LOOK: The Iconic Philippine Sarao Jeepney Goes to New York City!

The sarao jeepney is the iconic mode of public transportation in the Philippines, with this vehicle not just dominating the streets of Manila and the National Capital Region but also the roads of the many islands in the country – and one of these jeeps had just gone on a trip to the US, debuting in the annual Filipino commemoration of the Independence Day in New York City!

Brought to the Big Apple by Fil-Am rapper apl.de.ap, the blue and yellow jeepney bears the slogan of the “It’s More Fun in the Philippines” campaign since the rapper collaborated with the Tourism Promotions Board for the project.

While apl.de.ap did not ride the jeep during the Independence Day parade but on a separate float, proudly waving a Philippine flag, he did post photos of iconic sarao jeep – and so did many Filipinos who were excited to see the jeep on the streets of New York City.
