The Philippines vs. Indonesia | Cultural Differences

 The Philippines vs. Indonesia | Cultural Differences

The Philippines and Indonesia are two of my favorite countries in the world and I’ve spent a combined 9 months in the Philippines and Indonesia over the last half-decade. They are both amazing countries that I adore so much, and I will always be coming back in the future.

While the Philippines and Indonesia have plenty of similarities, I wanted to focus on showing you the differences because it seems that a lot of people get them mixed together.

Of course both the Philippines and Indonesia has stunning beaches, delicious foods and smiling faces — but when you look deeper at their culture, they are actually opposites!

Which country do you enjoy more? The Philippines or Indonesia? Did I leave out any key differences? Please share your comments below!
