Stadiums, luxury cars, first class trains. Meanwhile, Manila is still saddled with the most shambolic slums of southeast Asia. Wonderful.

its the extremes of life as they say. wonderful if you could join them and live with them for at least a month..

Well sometimes that's their choice, many attempts of the national gov't to provide them decent housing but most of those people choose to stay.. or some of them don't want to go back to their provinces and live the simple life, they'd rather live in those slums areas.

on the other hand, yes still 3rd world, but moving forward, educated people from all sectors have the better chance now as compared last decade. Middle class is growing at the same time.

Impressive mate!

Bali is a given as I expected or top of mind shall i say. I don't expect Manila to be in that data. It surprises me though, and even in the ADP growth.

I want to see which areas are covered instead. it seems that its on the quantitative basis. Value is more important. Let's say most number of occupied spaces in those CBDs areas or offices etc.. things like that rather that those low value areas as i refer to quantity.

though still good data i say.

How about for residential properties? Here are the promising cities:

Manila (1st) - Manila emerging as this year’s top investment pick.

“Of all the markets, that’s the one where people are looking to get in most,” Galloway said. “It’s easy to function there on a cultural basis. The levels of corruption are not as high as they once were. It’s has an English-speaking, educated workforce, and there is new interest in the Philippines from multinational companies looking to set up back-office facilities there, which drives demand from expatriates.”

Jakarta (3rd) - “It’s a bit of a mystery, really,” Galloway said, admitting that when Indonesia topped ULI’s 2013 list of investment picks, “we thought it was a fluke.” But when 2014’s results were tabulated, there again was Jakarta sitting at No. 3, behind only Manila and Tokyo.

“Indonesia is ‘difficult to operate in for lots of reasons … It has immense potential, as far as the whole outline of land development is concerned, but the problem that prevents us from going in is that of getting a clean land title.’ Beyond that, there is little incentive for local developers to partner with foreigners,” Galloway wrote, quoting one of more than 50 developers and investors he personally interviewed.

Bangkok (5th) – Survey respondents listed the Thai capital among their favorites more frequently this year, but experts remain guarded. The report classifies Bangkok as a “relatively less-competitive, higher-return market than Asia’s more-conventional destinations,” but cites risks in finding quality buys. Prices and rents have been rising and vacancy rates falling, however, so there’s upside in buying from an investment stance.

Ho Chi Minh City (10th) – Clobbered by two years of soaring inflation and bad loans, Vietnam’s largest city likely has hit bottom and investors say now is the time to get back into the property market there. “Residential real estate is a more-attractive investment than before,” the report states. Interest rates and gold prices are down and, a despite a severe shortage of quality stock, the pool is expected to increase 50 percent by 2121.

Kuala Lumpur (15th) – Investors and developers dealt Malaysia the biggest hit in this year’s survey due largely to a huge glut of supply. “While there is now less supply in the pipeline, there has been a speculative element to recent construction activity, especially in high-end residential projects. As one fund manager said, “last time I went to Kuala Lumpur, you see those residential buildings, empty blocks after blocks.”
