This was first aired in 2002, during then Department of Tourism Secretary, Richard Gordon. For me, this is one of the best TVC to highlight and promote the Philippines.

Interestingly enough, this was labelled as the “Asia” edition. A slightly different “Europe” version is available for viewing at

    WOW, I like this commercial. I showed it to my mom & she liked it too; we both think it should be aired here & around the States. They’re always promoting countries like Ireland, UK, & other European nations, but it seems like they shy away from the Asian ones.

    Anyway, there wasn’t a shortage of American travellers in Thailand. Every gap-year-ing teenager is in Khao San Road…
