One interesting thing (and actually quite life threatening) about the Philippines that makes it somewhat unlike from other Asian countries I've been to, is it's rules of the road. The opposite lane of traffic becomes free to use at any time as long as there is no car in it. So your two lanes of traffic could potentially become three, reducing the other lane to one, depending on the traffic. Now this is great if your in the more dominant lane, it's a bummer however if you need to get somewhere and the opposing traffic is hogging your lane. It's most scary to ride at night while doing this, especially in mountainous Baguio City where the the roads are all winding and you can never see whats beyond the next bend. So there you have it!
