Thai Girls or Filipinas – What is Better?

What SE Asian county has the best girls? To compare Thai girls and Filipinas, I made this short cheat list:

It seems like Thailand has:

A friend from Bangkok, Thailand

Bangkok: Ms. K.K. from Thailand

  1. Great infra-structure (roads, electric Skytrain that works, free internet access points all over the city), great shopping selection and reasonable prices.
  2. Delicious Thai food!
  3. Friendly straight Thai girls (girls with day jobs who do not dabble in the nightime/entertainment business), but they appear to be harder to seduce and bed than Filipinas.
  4. Japanese tourists, and a chance to meet Asian females from affluent Japan.
  5. Tall Thai girls that dress like they stepped out of a fashion magazine, even if working in a poor paying office job! —- They spend more money on clothes and grooming than Filipinas.
  6. Taxis that do not look like they are falling apart. And, the average taxi fare is only about a US $1.50.
  7. Streets are safe for walking late at night in any part of the Bangkok city.
  8. The Thai girls do not understand half of what you are saying – because of poor understanding of English, and you will understand even less of what they are saying.


It seems like Philippines has:

  1. Extremely friendly and sexy Filipina girls – but mostly dirt poor.
  2. Some safe parts (like Makati) and other areas of Manila that are not safe.

    A friend from the Philippines

    Cebu: Ms. E. from the Philippines

  3. Always hassled by beggars and kids that ask for money at traffic lights and on the street.
  4. Filipina girls are short – (average height around 4’11”).
  5. Some Filipinas are very cute with mixed Euro or Chinese blood.
  6. Slums and poor people scamming and trying to make a living on internet and elsewhere.
  7. Taxies that have rigged meters or cab drivers that love to take you for unannounced tour around town.
  8. Excellent communications because everyone speaks English.

So, where would you live – Thailand or Philippines?

Do you prefer a country where girls are taller and things work most of the time i.e. phone, electricity, internet etc? —

Or, do you prefer a country with lots of short, cute girls that are extremely friendly, but has poor infrastructure outside a small pocket of Makati in Metro Manila?

PS I have been traveling to the Philippines recently – Makati, Manila, Boracay and Cebu – and I must say the the people are extremely friendly and speak perfect English, anywhere in Philippines.  It is my favorite place at the moment.  Perhaps I will retire to the Philippines? (smile)

    One thing i forgot to mention, the Philpina woman wins in the looks department slighly on points, just….in my opinion that is.

  • ken hutton

    I personally prefer Thailand, but not for the women.
    i just feel more comfortable there.
    As far as saying a Thai or Philipna is better , is not a reasonable question. The individul personality does come in to it.I have read all these responses to the question, and experienced both , and found what people are saying is true about both to a degree, but not totally.
    But my opinion , if you had to choose, i think in the long term , marrying a Philipina would probably be a better decicision. Some Thai women can be a bit shallow sometimes, but not all .
    I have been married to a Thai lady for 12 years, and her family will always come first, as maybe the case of Phlipina women too, but not as much.
    At the end of the day, i think there is not a whole lot of difference.Just make sure before you commit. Do your home work and be careful, to avoid any of the problems.
    In other words, don’t rush in to a marriage with either.

    Phil Zenn I was so sad by your story. A piece of advise, always be smart girls like that exist anywhere else in the world. And I agree with Dr. can ask tips from him on how to date a Filipina and well, I can help you out too. Good luck!

  • Moira

    I am not being biased with my own race but I do agree that once a Filipina loves you, she will love you forever and take care of you til death do you part. 🙂 goodluck gentlemen especially those that have a present relationship with Filipinas, take care of them properly and you will never go wrong.

