The Jeepney is the most widely used public transportation in Manila. It came about over 70 years ago, the military jeep from America that the soldiers left in the Philippines after World War II. Filipinos painted them and started using them for public transport for the decoration and the decoration is really something to see. Currently there are companies that make base parts of other vehicles. Riding costs 8pesos (13 cents in Euros) and it's an adventure.
