Since 2012 I’ve been traveling through various islands of the Philippines as a full-time Expat and spent 1999 living in Vietnam.

Share with me my ongoing adventures of life in the Philippines. Hopefully you find my observations helpful in your own adventures.

  2. Been here 9 years Reekay and have never paid less than 20 pesos . Just does not feel right. Also for the whole day expect to pay 900 pesos as the average trike earns between 900 to 1500 a day depending on the driver on average . But good info as normal.

  3. This is an old video. The minimum price for a Tricycle in duma is 20 PHP unless you are a student or disabled. I pay 200 PHP from the Robinsons Mall to Bacong almost every day. I only pay 100 PHP if it’s just my girlfriend and I going from Bacong to Robinsons’ 50P if there are other people on the ride. But they almost always ask for an additional 100P if they see a foreigner. All you have to do is just say no thanks and walk away and they will normally call you back and say OK. Don’t ever yell at them or get mad, you can actually get into trouble with the COPS if you yell or get mad at them.

  4. interesting… what to do when youve paid for the hire at the top rate and the hable hable picks up also along the way? youve paid with your gf 30 or 50 pesos and then he stops along the way for others at the lower rate of 8 pesos???? thanks for the info

  5. Thanks for the review bro. I’ve got a question. Have you ever ridden the bus to travel a long distance there with luggage? How safe do you think it is for a trip from Manila to say Urdanetta?

  6. I stayed in North Luzon (Cabanatuan) and the trike ride from my Air b&b to Sm mall which was about 5km was 40p, jeepney about 10p
    Some trike drivers that don’t remember me, try to hit me with an extra 10-20 p for the same ride, but I just refuse and said I always paid 40p but of course with my girlfriend with me, then there’s no discussion. It’s clear that they want to make money in the festive season and beyond, but that doesn’t mean you have to pay excessive amounts.

  7. Reekey You are the only one that can fit inside tricycle and girlfriend behind driver. You are a bigger guy like me. Maybe a couple small children on you lap. looking at your picture, no way more than 3

  8. I usually take taxi cabs because they come into the condo complex and the guard just has one come to our building. Ne won’t overpay because she knows what it should cost.

  9. I rarely went to Robinson in Dumaguet and mostly I preferred to walk instead bother myself and be charge a lot extra. In manila is really worst .taxi in manila horrible .if you are in manila use jeep it is far more fast and far far cheaper.

  10. Nice video Reekay, everything you mentioned has basically been my experience. You could also mention Jeepney’s; great for getting from A to B on the major roads. Pro tip: If you’re at Robinson’s Dumaguete, don’t use the trikes waiting out the front in the designated area, go around the corner or out on to the highway. Why? The trike “wrangler” there will try to charge you up to double the normal price.
