* ''Theatre/TheSultanOfSulu'' is set in the southern Philippines at the turn of the 20th century, but Sulu partly counts, as it had largely escaped the 300+ years of Spanish rule that drastically changed culture in the rest of the country, and as a result has remained a Muslim kingdom, similar to its counterparts in modern-day Malaysia and Indonesia.

Indonesia much more than it did the rest of the Catholic Philippines.

Generally portrayed as that chain of islands, roughly a dozen large and a gazillion smaller ones, between the FarEast and the LandDownunder, Indonesia is a country that works as a more exotic version of [[SimSimSalabim India]] because not too much is known about it in [[EagleLand the English/US-centered part of the world]]; as it was a Dutch colony until 1948 it's way better known there. Want a story with modern day [[ImAHumanitarian cannibals]]? Exotic rites with components of magic? Delicious, but mouth- and ass-burning cuisine? Set it in Indonesia. Sea monsters, modern day pirates, volcanoes, and more can all be found in this tropical island chain. One thing is for certain -- the area is lousy with tigers and treasure. Oh, and Komodo dragons.

* The Filipino series ''Amaya'' and ''Series/{{Indio}}'' could count, as they largely focus on the precolonial kingdoms and societies that inhabited the Philippine archipelago prior to Spanish rule; in precolonial times the pre-Filipino cultures shared many traits with the larger kingdoms in the Indonesian islands.
