If you really want an answer to the question, you have to tell us more about yourself.
Do you prefer Indonesian or Philippine women?

I ask about women because you seem ambivalent about the city, yet particular about the experience.

Well, the LRT and MRT of Manila were the first in Southeast Asia. When Jakarta still only had roads, Manila already had an MRT, so of course Manila would have dated infrastructure they're old.

maybe the guy is not used to using the train in his country. especially full train of people who are jostling. usually the LRT is equipped with AC, it impossible the smell of sweat , rarely se asian people have smell sweat , because the food factors of Southeast Asians are usually low in spices, except Korea for example they have high food from spices like bulbogi,kimchi etc.

I've rode LRT1, MRT3 and LRT2 several times, a hundred or so and I've never smelled anything unusual on these trains. There was certain occasion when it was filled in full and some construction workers were on it and that was the only time it smelled bad. The smell were from the individuals not from the train itself.

These trains are for the masses in Manila as they are quite affordable and faster unlike probably the one in Jakarta that only the richer people ride it. Is that the case?

LRT2 is the best line in Manila and it reminds me of trains in developed countries.

It's the widest train, which is why it's usually not crowded


The LRT1 line is ok, but the cars are too thin and the trains look older.


MRT cars are also too thin and can get very crowded. This line goes through 2 of the major business districts (Makati and Ortigas) so it's so packed during rush hours. They're not so bad during non-rush hours and on weekends. This train has the most malfunctions, but luckily I've never been on it when it stopped on the tracks.


PNR is another train line in Manila, but it's heavy rail. I've never been on it, but apparently it's the oldest/cheapest one.

Backpackers seem to like the Rice Terraces in Northern Luzon....Siargao is more for surfing. Boracay is for almost everyone. There really isn't a good backpacker area, that I can think of, in the traditional Thailand/Ko Sahn Road sense.
only poor americans will marry with filipinos , the rich of course don't want married with them of course americans married filipinos women they are ready to be poor and americans are disgusted with pagpag chickens

You have it mixed up. It's poor Filipinas who marry Americans (because they want to go to America and have a better life). Rich Filipinas dont really care about American men.



Poor Americans cant even afford the ticket to get to the Philippines.
