4×4 Ride at the Paoay Sand Dunes

By on July 16, 2010
The best ride in getting to and around the Paoay sand dunes is via a rugged, 4x4 vehicle. This would ensure adequate traction especially at loose spots and in going up and down the sand hills. Stay away from the tricycles or your family sedan when you can help it.
