Your LRT interior in Jakarta looks rather similar to the interior of the new coaches of PNR, Manilas commuter rail at 10:09 on this video.

You'll see the new and old coaches/trains on this line which is the oldest in Southeast Asia.

I enjoyed Mania (my wife is filipino) but I must admit that I got tired the "hey Joe" greeting that seemed to happen every 5 minutes thruout the day. Now granted I'm a 6'4" Scandinavian but still...


Manila is fun but I we much prefer Bangkok if you are looking for a very big fun packed city.

Bangkok is big but not as big as Metro Manila.

The MRT passes through 2 major business districts, Makati and Ortigas, so they're very much connected to apartments, skyscrapers, etc.

If you get out of the train at Makati, you can walk for several kilometers in Makati CBD without having to worry about cars, the sun, or the rain. Makati CDB has a series of connected elevated walkways that connect from the far end of the CBD all the way to the Ayala MRT station. So apartments, shopping, dining and entertainment are all connected to each other and to the MRT station.

I'm not talking about pedestrian bridges like you have in Jakarta. I'm talking about a series of elevated walkways to get around the city, like the ones below.




There are also many underground walkways




So unlike Jakarta, the city is much more pedestrian-friendly. You can live and work in Makati or BGC without a car.


Ortigas (the third major business district) is also building elevated walkways, and they have several MRT stations too

and just on an aesthetic level, Makati CDB is more attractive than anything in Jakarta or even Bangkok

you can also see the underground walkways towards the middle of the video. See how walkable the whole place is? Jakarta has nothing that looks like Makati. CBDs in Jakarta are built along huge highways and mostly cater to cars, not pedestrians

The differences are that the one in Manila is slightly wider and has poles in the middle. Also, not as much glass. The trains are older. We've had LRT/MRT for 20 years already. But the LRT2 looks at clean and comfortable as your new trains. It also helps that they're wider. LRT 2 also has several TV monitors in every carriage. They show commercials, and they also show what the next stop is and what landmarks are at each stop

Here's the LRT 2 in Manila, and you can see the exterior and interior

You can see the TV monitors toward the end of the video

They still keep thinking that their LRT is the best in SEA, quite funny tbh.

To borrow from a comment on Youtube from a Singaporean named Ali Yahya "Filipinos have their own LRT for a long time and yet not arrogant like the Indonesians. Jakarta LRT is still under development and yet many Indonesians creating video on Youtube and claim theirs is the best and start to compare and insulting Malaysians LRT which already existed 20 years ago. I'm Singaporean btw..."

Ikr, with the establishment of Makati subway(different from the Metro Manila subway), this would look and feel even more like first worldish financial city like New York or Tokyo not just on a developing SEA level.

Actually it's been already 34 years since LRT1 was established. Looks like the interval of building new line in Manila is one per decade. Had it been shorter say 5 years a new line is added, Manilas MRT system would have been as extensive as Singapores if not more.
