When it comes to SE Asia, Thailand and the Philippines are the two most popular destinations for single men looking to date a beautiful, younger lady.
I’ve lived in both countries as an expat so I know the differences between Thai women and Filipino women to give you an unbiased comparison of both types of girls.
Hopefully, this article will help you focus on either Filipinas or Thai girls depending on your personal tastes and travel goals.
Thai women are mostly shy, reserved girls who open up once they get to know you better. Once you gain their trust, they are awesome to be around and make you feel a lot younger than you are. Their religion is Buddism and the average Thai girl has a lot more respect for men than Filipina girls do. Also, Thailand is the biggest tourist country in the world so Thai girls have more access to better-paying jobs and more opportunity than the average Filipina. This makes Thai girls more appealing to foreigners for long term relationships. Thai women treat you like a king and you won’t have too much drama or problems unless you get involved with a golddigger.
Filipina girls are more social, loud-mouthed and negative as a whole. They know about American culture and foreigners so they are much easier to approach and flirt with. However, there is a lot of poverty in the Philippines so the girls are often desperate to find a foreigner with money to support herself and her family. Filipina girls know about this so a lot of them have a negative attitude towards “life” because they think it’s unfair to earn so little money in their country. Filipinas are more likely to ask for money and use a foreigner like an ATM machine. You could end up spending a lot of money dating a Filipino girl so realize this before you get into a long term relationship.

SE Asian girls mostly share similar looks but there are some main physical differences between Thai girls and Filipinas.
Thai girls are more white skinned and thin than Filipina girls because most Thai girls avoid the sun like the plague. Their diet is also much healthier too so you won’t see as many thick girls in Thailand. Their facial features resemble Chinese girls and they are short and very petite on average. Of course, you’ll find some thick Thai girls who are incredibly sexy but they are fewer and far between.
Filipina girls are generally short girls with brown skin and they look more like Mexican girls. The diet in the Philippines is much worse than Thailand so a lot of Filipinas are heavier and thicker than Thai girls. Most girls eat nothing but meat, fish, and rice all day so they gain weight as they get older. Still, Filipinas have more curves than Thai girls and you’ll see a lot of girls with big booties while Thai girls have less “junk in the trunk”.
Overall, Filipinas have more curves than Thai girls so I give them a slight edge on physical attractiveness. This is a personal preference but I saw a lot more DTF girls in the Philippines who were dripping with sex appeal. Thai girls are cute but they don’t really scream “take me to the bedroom” like Filipino women do.
There is a major language barrier in Thailand since most Thai girls speak poor English. Most girls know a few words but it’s difficult to have a deep, thought-provoking conversation with a Thai girl unless you learn Thai. Some guys prefer the language barrier because they are sick and tired of arguing with western women. It does feel nice to take a break from the English language.
Filipino women speak Tagalog but almost everyone speaks English due to the colonization of the Philippines by America in the 1800s. Not every Filipina speaks perfect English but it’s easy to communicate with Filipina girls. However, many Filipinas do use curse words and more slang than Thai women. I’ve also heard many Filipinas use the “N word” or say “negro” whenever they talk about a black person. Filipinas are more likely to use negative language, which limits their long term relationship appeal in my opinion.
SE Asian women are expected to take care of the home so many men are looking for a girl with solid cooking, cleaning and childcare skills.
Thai women are great cooks who specialize in preparing healthy meals with lots of vegetables, sprouts, spices, and a smaller amount of fish & meat. I felt much healthier eating Thai food and my energy levels were more stable. Not only is Thai food delicious, but Thai food helps you lose weight and feel younger. When you enter a Thai home, your Thai girl will tell you to remove your shoes in order to keep the place clean. Thai girls keep their homes a bit cleaner than Filipinas who act lazy when it comes to cleaning behind themselves.
Filipino women love to cook local Filipino dishes with lots of meat, fish, and rice. They cook too much fried food and don’t include enough fruits & vegetables in their dishes. The Filipino diet is unhealthy for most foreigners and you’ll notice more overweight foreigners in the Philippines due to the abundance of cheap, unhealthy food. Filipinas are lazier in general and aren’t as clean or health conscious as Thai women. They make good mothers but the abundance of street children in the Philippines means you must choose your Filipina wisely. There are lots of Filipinas who abandon their kids after birth so beware.
Winner: Thai Women
SE Asian women as a whole are more interested in pleasing their man than western women who expect you to do all the hard work (gotta love feminism).
Thai girls are super cute but they are very passive and quiet in the bedroom. Some Thai girls are wild in bed but the average Thai girl is a conformist who is pretty reserved in the sexual department. They make good wives and girlfriends but if you’re looking for a wild one-night stand, you may prefer Filipino women for a night of bouncing off the wall sex.
Filipino women are pretty wild in bed and it’s pretty shocking considering their small size. The brown-skinned girls are the wildest and a young Filipina girl has enough sex appeal to make you break a sweat and need plenty of sleep after a couple of sessions in the bedroom. Also, the abundance of thick Filipina girls adds a different dynamic for men who like the extra cushion for the pushing.
Winner: Filipina Girls
After dealing with Thai women and Filipino women, I think Thai women are better for long term relationships while Filipino women are good for casual dating and fun relationships.
Most foreign men would be happier with a Thai wife while Filipino women make good girlfriends and casual hookup partners. Divorce in the Philippines is illegal so marrying a Filipina is a lot harder than you think. The only option is annulment and it’s very expensive ($5,000+).
These are just my personal experiences and I’d be happy to hear your thoughts in the comments!
