I wish Manila and Jakarta had more ambitious plans as Bangkok does, but these are making some progress nonetheless.
Well for sure Bangkok is a small brother whom his elder brothers are allowing him to outgrow them at first but in the end maturity will outgrow the younger brother and elder brothers still would suffice.

does Jakarta have an equivalent to BGC

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1bfcgZIk5w

It's a completely new area that's very pedestrian-friendly, with lots of parks and outdoor shopping and dining areas. It's almost 300 hectares, so it's not a tiny area. Equivalent to the the downtown area of a mid-sized city. You could call it Manila's new downtown.

The Hyundai Rotem you are saying are the trains that are gonna be installed on the upcoming MRT7 or the red line. If MRT7 can replicate what you have there, as your LRT exactly looks like a red line too, then you are simply looking a twin line in Manila. So still you have a lot of catching up to do on your part.

While you are yet establishing your MRT presence there, Manila is already looking into the subway lines, monorail and cable car system.
it's still different I even say it's not the same as the Manila LRT2 .. Jakarta LRT is more like skytrain soekarno Airport the difference is skytrain have full screen door and have pole in the middle train while the interior, colour of train, station looks similar

LRT Jakarta ( pleaning of Jakarta LRT operates next year, possibly in conjunction with the Jakarta MRT)

SKYTRAIN Soekarno Hatta Airpot ( already operating 2 years ago )

I dont see a big difference in the trains. I see a difference in the stations. In Jakarta they have the doors on the platform so people cant jump on the tracks. I feel like it's an added luxury but not necessary. Besides some stations in Japan, most train stations around the world dont have that.

But the Jakarta trains dont look different other than the fact that they are thinner than LRT 2. They look to be about the same size as MRT and LRT 1.

LRT 2 has poles in the middle of the train

The first pic is similar to the LRT2 but it's thinner.


You couldnt see the hanging handles in the pic I posted, but there are handles in the middle and right above the seats

Manila definitely wins in skylines and how clustered its CBDs are


Here are the two main ones, Makati and BGC

And here's the third CBD that is not in the video above. Ortigas

So it's like Manila has 3 dense, walkable downtown areas.

Hands down, it even beats Bangkok and KLs CBDs. Only Singapore is on a different level.

In what way? Bangkok is definitely the more developed city. It’s not what the neighboring countries allow or disallow. I was also talking specifically about infrastructure, and there is no conceivable argument that Manila has better infrastructure than Bangkok.
