One of the most unique ways to get around in the Philippines is riding a Jeepney. They look like a cross between a bus and a Thai tuk-tuk, and they were originally created using leftover military Jeeps from WWII. They are an efficient means of transport, and have a quirky flair that is unique to the Philippines.

A great way to bring home the character of the islands is by picking up your very own mini Jeepney! They are sold in souvenir shops everywhere, making it a fun and easy present to bring back.
