Getting about locally can shake those bones 

Philippines tuk tuk travel io style sidecar rickshawI am familiar with using a TAXI and I always thought that London Black Cabs gave a bit of a bone shaking ride but the TAXI’s here take that to a new level.

Let me take you through the streets of Ozamis. We had been exploring part of the city before we headed back to the hotel.

You do need a Filipino licence to drive, getting one is straight forward, the worrying thing is that there is no official driving test required, you have little more than an eye test.

I have also since heard that there are many un-insured drivers so be aware.

The TukTuk comes in many shapes and sizes and the Filipinos, as in all Asian countries, customise their machines, even race them.
