Dumaguete City Pedi Cab/Tricycle. Usually has smaller driver who isn't from Nevada. Note the 125cc motor. It will hold 10 or 11 people, No Kidding. The common joke about a Pedi Cab is Question: "Do you know how many people you can fit on a Pedi Cab? Answer: "Just one more".
Something to remember is that there are laws here that govern riding and driving here, but it is hard to find someone to enforce them. You will have to get a Philippine Drivers License if you plan on staying here for an extended period and driving yourself around.
Another thing to remember is that in rural areas medical care can be limited, although they can usually treat broken bones fairly well at the local hospitals. I have had several friends end up in the hospital because they got in traffic accidents before they really knew how to ride very well.

You just need to know a little about what you are doing before you come and start getting experience on the roads here. There is no substitute for experience. So......
LEARN TO RIDE.
If you can learn the basics there, you'll be much better prepared for riding here.
The long and the short of it is that these courses are usually fairly cheap ($250) and are worth every penny. Even though I have been riding for a long time and started in the USA with a Harley Davidson I still took the basic course in California and learned a lot, it has made all the difference in the world.

Traffic Jam and a real Cow-a-Saki motorcycle. Yes the steer is on a motorcycle. There is enough room in the sidecar for about 4 pigs if you tie them up tight.
