Just a piece of advise you to stop calling that subway as you would be a subject of ridicule my friend.

From the looks of it, it seems that it would be a better version of your MRT, hopefully crossing fingers.
Say that to Al Jazeera, Channel NewsAsia, and other International news agencies that called MRT Jakarta as "subway".

Nah, it shows exactly that you are lack of information and experience. Have you tried New York subway? Is it fully underground? NO NO NO .... Feel free to search .... Thank me later for the free information again and again

Newer will likely own better technology, as simple as that. And that's fine for me. Just like Manila's MRT and LRT, they are hella too old and outdated. Even old Jakarta Commuter Line, a secondhand rolling stocks from Tokyo Metro, look way fancier. Good Luck with your subway project.

Jakarta's MRT now has a name, it's Ratangga, isn't it?

Though Jakarta is a bit late in this rapid-transit game, but it's catching up fast. And the stations do look nice, neat, and modern.

Though I'm still amazed more by Bangkok MRT stations, esp Sanam Chai. Looks so lux and fanceeehh ....

Honestly, I don't have much expectation. I just hope Philippines is determined enough to go on and host this event. Or else, it will just put burden on the more prepared countries like Indonesia or Thailand which have enough problems in holding elections this year. Please don't add!

It's planned to be fully completed 2025 but partially 3 stations are to be completed by 2022.

The difference is that they first built it as a subway in mind which means elevated stations were only built later, in fact looks like 80% or more of it are underground so it is befitting to be called subway. Whereas, in the case of Jakarta LRT/MRT most of it are elevated. So 80-20 versus 20-80? If I were you I wont call it a subway(its shameful tbh). Its just not befitting to be called as one. Underground stations fits more. Anyway, it would be the experience rather than the name that matters most.

I think the best that you can do is prepare your athletes for the competition. Filipinos aren't seeing this an issue. Idk why Indonesians are so concerned and mindful of these, you are waiting for someone to stumble and fall. We have enough of crab mentality here please don't add!

You see the difference between white men in Manila and Jakarta ...white man in Manila he just went with his camera shot to the buildings and the peoples who walked maybe he had no other place choice in Manila other when than BCG compared white man in Jakarta he actually liked the stadium, suburbs of Jakarta, food because for him it was more interesting he might not like go see tall buildings, shops, see people walking because the citys in his country is very far above compared to cities in southeast asia. i think pinoys are too brave to say BCG /Makati there is a touch of new york, manhattam or tokyo this is something very funny , high class city like singapore never claims

I don't like to talk about "looks like", since it's already there, easily measured and it's clearly not 80% underground for NY subway. And Jakarta MRT is 20% underground? Show me some intelligence and search again for the right information please.

Because once Philippines is declared unfit to host, Jakarta or Bangkok will likely be appointed to take the responsibility (mess) you've made. Such a shame for a country as big as Philippines to find issues in hosting an event as small as Sea Games.

In my opinion, Manila is so Westernized. I didn't see much local cultures in the city. Sure you can go to Intramuros, a walled old colonial city influenced by Spanish. Pretty well maintained one.

The food is also not as spicy and rich as other Asian cuisines, influenced heavily by either Spanish and American foods. The most famous one and unfortunately I couldn't be able to try was Lechon, pretty much like Babi Guling in Bali. Balut? No thank you.

The main attraction is, yeah, those fancy CBD and malls.
