^ LRT 2 is the nicest line in Manila, not the MRT or LRT 1 (which were both in the video). And MRT 7 will be even nicer, and it’s a long line.

The tricycles don't go to the MRT stations because the stations are along EDSA (which is a highway). Tricycles don't go on major highways. So most people get the MRT stations by jeepney, bus, taxi, Grab, UV Express (like a taxi van), or they walk. But for LRT-1 and LRT-2, yes it's possible that some passengers get to the stations by tricycle

Makati, BGC, Ortigas, Alabang, and parts of Quezon, Pasay, Parañaque and Manila Cities has pretty much world class areas that can compare even with Singapore and first-world cities in walkability and infrastructure which you wont see much in neighboring ASEAN cities except Singapura.

Can't speak much of Jakarta though.
We booked a room at a motel on Mabini St before our 2nd trip to Manila. 1 night there and we moved to Bayview Park the next day. We had forgotten to check things out ahead. Motel was fine, staff friendly, good food, etc. But terrible neighborhood when the sun went down.

You clearly didnt do your research. Staying in that area (Malate) is like going to NYC and staying in the Bronx, or Compton in LA. That's the old part of Manila that was mostly destroyed during WW2 and never fully rebuilt. That's why it's so rundown. The nice parts of Manila are further inland or further south

I give videos Manila and Jakarta LRT

Manila LRT

Jakarta LRT

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPwDqenONLY

the both looks almost similar, but there is a difference when exiting the LRT via the LRT bridge in Manila we can see there are more seedy buildings while in Jakarta we certainly see the halte busway connected to the LRT and rarely seedy buildings
