Street Photography and Portraiture
They’re slow, quiet, Eco-friendly, and so much fun.
Where is this? They actually still use Kalesas?
Angeles City, Pampanga. There are still a few of them in the city. They wait for their fares on the outskirts of the city and travel to the suburbs. I don’t think they are allowed on the inner city roads. They certainly are much more pleasurable to ride in than a jeepney or a tricycle.
I hope they get more of the electrical tricycles out into the provinces because while I love getting around in them, they are soooo loud and pollute the air to no end. Too bad they don’t use kalesas anymore in the small towns. I agree, it would be so much more pleasant!
Great pictures. I’m a fan! 🙂
Thank you Annie. Please come again, and I look forward to seeing more pictures from your part of the world or wherever your feet take you.
In Spain, many cities have carriages as a tourist attraction in the city centers.
Nice pictures 🙂
True here as well, but there are still a few towns and small cities in the Philippines where they are used as everyday public transportation.
Very nostalgic. I still remember having the time of my life as a kid when we visited this particular city and had the opportunity to ride the kalesas. I’m glad they are still around.
Those carriage reminds me of Laoag and Vigan City. Beautiful!
