Is Manila the new Bangkok?

After reading an article from a local newspaper about new places to jet to around the region (i.e. Asia), I've got a newfound interest in the Philippines, specifically Manila. After all, it houses the third largest mall in the world. And I can imagine the cornucopia of delicious street food.

I've also just discovered Manila Style (via La Femme), documenting really quirky fashion from the city. It does remind me a little of Bangkok's avant-garde weirdness. And what with budget airlines all over the place, travelling there from here isn't going to cost any more than going to Bangkok.

Ahh, I just love living in Southeast Asia. Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Manila...hmm what's next? Vietnam, Cambodia, Jakarta?