  • Phil Zenn

    I have an “online” relationship with a lovely Filipina lady. I’m looking forward to meeting her and visiting the Philippines for the first time soon. I have visited Thailand four times for a month or two each time, where I had a girlfriend I was very fond of and intended to marry. We visited and stayed with her rice farming parents several times and everything was fine. I even bought them a new washing machine and gave them several thousand baht – sort of a down payment of a dowry according to custom. I bought the girl (who I met in Chiang Mai) a motor bike, got her a driver’s license, and paid for and helped her get a divorce and a passport. She refused to attend English language classes I offered to pay for(?). One month after I left the last time and returned to the U.S. (I left her with 8,000 baht), I got a call from her stating she desperately needed money, which I didn’t have at that time. The next time I called she told me “Sorry Phil, I get one more. . .” (meaning she’d taken up with another man). It made me cry but now I understand she was simply taking advantage of me and love had never entered her mind. There you have it, sob story #1,362,496 from a falang in Thailand. I hope I have better luck in the Philippines!

    • Yes, I hate to tell you (Phil) that you are not the first story I have heard about girls in Thailand. It even happened to me – and she left, when I refused to buy a car and condo for my girlfriend in Bangkok.

      I have not yet personally had this problem in the Philippines, and many of my male friends now live in the Philippines and are happy with their Filipina girlfriend or wife. Let me know if you need some advice on dating Filipina girls. (smile)

    George, bad for you for ending up with cheap filipina girls and being in a wrong place and wrong company…If you just met up with average Filipinas you would be awed by their beauty and exquisite intelligence (or maybe you will be intimidated). Mind you, if you live in the big city you wont say people are backward unless you end up in the Philippine countryside, don’t judge the book by its cover, I wonder too if you have traveled extensively all over the Philippines as much as I did. But then again, it your own opinion of my country and my people, no hard feelings here. Peace out!

  • well i been married to both, filipina, and thai,, and the woman reflect the country and culture, both are currupt and full of croojs, but thailand has come a long way in the past 30 years and the Phililippens has gone from bad to worse with a bigger marigin in hippcoracy and double standerds, the Thai culture is more pure and Asian the Pinoy,s a mirror of image of ex spanich colony,s currupt and back ward dirty, basically a mongeral race, but great cheap girls in Angeles city for a few $$$, its always going to be a super slum.

  • Phil Zenn

    Do you think its maybe because Thailand is Buddhist and the Philippines are Christian (Catholic)? I love the slender Thai look but their honesty is questionable(in my experience)

  • philippinlover

    certainly it is initially at the eye of each viewer.Generally are the Asian women most beautiful in this world for me.I still live in thailand and therefore know both countries and women and can say that a Filipina is for me the better woman.Beautiful, sensitive, understanding, generous, romantic, and honest – that Missing most women here in thailand.

  • Moira

    I am a Filipno, I agree with some of what you wrote about my people and wont agree with some and I respect your opinion, its all yours thank you. Honestly, in my own opinion too, not all well educated and wealthy filipinos are arrogant, it goes back to the values of a person whether he or she is a thai or filipino.

  • tommy

    I assume you are a Filipino? What i wrote is what i think and i’m 100% sure about it. You don’t have to agree od disagree with me, because I know what I think.

    Thais like to smile, talk nonsense and have fun while Filipinos alot less.

  • Moira

    American Pilot…I’m so sorry to hear of your plight, you might have married a filipino woman who is in a low economic status of the society, mostly marry only for money not of love, let us remember, in a basket full of fruits, there are few rotten ones.

    Tommy, what you’ve written had some truth in that and that is some lapses my people have, well, there are some days that are better and some days that are not…sorry.

  • tommy

    As for the girls I get pretty bored after a while with the Filipinas. I’m in my early twenties and i’m from Europe. When I spend 1 week with a Filipina girl I usually have the feeling that i’ve been married with her for 20 years and that’s it. Thai girls are a little bit more active and adventurous while Filipinas seem to be lazy. The average Filipino seems to be more vicious than the average Thai but again that’s just my opinion

    I got robbed by a homeless person in the Philippines. As I said street life is not as fun or safe in the Philippines as it is in Thailand. I spend alot of time outside in Thailand, eating at food stalls or just walking around, buy myself a beer and drink it somewhere in the streets or sit outside at a bar. If I do this in the Philippines (Cebu or Manila) the beggars will come, the food stalls in the Philippines are not as good as in Thailand and most Filipinos who speak good English and earn a good living can be very arrogant and “big headed”.

