also, are dogs welcome in Manila and can you walk dogs safely around your house/apartment? We have a small dog that needs a lot of walks.
There are a lot of family activities in the Philippines. There are parks, shopping malls, carnival, and etc. However, if we talk about safety, it is not as good as Dubai. You need to be more careful and observant on the people around you. Dogs are always welcome and you can have a walk together with your pet.

Singapore. Public transportation is world class. Students from Manila and Singapore can go to Harvard depending on all the factors so that can be had if you have the money in either location. BUT Singapore is1st class and Manila is 1st class only in certain locations but not country wide. Medical care is cheaper in Manila but the care in Singapore is world class. The Singapore train service (MRT) is really special not so in Manila...maybe someday (they are working on it) but not now. The big issue is the cost of living. Very reasonable in Manila...high end in Singapore. If all things are equal...Singapore.

I lived in Dubai for 36 years. I've also spent time in Singapore and Hong Kong. Nothing, repeat nothing compares to Dubai. You must set your standards much lower in everything, security, schools, shopping, life style etc. I can only suggest that you spend time in each location and decide for yourself. The big issue with Dubai, as you know, is the cost of living and the really unbearable summer heat. We are retired in Davao and we love it here, but my wife and I still miss Dubai, which will forever be our favourite place ever.

I would choose any of those over Manila. I love hk a lot but then youre looking at higher cost of living.
