ON TRAVEL| Have you tried or would you try to ride in a “Habal-habal”? It is one of the most common modes of transportation here in Mindanao. Not your usual motorcycle for riding, habal-habal serves as means of transportation for commuting public in rural areas of Surigao del Norte and most provinces of Mindanao. It is an ordinary or any brand/type of motorcycles redesigned as a public transport that can tolerate rocky, muddy, and off the beaten roads. A big help to locals usually living in mountainous areas wherein roads are mostly not accessible by 4 wheel vehicles. Interesting about this mode of transportation is that the ability/skill of the driver to balance considering the weight of the passengers from side to side, front, plus another 3 to 4 persons at his back.
