    Perhaps because they do not market themselves as well as Singapore or Malaysia do. There is a general sense of Phillipines being a very poor and unstable country.

    simply because our leaders are so busy finding ways how to get money surreptitiously , they're so busy with that rather than promoting the welfare of our country and not their pockets

    It has a reputation of having a poor infrastructure and very unstable with a lot of kidnappings and random violent events.

    Agreed with Qudsia and Claudin, actually philipine is good place to visit, but its all about how you represent your country, how you invite peoples to come and look the beauty of country, and even have to ensure their safety, security and great hospitality....that's something which make interest of peoples to visit philipine...!!!