    I can not say that I prefer Thais over Philippine people because I like both and there are bad and good people everywhere but when it comes to “where to live?” then the Philippines is (outside of Manila) is cheaper than Thailand but Thailand is cleaner and has a much better infrastructure.

    Thai people are not all liars. Of course prostitutes aren’t always

  • tommy

    Thai girls are more feminine than Filipina girls. Thai girls like to have fun and talk nonsense while most Filipinas seem to be quite serious. I have lived in Thailand and the Philippines for over a year now and Thailand is better for living but you have to adapt to the language and several other things while in the Philippines you can just speak English.

    Thai girls are not all prostitutes. The tourists who complain about Thai girls but who only had relations with “prostitutes” are COMPLETE idiots. The only good thing about Filipina girls is their good understanding of Western culture and their English language skills. But I prefer the looks of Thai girls and the general environment in Thailand. Philippines is not as clean in the streets as Thailand and the “cheap or medium priced” local food in the Philippines tastes and looks like dog food. The majority of Thai girls are more beautifull than their Filipina couzins and they are both very caring. Just don’t get into a relationship with a bargirl… that’s just ridiculous.

    Living in Thailand offers you more luxury and security than you would be having in the Philippines. I really hate the beggars in the Philippines, Filipinos can be sometimes very unfriendly!!! But afterall the country is well priced and there are cute girls to be found but I do not like the street life in the Philippines, don’t like their food.

    Thailand is: “don’t worry be happy” while the Philippines is more: “drama”. That’s just my opinion. I like both countries but I prefer Thailand.

  • american pilot

    I have been married to a Filipina for 7 years. Everyone in her family is nice when I support the entire island. She constantly nags every moment of the the day. Definitely I would prefer Thai woman.

  • Moira

    Its a matter of cultural upbringing…Filipino women, liberated they may be, still value close family ties. Its one reason also that nursing homes are not in our vocabulary because we take good care of our elderly parents and grandparents until their death. We are simple people, deprive of wealth but rich in culture and values. We love our children so dearly, our husbands, brothers, sisters parents, uncles, aunties, nephew, nieces…we are sensitive of their needs both material and immaterial.

  • Peach

    Thank you for the words Dr. Smile and may I suggest you include that as an additional fact about Filipinas.

    And for those who are about to choose, think not about who has the better infrastructure or has the better internet accessibility, who is taller or who looks more like a model. Think about who has the better values and upbringing, who is more capable of loving and keeping a relationship and family tight cuz these things remains constant no matter how long it runs. It doesn’t grow old or depreciate it’s just getting better and better as time passes by. After all, these are the things that you are looking for in a wife right? And Filipinas are beautiful inside and out..that’s a fact.

  • Peach

    First, I would like to commend the author for establishing research like this although it’s very obvious that the result is so biased having Thai girls getting the most favors. But I am happy that comments and reactions favors most to Filipinas.

    I am a Filipina and for 6yrs I have been in love to this gorgeous Italian guy I haven’t met personally. He is not rich, just a regular employee in Italy, doesn’t even have enough money to visit the Philippines.

    Unfortunately he dumped me and married a Thai girl instead. For 3 yrs of their marriage he found out that he wakes up first in the morning and his wife remains in bed sound asleep, that she is not adventurous in bed too, that she had 3 orgasms and he doesn’t even have one yet, that she is not so good in self grooming and diet, that is so happy if you bring her to a restaurant that serves good food and forgot that he is with her, that she is closed to herself and doesn’t argue, that she doesn’t even care to ask him how is he doing at work, doesn’t send sms just to say i love you to erase the stress, that would rather watch Korean telenovela than have some sweet talk with him, would be so happy if he sleeps on the sofa than in bed with her just because he snores, in short a Thai girl who doesn’t really care for him.

