Philippine Tricycles

Have you ever seen a tricycle? Ridden in one? This three-wheeled motorized cycle is ubiquitous in the Philippines. Used as public utility vehicles, a visit to small cities and rural areas would show that tricycles are effective means of transport for Filipinos. Do not be surprised to see a tricycle with more than half a dozen passengers on board. Two could sit behind the driver and six in the side car. There could be one or two standing, holding on at the side. The tricycle could handle dirt, pebbled, and rocky roads. Venture a little bit outside the city when you visit the Philippines and get on a tricycle. A ride in one is a thrilling experience.
