Ever wonder what it is like to drive in the Philippines? Take a look at this video and you can find out! I really enjoyed driving in and around Bacolod. It was a blessing to have our own vehicle to help us get acclimated to the area and be able to come and go as needed. And it was fun to drive a stick (something I had not done in 15+ years). In spite of the craziness of driving in the Philippines, I did not witness a single accident. Vehicles drive relatively slow (with all of the tricycles and Jeepneys on the road), and even on open stretches of highway outside of the city, I generally kept under 80 kph (about 50 mph) and only very rarely went above 100 kph (about 62 mph).
