    the Habal Habal

    the most daring ride i ever had

    The most common ride you would find in the island of Samal is the Habal HAbal - a motorcycle. They charge P200 per ride depending on where you are going. In our case we hired the man almost half of the day to bring us to some unusual spots in the island. You will see them in the other pages i will upload.

    Hang ON! Happy Trip!
