Manila and Bangkok both has over US$ 200 Billion GDP (nominal) which is bigger compare to the entire singapore. And I'm sure Jakarta has a bigger GDP nominal than Bangkok and Jakarta since it has a bigger population.

please give us some links to explain your viewpoint.I even cant believe your data,as HK only has about 180 US$ GDP (nominal) and Seoul about 200 US$ GDP (nominal).

^^ there's no way Manila's Nominal GDP is over $200 billion! :lol: The nominal GDP of the Philippines has not even reached $200 billion yet...
------------------------------------------------------

the National Capital Region (Manila) has a GDP (PPP) of $138 billion (31% of total GDP)
the whole "metropolitan" Manila area (Urban+adjacent areas) has a GDP (PPP) of $248 billion (50% of total GDP)

the GDP per capita in this area is around $13,900.
National GDP per capita is only $5,100.
----------------------------------------------------

Bangkok's GDP (PPP) should also be over $200 billion.

According to this article (http://www.unhabitat.org/istanbul+5/statereport1.htm), Bangkok contributes 38% of Thailand's GDP...if we hold this as true...then Bangkok's GDP (PPP) is $207.4 billion.

And according to this article(http://www.pegasus.or.id/Reports/88a) Indonesia Shipping C17.pdf), Jakarta contributes 16.3% of the total GDP...again, if this is currently true, then DKI Jakarta's GDP (PPP) is $147 billion.
--------------------------------------------------
to summarize

Krung Thep (Bangkok) $207.4 billion
DKI Jakarta $147 billion
Manila (NCR) $138 billion
-----------------------------

2005 GDP per capita (PPP)

Krung Thep Bangkok (10 million) $20,740
DKI Jakarta (13 million) $11,308
Manila NCR (11 million) $12,545

Your figures are wrong. You probably used GDP figures at PPP value, which is irrelevant for international comparisons. At real exchange rate value, the GDP of Thailand was only US$161.7 billion in 2004 (source), so Bangkok GDP cannot be US$207.4 billion. If your 38% percentage is true, then Bangkok GDP would be 0.38*US$161.7 billion=US$61.4 billion. For Manila, if your percentage is correct, then the GDP of the Manila National Capital Region would be US$26.2 billion. For Jakarta, again if your percentage is true, then the GDP of Jakarta is US$41.9 billion.

Then we get:
Singapore: US$106.8 billion
Bangkok: US$61.4 billion
Kuala Lumpur: ???
Jakarta: US$41.9 billion
Manila: US$26.2 billion

For comparisons, here is the top five in the word:
1- Greater Tokyo: US$1,313 billion
2- Greater New York: US$847.6 billion
3- Greater Los Angeles: US$699.8 billion
4- Osaka-Kyoto-Kobe: US$577 billion
5- Greater Paris: US$506.7 billion

And here are the top three Chinese cities:
1- Hong Kong: US$163 billion
2- Shanghai:US$120 billion
3- Beijing:US$69 billion

People use PPP often, so I'd go with c0ke's figures.

@normand: welcome :D
No, PPP is used to compare GDP per capita, but not to compare total GDP. When you buy an Airbus aircraft, you buy it in real dollars, not in PPP dollars. If you start to use PPP comparisons, you'll end up with crazy results. For example, according to c0kelitr0 above, the PPP GDP of Bangkok is US$207.4 billion, which would be higher than the GDP of Hong Kong! Completely silly. Nobody in their right mind would say that Bangkok has more economic clout than HK. Just ask any businessman. That's why for international comparisons you need to use real exchange rate values.
