(SPOT.ph) You already know where to buy bicycles, e-bikes, and even three-wheelers. If you're still not confident about your biking skills, you might want to consider getting a kick scooter (read: the ones that you stand on) instead.
Kick scooters are basically adult versions of those scooters you used to play with in toy stores, except they're motorized—meaning, they can give you an extra boost, helping you can get to your destination quicker. A lot of them are foldable, too, so they take up less space compared to bikes. Not sure where to shop? Don't worry, a lot of them won't even require you to physically leave your house.
These are the stores that sell kick scooters in Manila:
