Philippines ranked 8th in World Happiest place list

After being declared as the Selfie Capital of the World, Philippines’ social media domination continues. In a recent study by Jetpac Travel Guide in tune with the celebration of International Happiness Day, some 150million Instagram posts were check and graded according to their “smile scores”. And the result of the study showed that Latin American countries has the most happiest people. Brazil got the top stop with the score of 60.8 followed by it’s neighboring countries in the South America.

While the top 5 was dominated by the Latins, Asia wasn’t left out of the top 10 as our very own Philippines ranked 8th with the score of 44.8, the only Asian and South East Asian country to enter the top 10. I would like to attribute the result with the culture since Philippines like most of the Latin American countries where all colonized by the Spaniards back then.

This is not the only time where Philippines was dubbed as one of the happiest as there were other surveys before where it also placed in the top 10. This only proves that it’s really more fun in the Philippines hence we can always smile at everything.
