Filipinos that look Kinh Vietnamese are Filipinos who are mixed with Chinese, and the Moros look like Malay Thais. Everyone knows that Vietnamese are the outlier of Southeast Asians.

actually the filipino ethnic groups who could pass for kihn came from southern china during the iron age....so they could be called chinese...but not han chinese like your thinking...again not every SEAsian who looks EA is necessarily han admixed....

^ Some individual Filipinos look Vietnamese, but not whole ethnic groups. You're confusing because you say Moros and Southern Filipinos came from Malays, so why wouldn't they look like Malays? Instead you're claiming that they look like Viets somehow. Some people that they have no relation to. Moros look like Malays, including Malays in Thailand.

not all Kinarayas look like that. And even if all Kinarayas did, well that's like 300,000 people, not statistically significant and not even relevant to this discussion. Even less relevant than Spanish-mixed Filipinos.

most do.....even if their are only 300,000 that is still an ethnic group

and there are many more ethnic groups like that in the Philippines

and we are talking about generally here

like generally most thai are not chinese....hence why thai on general do not look more NEAsian then viet,,,,especially since you compared thai to formosan descent filipinos who generally dont look asian as well

I would say some of both Vietnamese and Thai could pass as Filipino.



Btw in general both people don't look like Filipino. I have been to all of three countries in most of the area.

I don't know much about ethnic of the Philippine, I don't even know what different between them. When I went to the Philippine in major areas most people look similar.

Btw both Vietnamese and Thai are also not one ethnic. Thai has Dai/Tai as majority and some of Chinese,Khmer,Malay. Vietnamese has Kinh as majority and some of Khmer,Cham,Chinese.

Chinese, khmer, malay in thailand generaly do not identify as ethnic thai
khmer in thailand call themselves surin.....

of course you couldnt tell the difference, all brown people probably look the same to you...most people cant tell the difference between ethnic thai and ethnic khmer.....only thai-chinese stand out in thailand

quite interesting why tai people are called black in vietnam....
