Miss Asia Pacific World Beauty Pageant

The Miss Asia Pacific International is the first and oldest beauty pageant in Asia. It began as a regional pageant in 1968, known as the Miss Asia Quest. Participating countries came from Asia and Oceania.

In 1985, the pageant changed its name to the Miss Asia Pacific Quest, to encompass countries not just in the Asian and Oceania region, but those of North, Central and South America with borders touching the Pacific Ocean.

The pageant took its present form in 2005, when the name was changed to Miss Asia Pacific International, to include countries all over the world.

The 37th Miss Asia Pacific International beauty contest was not held in 2008. Due to the lack of sponsors, participants, and popularity, Miss Asia Pacific International will most likely to be postponed to an unknown date and year. It is very likely, the pageant will not be held for another 5 to 10 years or longer.

Miss Asia Pacific International changed name to Miss Asia Pacific World, after Lawrence Choi took over the licenses.
