    No. The Philippines was ruled by the Spanish for 400 years, approximately 1500 - 1900. During that time a lot of Spanish blood got mixed with the Filipinos which makes it quite nice. Technically there is a huge difference between the Thai and Filipinos and not just in looks. The Filipinos attitude and outlook on life is different and some would say better.

    They look similar, but Filipinos have shorter legs and a rounder face. In general Filipinos tend to be a bit chubbier than the rest of Asians and Thais are mostly very slim. Food culture is healthier in Thailand for sure and it shows in people.

    Some times it is hard to tell. Just like in the Philippines. After a military operation. They can tell some of the dead are not Filippine. But they are not sure were they are from. Then there area differences. Manila persons would. But Davao more like those from Japan. Do to old trade routs. You often have areas in towns. Korean India, Japan. Do to trade & family connections that go way back. Well before the Spanish came.

    Somtimes yes, I have known Filipinos to have Thai people speak to them in the Thai language in Thailand assuming them to be local.And to be mistaken as Thai in the UK by many people including Thais .Much like I a White British guy have been mistaken as a local in Poland and somtimes mistaken for Polish by Brits and Poles in the UK alike. Similar racial features is the reason in both cases and the fact that there is a range of looks in those countries and an overlap of looks.Of course the Philippines and Thailand like The UK and Poland are many miles apart geographically, have different unrelated languages, different cultures and histories etc.. But look similar yes, Some West African groups get mistaken for each other and some East African groups get mistaken for each other too, it's pretty common.
