The beaches are one reason, but another factor in the rise in popularity of the Philippines as a travel destination is because of the turmoil in both Indonesia and Thailand caused by natural disasters and political unrest.

  1. I live in Salcedo Village in Makati. Now only are more Australians visiting here in the Philippines but many are choosing to live here and set up businesses. The restaurant Chocolate Fire is a good example of a good Aussie restaurant.

  2. If the people who write this could only understand there is only ONE reason they attract visitors from the USA and Australia – that reason being that it is CHEAP and their money goes a LONG way – then they would prosper MORE. Their own countries offer great destinations, it IS only about money! Understand that and you will prosper.

  3. @shane – you aren’t being bitter are you? coz traveling to the phils. if you’re from australia is definitely not the same traveling to india, brazil and the USA. you surely wouldn’t spend the same amount of money traveling separately to these places, would you?

  4. Please don’t argue.. Philippines is really a wonderful islands. There are many reasons why many foreigners are now living here.. Our people are friendly and very hospitable.
