    Funny when you said u don’t have thai friends in Thailand. Of course, we dont speak English and we are too shy to speak to people. My western friends encountered the same cuz they told me that they wanted to know local ppl in Thailand but they got no chance to meet them since they only stayed in Hostel(which is designed for tourists) and dont start talking with Thai ppl(thai ppl are generally shy but we are super friendly once you get to know us)
    In The Philippines there are not many western tourists like in Thailand. Ppl are paying more attention with white than asian ppl(or even the same asian sometimes). Plus they widely speak English in the Philippines. Due to this language barrier ,this is why you find a lot of friends there. ^_^

      You are right, I know that the language barrier causes most of it. Now I do have some Thai friends after my last visit to Thailand, but they do speak some English.

    In regards to drinking? Where exactly have you been staying in both countries?? I’ve lived in the Philippines for almost a decade and in Thailand for half a year. I have hung out with people from both countries, and both love their alcohol. Although, Thai people are more health conscious so they drink alcohol more moderately compared to filipinos. Filipinos love their alcohol and love to get wasted. Of course I’m not speaking for everyone but in comparison to Thai people Filipinos love a drink or two. I’m just surprised you observed the opposite in the Philippines. :/

      Maybe because I don’t drink, people around me don’t get wasted that much or I choose a healthier community, let’s say 😉

    There are many people who practice Filipino Massage. It is just not that easy to spot compared to those who practice Thai massage in Thailand. Filipino massage is more common and much practiced on households than resorts and spas :)

    You said you “don’t see many Filipinos drinking alcohol” – not true! There are many places where Filipinos drink – in public. You just haven’t gone to the right places!

    Sincerely,
    A Philippine native/resident

    I am a Filipino and I’ve been to Thailand just a few months ago, and ALL your observations are true for both countries. SPot on!

    But what I like the most is you find us friendlier (shy face) LOL! :)

      Thanks, Jon :) Yes, I do find Filipinos friendlier than the Thai people in general, maybe because of the language, too.

    Comment@ Rico:
    No one is judging here, Rico! This is a fact. Plus, I am not a Westener anyway. I just don’t think personally someone 50 years older than you, of the same age like your grandparents, can be really so attractive in your eyes. That’s all.

    Why do people always say it’s sad to see young girls with older Western guys? Jesus, they’re human beings, they have free will. The older Western guys are much more interesting for them then their countrymen. Plus a lot of times what tourists think are young girls are single moms who have screwed up already and are looking for a way out. The problem with you Westerners is that you always judge other people’s lives instead of just enjoying life, and letting others live. You should learn from Asians in that and stop judging when you don’t even have information most of the time !

    Right, transportation in the Philippines was a PITA I have to admit. But on the other hand the beauty of its beaches, people and nature made up for it!

    Interesting. I love Thailand and havne’t been to the Philippines yet. I’ve been wondering if I”m missing out. The fact they’re much more expensive than Thailand but have less of an infrastructure or organization is a little off-putting. But I do hear it’s beautiful there.

    very interesting post and impressive observation about the differences! im from the philippines, based in australia and its true, we always find a reason to laugh–even laughing about a punchline or a joke delivered 1 week ago!, its a way of life i guess! i went to Mexico City and found it quite similar to Manila (except Mexico City is more organised and spacious) , the cultures are very similar too.

    Scott, thanks for your opinion. I have visited more places around both Thailand and Philippines so guessed on all the experiences.

    Although Thailand and the PI share some similarities, the people and the food are as different as Mangos and Watermelons. The food in the PI is generally very greasy and unappetizing IMO, with a couple of exceptions.

    I often have rice porridge here in Thailand (Jok) and love it. In fact, we have packets of the stuff here at home and there’s always rice in the rice cooker. and when I want oatmeal, I have a can at home. Oatmeal is in all the Thai grocery stores. Then again, I always have potato’s in my cupboard so I think it’s a matter of choosing to buy and eat what you want.

    The Thai sex industry is more in your face but it depends on what part of the PI you are in. The same goes for Thailand. You can hang out or live in an area that is predominately full of foreigners and prostitution or you can live in an area that the prostitution is more discreet. In either case, there are working women all over both countries.

    Comment@ Noelfy:
    Thanks for your opinion, Noelfy! Like I said, it does exist in the Philippines but if u go to Thailand, u will see what I meant that there it is everywhere so seeing it scarcely in the Philippines is really nothing then :) And the massages … in the Philippines u can find them only at the touristy places and big cities (like in any othe country in the world), but in Thailand they are every 5 metres, and at the street and at the beach as well :)

    Very nice article but I disagree in 2 points. Though I havent been yet in Thailand,I have been in Philippines 2 months and I am coming back in 2 weeks for at least another 2. (too many 2s, ne?;)
    Massage are everywhere in Phils and really cheap, you can expect to pay from 200PHP(some of the spa’s in Cebu city, like mushrooms) to 700PHP(In Boracay, especially overpriced for tourists)I also had it at least 1 hour a day;)
    Again, not being in Thailand, but in Philippies ladyboys are everywhere, and also very well done. And it’s very sad as well, due to the poberty, to see young girls together with bold old Western Guys….saw this unfortunately everywhere…
    Anyway this is only my opinion! Looking forward to go back to Phils and visit Thailand next year!

    Thanks for this Alex, I’ve never been to the Philippines so it was good to get a view compared to Thailand which I’ve visited a couple of times.

    The Thais that I met tend to be smokers but maybe that was by chance. I think in general the level of smoking is higher in Asia than Europe.

    Thai massage is something to be approached with caution if you’ve never had one before. Foot massage is okay. I once asked for a gentle one hour massage of my head and shoulders, I swear every time she touched me it was agony!

    I love Catfish too, I often have it when in Shanghai.

    Thanks for writing such an interesting and independent article.
