Infrastructure is fine to me in Philippines. Just order a uber and go to a destination close to my apartment. Hell sometimes I even walk. If I lived in Philippines and had to go to work everyday during rush hour then yea, infrastructure might would matter. But on a short smash trip, naw. 

Prices are comparable, esp when you are talking about a short trip. If you were living there long term you can certainly get cheaper apartment deals in Thailand. I found a nice new apartment in Manila on Airbnb for 15 bucks a night last time. You can find food for 1-2 dollars in Manila. Nightlife though I found was more expensive in Bangkok. 

I think there are more and varied nightlife options in Manila. You got Makati, the Fort, Malate, Quezon City, Pasay etc. Each place with various bars and clubs to choose from. 

Seems like in Bangkok people resort to Hooker freelance spots or harder to pull ONS places like Route66. 

I am not an expert on BKK nightlife so, I wont say for certainty which is better. But Manila nightlife would be hard to beat in my opinion.

For a smash trip, I mainly only care about

1) Easiness of girls

2) Number of options of girls

3) Cost of coffee, lunch, cinema and nightlife

4) Nightlife options

5) Language barrier

If you use Uber, you will end up spending a lot more money on transportation. And Uber doesn't really help during rush hour. In Bangkok you have the MRT and BTS that you can use to go on dates or let the girls use to come to your place. It's cheap, fast and relatively efficient, even during rush hour. If you do want to take a taxi, you can just easily flag one down and get a good price thanks to the taximeter that is being used by almost every driver (unlesst you look like the biggest idiot tourist or try to get one around Nana). No need to order an Uber and wait 10 mins until it arrives.

Infrastructure to me also means cleanliness and walkability of the streets, as well as different activities you can do during the daytime. Bangkok never gets boring because thanks to the BTS and MRT you can go to various different parts of the city and do different stuff (go to parks, get a massage, watch some muay thai, go to a market, etc). Manila is more like Jakarta where you hang out  within a radius of 1-2km from your apartment most of the time because it is a pain in the ass to travel longer distances and there is not much to do. Ok for a very short trip but I wouldn't want to spend more than a week living that life.

In the Philippines you can find cheap food, but it is much harder to find and doesn't taste even remotely as good as the cheapest food in Bangkok.

Thanks to the BTS and MRT you can also save a lot of money when it comes to accomodation. You can get an AirBnB in On Nut or somewhere else a bit outside and still be in the city center in less than 30mins. If you are staying for at least a month, you can also rent out a short-term apartment for 300-400$ a month. Haven't found those so far in Manila. VAT is also cheaper in Thailand by 5%, btw.

Nightlife in Bangkok is by far the best in Southeast Asia. You can party hard 7 days a week. Just because most foreigners stick to Sukhumvit 11, doesn't mean there isn't anything else. You got multiple good clubs filled with hot girls - Demo, Beam, Route 66, Ce La Vi, Sing Sing. Yes, it might be harder to pull a ONS from there, but is that really necessary? Just grab her number and bang her on the first date. Unless you have absolutely no time, I don't see a problem with that. And if you do want a ONS, you can still hit up places like Khaosan, Sugar or Levels where your chances to get laid are very high. In fact, I think Khaosan Road is the easiest place in the world to get a ONS with a 5 or 6 and sometimes even a 7.

I am really curious about the Manila nightlife now. Granted, I am absolutely no expert on that, but from what I have heard, read and experienced myself, it really isn't that great. Or has it improved a lot in the last 2 years?  Can somebody drop some names of decent clubs and bars that make Manila nightlife good?
