Top definition. A person who is especially interested in foreign cultures, languages, and people. This usually develops through education and research about the varied accomplishments--artisticlinguistic, political, martial, architectural--of cultures not their own. Unlike such specimens as the Wapanese or the rice queenxenophiles are not motivated by jungle fever, yellow fever or spice fever. An Orientalist may be a xenophile, though not all xenophiles are Orientalists.
Thirty minutes and many more hoardings later you hit Metro Manila, the city centre, where more finance awaits you. Bank branches with state-of-the-art automatic teller machines nestle next to run-down cafes and pawnshops; advertisements for the latest mortgage offer, credit card or personal loan are hung in windows, painted on walls, flown from flags. These may be worrying times for banks in much of Asia, but not in the Philippines. Business is booming, and bad debts are well under control, at least for now. Competition is thriving too.