    And so, maybe he realizes that I am different from his wife because he still wants me to communicate with him and doesn’t want to lose me. Many times I said goodbye but he would always take me back and doesn’t want to let go.

    Only now that I am in love with a Dutch that he finally let go of me.

    I am proud to be a Filipina and I am proud of my roots. I have strong family values that I can carry with me anywhere I may go. So people, still thinking who is the best?

    If you are having difficulty in choosing then I suggest you do another research on who has the most successful marriages – Thai or Filipinas. You’ll be surprised by the result.

    I am proud to be a Filipina.

    • I agree that Filipina women are some of the best.

      For the last 2 years I have only traveled to the Philippines (Makati, Cebu and Boracay). It is my favorite place at the moment, and the people are so friendly and speak perfect English.

    Excellent! It is really greatt to know that even poverty motivates them to do better…hats off to their undying spirit…

  • Moira

    Thanks CalgaryGuy, its true, my country is one of the poorest in Asia and yet poverty wont deter the Filipinos to make good with life. Poverty move us to follow the goal that we have and that is to be a hero to our family and to reach the top or the success by working hard. The pain that go with life made Filipino strive for success like a wounded soldier fighting for battle/the great cause and protecting its colony, indeed, we are rich with family values.

  • CalgaryGuy

    Where I’m from here in Canada, there has been a major shift in its multicultural image of late. Based on the 2006 Statistics Canada census data, one fifth of Canada’s population is foreign-born. For the first time in Canadian history, South Asians have become the country’s largest visible minority group, making up 25 percent of the nation’s visible minorities. I see many more Filipino’s moving here to make a better life for themselves. The Philippines is a beautiful country, and it is also one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia. Some eight million Filipinos work abroad, sending home $17 billion US in remittances to family members and loved ones. I’m also seeing a large social disconnect in the process however, with many loosing the qualities that make them so unique. What makes Filipina’s and other south Asian girls so coveted to me and others, is the down to earth nature many of them have. Along with that come strong family values, strong spiritual connections and many do work hard. For this reason, I would prefer meet and live in the Philippines with the one I meet, and enjoy the true essence of what makes them truly a one of a kind.

    Be it a Filipino or Thai, what matters most is the love and respect you have with each other in a relationship. I am a Filipino and unfortunately not all Filipinos knew literary English that well but they do understand simple day to day English conversation. And like all other races–there are 2 type of people in this world—the one who duped and the one are duped—its survival of the fittest after all. Therefore, you just got to be very careful in chosing who will place your trust in.

  • Filipina girls are renowned for their beauty.Filipino girls are a delight to be around because of their disposition and personality.Filipinas are understanding,patient and composed.Filipina girls are generous and naturally caring and supportive.Filipina girls believe in a one-man one-woman relationship.Filipina women put family first before money.Filipinas are excellent home keepers.Filipinas are well educated.Filipino girls are religious.

  • In Philippines,Marriage is a very sacred institutional.Women are highly conservative. Filipinos are said to have strong family ties.
    Filipinos made themselves exceptional from others is their strong respect for elders. Children are taught from birth how to say po and opo to teach them as early as possible how to properly respect their elders. Filipinos are also family oriented. They value greatly their families, which is always on top of their priorities. Filipinos are also happy people, always smiling and never forget to have a good laugh amidst the problems and hardships that come their ways. Filipinos are very respectful. They show respect to their elders by saying ‘po’ and ‘opo’ and kissing their hands. Filipinos are also religious. They devote time to reconnect with their God. They have strong faith, believing that problems and adversities in life will surpass with the help and providence of God. The Philippines in general has the strongest Christian influence in Asia Filipinos highly value the presence of their families more than anything. Filipinos are very sensitive to other people’s feelings. Filipinos find them very hospitable.

  • Pinay women may just be the best partner to spend the rest of your life with.Pinay have a unique beauty – both Asian and Latin, they are very hospitable and they are totally devoted to their husband, as part of the Filipino culture that they grew up in. They are very supportive and loving, not only to their spouses but also to their entire family.
