RESIDING IN THAILAND VS PHILIPPINES vv More Info Down Here vv

Having actually stayed in Thailand for numerous years and now briefly going to the Philippines for a couple of weeks. We talk about ‘Staying in Thailand Vs The Philippines’, our Initial observations and thoughts on whether the Philippines would be a major competitor for our expat life in the future.

In this video we talk about the things that we have actually taken a look at during our brief trip to the Philippines and how they compare with our life in Thailand. Consisting of first impressions, cleanliness, security, the Filipino individuals and culture, is the faucet water safe to drink, Filipino food, language obstacles, hospitals, fuel costs, hotels, buying cars, renting vehicles, utilizing a chauffeur service, road conditions, the climate and weather condition, the cost of living, duel pricing systems for foreigners, public transportation, imported foods, shopping malls, armed guards and the general standard of living in the Philippines.

We also speak with Rob, Sacha’s daddy who has been checking out the Philippines several times a year for 9 years. He has a Filipino fiance Luz and has a home in Cavite city Manila that he shares with Luz and her household. We felt that his opinion of the country would be less increased colored and more definitive having spent a lot longer with individuals. Rob plans to retire to the Philippines in the near future when he is doned with work in the UK, and has already had some intriguing experiences.:–RRB-.

We clearly couldn’t cover every subject in this video and we want we had more time to spend in the Philippines so that we could have a deeper understanding of expat life in this amazing nation. But we certainly intend to return and see exactly what else the Philippines needs to provide.

  1. 2 weeks will not be enough to give an overall view of the philippines as a whole. try visit longer and there's 7,100+ islands to explore and diversity of every island has more to offer. anyways, great informative video and thanks for sharing.

  2. What? Philippines have biggest malls in the world than in Thailand. They are much bigger than in Thailand. Had you been in SM Megamall or in SM North EDSA or SM Mall of ASIA? They are one of the top biggest malls in the world.

  3. I really enjoyed your video… I'm currently living in Cebu, Philippines, but travel throughout the country. Your comments are very insightful and are about the same as my observations.

    I live full time in hotels, and your armed guards comments are pretty much right on. Last month there were at least 10 outside the entrance to my large hotel at all times…along with dogs. I've seen very little obvious crime, especially major crime (purse and cell phone snatches are common sadly). I think at hotels and malls especially, the guards are there to prevent possible terror attacks (mainly from disaffected Muslims), which have periodically plagued the country.

    I've been to Thailand several times, and will go there in January (with my Filipina fiance) to decide if the better infrastructure, medical care, and housing options will make is a preferred choice for us.

  4. Hi guys! Your video says a lot of our country. Thanks for telling good things as you have experienced. Just like any place on Earth …we have our share of good and bad things too. We Filipinos have more than 300 years of western colonial rule that honed our traits of today. That is why our ways, standards and culture are 'western' and you westerners can easily adjust.

  5. Nice to see where you got the travel bug from, your father seems like he has travelled a bit also. Big thumbs up guys

  6. Great video I just returned from Ph 2 weeks ago back to Canada Have to agree with many comments you made The people are friendly and welcoming I spent time with families that lived there and each family went out of there way to make sure you had a drink and something to eat ( sending a person to the store to buy soda for me ) My defences were up thinking these people are too nice because maybe they wanted something…which in North america would be the normal thought …I was wrong I stayed a few nights in Tondo which is one of the worse places to stay if your a Westerner However i was lucky to be with a group of people that had rank in the area and were respected ..also armed so walking down the street i met the locals drank at the bar with them and insisted to pay the tab which was half of what i would pay here .. I met a man there that said Manila could be saved if the government changed its laws for trade and ownership of western import and had self starting bussiness programs Like recycled plastics to form solar panels and selling the panels at a low price would cut into saving money on hydro cutting down smog in time more electric cars and mopeds would clear the air as well …listening to this man with maybe 30 pesos in his pocket amazed me on how smart these people really are Think about it In Canada if we have a AC unit break down we throw it out and buy a new out There they bother to take it apart to find out there is dust blocking the intake or Have to fix a wire The make due with everything around them There is amazing things to see there even in dirtest places

  7. The pricing here is Manila pricing, but it's way cheaper when you get out of the capital city. Quality air, cheaper cost of living, laid back environment, and very good potential to raise a family. Try the Visayas region like Cebu, Iloilo, Dumaguete and Bacolod. Way better than Manila.

  8. If you want to find the spicy cuisine in philippines, you may visit bicol lol! Have you guys been there?

  9. Anyway thanks for visiting the philippines, i hoped you enjoyed your stay 🙂
    Come back and visit the philippines again 2016 :)

  10. Also….. about the malls. you have been to Mall of Asia, North Edsa, SM Megamall and even the Provincial ones right?????? It's very easy to find quite large malls, (larger than those in bangkok,) in rural areas of philippines.

  11. BTW: I think you can't drive motorbikes or bikes in Metro Manila, but bikes are very popular and tricycles outside the metropolitian

    Whow, what a great vlog !
    I was thinking a moment ago; if just 5% of the 11,000 subscribers to this wonderful channel pledged just a singular one off payment of a mere £10 pounds that would come to £5,500 pounds. and with just a tiny 2½ % of all subscribers and it would come to £2,750 🙂
    That represents a fairly decent 2nd hand 4 x 4 off road vehicle for Sasha & Jmayel.
    Think about it: that flooded road blocking their progress in Loei province would have been easily accessible and comfortably crossed with confidence. 🙂

    How about it Tony Louise, will £10 quid bankrupt you and everyone else on here ?
    Let’s get started, make a contribution from a Debit Card to their PayPal account now, it’s easy and maybe then a Patreon sub down the road.

    As my grandfather use to say; it takes a lot of talking to fill a pint :-)
