICS coming from Thailand TO THE PHILIPPINES
Manila transport is crazy but everyone gets there but note they love the horns. The vehicles are mostly older types and you never see the latest BMWs or Mercs on the road due to the security risk of being held up and your vehicles and you are taken hostage? No not really but you will see why when you get there as security is unreal. As silly as it sounds its true so you will see the armoured Ford Suburbans riding the streets all owned by the wealthy who don't want to be seen. Philippines just like Thailand and Indonesia are run by a few upper class families who fire the shots and of course bank all the doleros. The Philippines is still a cowboy place and the security guards ride armed shotgun everywhere from ordinary shops to 7/11s and searches into malls etc are the norm.
The Jeepneys are everywhere in Manila and all shape, sizes and colour configurations but one thing you will notice they are made for small "pigmies" from New Guinea. If youre a Big Mac fan with a 45-65 waiste size forget trying to climb into one as the headroom is too small and you will have trouble tucking your tummy in. The cost starts at 7P but you need to know where they go if you use them. Better to have a guide but ask as everyone speaks English --better than Thailand.
Jeepney (converted military elongated stainless jeeps) and bus services run everywhere in towns and cities and a cheap means of taxis a bit like sngtaews in Thailand.

SMALL BICYCLES : These are small bicycle mounted samlaws and are Ok for small distances. Cost range in the 20-30P area but ask first and its better than walking. They are everywhere and its good to help the locals. But check out [ the Rental bikes ]
The small sidecars are an Ok way to get around as long as youre not too fat and over 5ft high. Like the jeepneys they have hardly any headroom and a big Aussie will find it hard to sit in properly let alone a MacDonalds addict from the USA. But they are inexpensive so ask the price first. In Subic most foreigners stay around the Bay at places like Blue Rock etc and you can take a sidecar to the main road but don't use them any further for if they crash theres not must iron to look after you and you will sail to heaven pretty quick. Transfer to the lowriders or jeepneys into town for 12P which are even cheaper than the sidecars and go to many places. Look on the side or ask someone inside. When you need to stop just tap on the railings on the roof and the driver will stop.
