The Philippines is very adapt to finding ways out of problems that will not cost money. Transport is one of those things that shows the ingenuity of the Filipino. Be in car,Jeepney or bike a raft or being dragged on rollerskating behind a vehicle. Wheres there is a way they will find it. Here are some examples of transport fun in the Philippines.
For traveling in the Philippines there are a lot of cheap possibilities. For the long distances on the bigger islands, the busses are the best possibility. Traveling per train is hardly possible, because there is only on one island a railway. Taking the train is only possible on the northern island of Luzon. This comfortable, air-conditioned train brings you from Manila to Naga in the southeastern part of Luzon. The journey takes 14 hours and costs about 7 American dollar.
For the shorter distances on all islands (outside and inside towns and cities), people make use of the jeepneys, multicabs and tricycles. In big cities like Manila or Cebu City, the most common mean of transportation is the jeepney. Everywhere in the Philippines, for the more short and local distances, the multicabs and tricycles are used by many Filipinos. The tricycle, a motorcycle with an attached passenger-cabin on a third wheel, is the cheapest. The big advantage of the tricycle is that it will bring you to every desired place. The multicabs, just as the jeepneys, have fixed routes.
