    • Highest spenders were respondents from Australia who spent an average of US$3,636 on their last trip, followed by the Saudi Arabian (US$3129) and Egyptian (US$3072) travelers.
  • The availability of good deals (70 percent), natural scenery (69 percent), political stability and good weather (both 66 percent), and new destinations (65 percent) emerged as top factors that influence travelers’ choice of destinations.
  • On average, respondents are planning to make four international trips in the next two years, with 11 percent more respondents intending to travel in the next two years, compared with the last two years.

What other destinations in Asia are worth visiting?

I traveled last week in the Philippines for two weeks and had a blast. Philipines is such a beautiful country with wonderful people.

I then visited Hong Kong but this time I want to land somewhere in Asia. I was thinking Shanghai or Beijing or maybe even Tokyo but I guess its too expensive. Then there is Korea and a bunch of others in the area.

But the end destination is Manila so I just wanted to know some great places to visit that one place might have over the other. Thanks.
