Habal Habal

Habal habal is the term used for motorcycles being used as public transportation in rural areas in the Philippines. They carry from 2 to 14 passengers over rough roads and mountainous terrain. Its a wonder that the driver can expertly navigate over sand, mud and gravel given the number of passengers the motorcycle carries.
