Maybe it's more just Manila, but just what I've heard etc. Statistically though yeah, murder rates are actually quite similar, but Manila seems to have more dangerous areas. Bangkok doesn't feel unsafe walking around at night.

When it comes to traditional costumes, the ao dai is pretty good (the cheongsam is better though) at showing more curves compared to those of other countries.

Watch this video from BBC's pecial feature on the Philippines describing the country is comparable to South American countries than its Asian counterparts..

http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=mEQHbaBtVQA

Vietnam for me looks like China in so many ways...but of course it has its distinct and indigenous character.

Thailand is Thailand with its open society probably because of being a Buddhist nation (?)...

Both Thailand and Vietnam are really majority Asian-cultured countries while majority of the Philippines, they say is a nation situated at accidentally in Asia but with majority of its culture is of Latin...very evident of its culture, way of thinking, traditions, customs, names, ideals...

let me join mates.

Here's my take on the Filipino genes in majority or i say typical. Predominantly a combination of Malay, Polynesian, and a little bit of Chinese-Astronesian.

Though some parts have its distinct mixes. Places like: Batanes, Extreme Northern Ilocos and Cagayan- more on astronesian because of its proximity to Fujian China and Taiwan, Pampanga and Olongapo - high on Pinoys with Black or White mixes due to strong presence of Americans during their military presence then (almost a century), Cordillera region - more on astronesian and some japanese mixes.. - highly known concentration areas of the astronesian way back the pre colonization time, also the last stronghold of those japanese military during ww2. Zamboanga area - known for its Spanish culture and traces of spanish offsprings , as the only area in the Philippines that has dialect (Chabacano) heavily based in Spanish Language.

Also, Pinoys and polynesian in common? both wide bodied and beast in rice consumption
