Why the U.S.

Historical Ties with U.S. – Filipino culture is most Americanized among its Asian neighbors

Philippines was the U.S.’ only colony in Asia and fought alongside the U.S. during World War II

Many Filipino veterans and their families moved to the U.S. after the war

Filipino middle class who migrate to the U.S. before the mid-70s were professionals who have become successful

Fil-Ams ask family and friends to visit and usually shoulder their travel expenses

Why the U.S. (continuation)

Most Filipinos have at least one relative residing in the U.S.

Filipino tourists are heavily influenced by what they see in the movies, in magazines, and in photos that relatives send from the U.S. and also want to see and experience these places.

What Filipino Tourists Spend on:

Shopping in bargain outlets for apparel and footwear (each household member back home receives a gift called “pasalubong”)

Shopping in supermarket for foodstuff to take back home (at the end of the visit)

Filipino tourists arrive in the U.S. with the prescribed two pieces of luggage that are within the weight limit, and depart the U.S. with an extra box or two of goodies for the family awaiting his/her return. (The tourist is usually a “she.” )
