The Philippines Pavilion celebrated Philippine festivals in photographic and audio-visual displays, and aquariums of tropical fish and coral found in Philippine waters.

Guests were welcomed to the bright sea and sand of many a Philippine beach resort courtesy of large aquamarine floor-to-ceiling vistas of back-lit slide transparencies, coupled with the shimmering effects of a capiz shell ceiling.

Further inside, a recreation of how to live in the tropics featured in a display living room, replete with cane furniture and other settings, representing Philippine style. Another segment recreating a vista of traditional craft work and artisanship completed the Pavilion interior.

At the Pavilion exit, one could enjoy
live performances of Philippine dance and music in the open-air theatrette, whilst snacking on Philippine culinary delights.
