They're doing the same thing in Manila's slums. Just look at the before and after pictures

Most of Jakarta looks the same as Manila, but what Jakarta lacks are the well-planned, walkable business districts that Metro Manila has

like BGC

Jakarta has no areas comparable to those ^. These areas feel like their own separate cities, with their own big skylines. Jakarta's skyscrapers are too scattered.

I think southeast asia should reunify like in the times of the majapahit. Garuda should fly on the flag. The nation should be secular and cast off the ways of the bedoiuns, papists, and communists and follow the ways of the majaphit. This holds southeast asia back.

The phillipines needs to be remained. The same infers a slave mentality of being subjects of king phillip of spain.

With unification, you be able to properly hold off the PLA's Navy. Only the majapahit were able to stop kubla khan and the yuan dynasty.

Don't forget to preserve your martial art systems.

good luck

Indonesia made Raid yet you are still importing Philippine dramas and television series which is weird. Imo entertainment and showbiz in the Phils is still ahead of Indonesia. We also have more world class stars than you. Though I dont think thats the point of this thread. Think this is more of economic and social comparison.

Just my personal thought of the population class/ area vibrancy percentage of both cities.

Manila
A+ - 10%
A- - 10%
B+ - 15%
B- - 20%
C+ - 20%
C- - 10%
D+ - 10%
D- - 5%

Jakarta
A+ - 5%
A- - 5%
B+ - 20%
B- - 20%
C+ - 20%
C- - 15%
D+ - 10%

Even ID and PH martial arts system are very similar. Pencak silat seems to be very much related to Kali or Eskrima or Arnis. Them regarded as one of the most practical, effective and deadliest art of self-defense. Panuntukan, palasut and the variations with blades looks like the most similar to silat.

The skyscraper building in Jakarta if you compare with Manila of course jakarta is still the best good example of architectural design , luxury, next year more will be connected with mass transportation etc. skyscraper Manila is better but still different from Jakarta
Jakarta proves that Indonesia is no less competitive with metropolitan, etc. in the year 2018 this Jakarta ranked 7 world recorded has many skyscraper as much as 382, Manila not even included in the list

even Jakarta ekspatriat are increasing which come from America, UK and etc, they are generally executives who are generally working in Jakarta, you do not wonder when you come to grand Indonesia, thamrin, kemang, kuningan city many find them there

Nah Manila and the Phils alone being one of the hotspot for offshoring businesses makes a bulk of substantial number of expats, the employees maybe Filipinos but many of the executives are foreigners living here. Backpackers are mainly concentrated to touristy areas like Palawan, Cebu, Bohol, Siargao, Boracay, etc. Manila is more of a business city rather than tourist or backpacker city. Not sure how big expat pop in Jakarta but certainly expat pop in Manila is huge.

PS: Metro Manila has more skyscraper than Jakarta. (Ugh so tiring to keep repeating this.)
