I like Philippines highways and roads, I saw the one that shows trunk roads in Baguio in Southeast Asian Highways thread and was very impressed at the quality and the wonderful scenery !!!

The coastal highway cost P18. My trip to Baguio cost my around P160 (one way) on the NLEX from Manila to Dau.

The rates on the NLEX has dropped while the rate on SLEX increased

Its not implemented because its a low limit.

A few vids of Highways I picked up off of youtube

North Luzon Expressway (has quite a few nice tidbits of info as well)


South Luzon Expressway (from the same guy.. quite a shame he had to cut the ride short due to the most common of all things encountered on any road in and outta Metro Manila: traffic!)


SSC member slerz's vid on highways in Cebu


This one was taken during a Typhoon


A vid of the Skyway, although this ones more concentrated on the scenery whilst driving into Manila (some nice skyline scenes toward the end of the vid )

the highway that starts from Bauang is Naguilian Road. and the one that starts from Rosario LU is the Kennon Rd.

I can't wait to go through this thing! It's the perfect road too! Coz when I go to the Philippines, we will fo sho go to Subic and all we have to do is drive to the Mabiga entrance and we'll be in Subic in no time.
