Precarious motorcycle taxi transports tourists and families around Philippines

By Ellie Duncombe

This precarious mode of transport allows whole families to travel around the Philippines on just one motorbike.

Photographer Ian Maclean filmed the bizarre vehicles while on a work holiday travelling the country.

 
Each taxi is typically modified by each owner and can sometimes fit a whole family on there.
 
Tourist and locals both use the taxi as a cheap, fun alternative way of travelling the country.
 
Ian said: “This is the way to beat the traffic
.
“For those in a hurry, this is the way to go.
 
“Very fun and exciting.”
