Globetrotters love to tell stories of how they survived a bus trip in a developing country, crammed not only with people but also with chickens and piglets, with passengers sitting on the rooftop, and with a reckless driver who never slows down, no matter how sharply the road bends. In reality, bus tripping in the Philippines is more comfortable and secure than that, but it can be an adventure nevertheless.
