Specialist "PHILIPPINES" wholesaler catering exclusively to Australian Travel Agents
The Philippines, perfect for Australian Tourists
Robert Graham, founder and Managing Director of All About Asia Pty Ltd.
This website is the product of almost 40 years experiencing the many unique destinations of the Philippine's islands. They say there are 7,107 "named" islands in this west pacific nation and I have visited relatively few, maybe a bit less than 1,000. Yes, I do have my favourites and opinions on all that are reflected by our listed tour suggestions. The Philippines does not get as much publicity in the mainstream newspapers and magazines but maybe that is because we like to keep some secrets and surprises for first time visitors. Please read on and choose your preferences then ask your travel agent to contact All About Asia to get a total costing for you. We were around long before the internet and continue to look after the most discerning tourists. We have long term associations and contracts with all the major full-service airlines that fly from Australia to the Philippines along with hotels, resorts and the best tour operators. Unlike online agents we also have a Manila office which means we can make sure our guests are looked after during their stay with a 24/7 phone number.

About the Philippines
Located in South East Asia it consists of 7107 (named) islands so it obviously has a lot of beaches. Many of the islands have different foods, customs and languages making the country very diverse and therefore interesting to the traveller. The people are very friendly and most welcoming. English is spoken as a second language to the majority which makes it easy to get around. It was a Spanish Colony for almost 400 years and then the only United States of America colony for almost 50 years making the Philippines more westernised than other countries in the Asian region. As it is located in the tropical zone it is warm to hot all year round. With its relatively dry winter from November to June and summer monsoon rainy season from July to October.
