However, that's not really defined by region (at least the large regions) because there's a range of these looks throughout the Philippines. Only some isolated areas have a more homogenous look, and that has to do with the fact that they were isolated, like these groups...

Personally, the area around where the Ifugaos live in the only place in the Philippines where I actually noticed that the people looked different. It was more homogenous and it was noticeable.
Well yeah I agreed, there are maybe noticeable differences between Filipinos in the isolated places like some small villages or islands. But definitely not in the major areas of the Philippines.

To me Filipino has even wider range of looks than Vietnamese and Thai. From what I met they are quite hit or miss, but when they hit they hit quite hard too (Those whom ethnic of Europian or Northeast Asian are quite stuning), but most of the time they are most likely to miss. Filipino could possible to look from Miconesian, to Malay, to East Asian, to Northeast Asian, to European(Spainish-American mestizo), to Indian or even Black-African. For Thai and Vietnamese there are only 3 possible looks for them which are either East Asian, Northeast Asian or Malay.

Answering the topic.

1.Which country has the most advanced enterainment ?
Thailand, both Vietnam and the Philippines are 2nd.

2.Which national language do you think has the best sounding ?
Thai or Filipino, to me Vietnamese is one of the ugliest language I have ever heard in the Earth. Not just only ugliest, they sound kind of funniest when they speak English too.

3.Which cuisine you found to be the best in overall ?
Thailand,Vietnam,the Philippines.

4.Which country has the best weather and tourist attraction ?
Both Thailand and Vietnam. The Philippines is quite a bit too hot for me, maybe because it is the island. Also the Philippines isn't safe as well, I heard people get mugging all the time in the Philippines.

5.Which country has the best fashioning ?
Thailand, both Vietnam and the Philippines are 2nd.

6.Which country has the best looking people ?
Depend on personal preference to finds attractive or not. Filipino look are more likely to giving exotic feeling, while Thai and Vietnamese are more likely to giving lovely feeling kind of closer to Northeast Asian than Filipino.

7.Which country people has the best educaton ?
Thailand,Vietnam, the Philippines

8.Which country has most interested culture ?
All of them

9.Which country people has the best personality ?
Filipino dominated here, as we are all agreed they are the friendliest people in all over Asia. Both Vienamese and Thai are 2nd.

10. Which country to you think you is the best in overall ?
1st Thailand, 2nd Vietnam, 3rd the Philippines.

From what I experienced all Filipinos look the same to me doesn't matter where are they from, Davao/Cebu/Manila or even far north like Laoag. They are all look definitely the same.

For Thais and Vietnameses, it obviously that northerner look more like Southern Chinese. While southerner look more like Filipino or Malay.
In Vietnam i'd say still most look like S.Chinese, although the odd few could pass for Malays. There are Cham/Khmer admixture in Southern Vietnam (remember northern Vietnam was their real cultural heartland) so some people more resemble these people. Overall I see Vietnam as a continuum in terms of looks. I do agree, however, that people in Hanoi do tend to look more Chinese.

It's kinda more like cultural stereotyping. I am wondering without culture influence from other more powerful civilization in the past.

Thai or Vietnamese who is originally more S.Chinese?

I've spent alot of time in all 3, and can elaborate more later.
I agree with Tiger Beer on all those responses except the last one. I'd reverse the order. Thailand first, then Philippines.

A question that wasn't asked influences my choice considerably, and that is safety. Having travelled in both countries recently, I've become aware of problems concerning the safety of western visitors in the Philippines. I don't think the country is "dangerous" per se, but you need to be more careful.

Typing in all caps and using a lot of exclamation points doesn't help prove your point. If anything, it makes you look less believable.

In Vietnam I'd say traffic is probably the most dangerous thing (well in all countries, but even moreso there). Thailand is pretty safe, as long as you try to stay out of trouble...Philippines, yeah, it seems quite dangerous.

I wonder why you always say this when Thailand and the Philippines are about the same, and they're not really dangerous at all compared to most countries. You say it over and over again even thought I always post statistics showing that the Philippines is relatively safe
