Philippines Ladyboy Guide
From Transex Info
The Philippines is a Southeast Asian country in the Western Pacific, comprising more than 7,000 islands. Its sprawling capital, Manila, is famous for its waterfront promenade and centuries-old Chinatown. Intramuros, a walled city in colonial times, is the heart of Old Manila.
If you are a fan of ladyboys (transgender women) then anywhere in Asia will be great for you and the Philippines is no different. Philippines have the proably one the biggest consentration of ladyboys in the world, probably only Thailand has more. Even if geographically very close to Thailand, Philippines is a completely different country. First, it is a Roman Catholic country and their religion does not accept transsexuals. However this has never been a hindrance for Filipino ladyboys to pursue their goal of transitioning. And being unrecognised from their religion does not even stop them from believing in their religion. Ladyboys in the Philippines are not as free as ladyboys in Thailand. It’s not that they are prohibited or it is against the law, it’s just that its not as rampant as in Thailand. Although you can see ladyboys in the Philippines walking in the street, in the malls and in any type of bar, this is still not as many as in Thailand. But Filipino ladyboys are very passable most of the time you can hardly tell if they are ladyboys or not. They are naturally petite and very good looking, and because of years of migrative fluxes from Spain and USA, they can happen to look less Asian than their Thai sisters, and they also speak usually very good english. They may not be fluent but at least they can all communicate properly, because english language is officially taught at school here. The Filipino term for ladyboys that you have to know is: bakla (in tagalog, which is the official language of the country).
