Friday Photo 006- Philippines Jeepney

If you know me, I have this weird obsession with getting excited by different types of transport around South East Asia. This is a Jeepney, one on the images that is directly associated with the Philippines. The story of how Jeepney came top be in the Philippines is also very fascinating. This goes right in the top 10 of my favorite South East Asia ‘crazy vehicles’.

From WikipediaJeepneys are the most popular means of public transportation in the Philippines. They were originally made from US military jeeps left over from World War II and are known for their flamboyant decoration and crowded seating. They have become a symbol of Philippine culture.
