Travel and live in Philippines

Due to work reasons, I have lived in Philippines for over one year now. When I came here, I think Philippines is very similar as China in 1980s. Many young people everywhere, and most people live in very poor condition. However, there are also modern places in Manila, such as Makati, BGC, etc, high-end shopping mall, and beautiful beach resort, which shows great wealth disparity.

This pic shows large slums area in Manila.

This pic shows high modern buildings in Makati, the outstanding one is PBCOM, which is built in around 1990.

Based on my perspective, there are many weakness, but have a bright potential future.

For the weakness part, I just want to mention about the transportation problem. The land is private owned in Philippines, it’s hard to expand the road which is far less enough to accommodate the fast growing population and traffic. There are always traffic jam every where, you have to waste a lot of time by car.

And the railway and subway system is also very poor, which can not meet requirement for traveling.

This pic shows train in Manila, which only run in short distance an is very narrow.

I don’t want to say too many bad things in this page about Philippines, maybe we can discuss in detail about this. Instead, I want to say I have see a lot of bright potential side. Philippines has already and will be one of the fast growing country in Asia for the following reasons I think:

  1. Large young population: the average age of Philippines is around 25-30. And most of them can speak good English. The workforce here is a treasure for multinational companies.
  2. Hard working, but not very diligent: Since most people here are poor, they can do the hard work just for money. Like Chinese people in 1980 or 1990.
  3. Great nature resources: if you just see Philippines map, you will be amazed at how many island and how long beach line Philippines has. There are plenty nature resource to be explored and many beautiful places for traveling.

This is just a summary of what I think about Philippines from my traveling and living here.There’s chance that I will introduce more details in the future.
