This article is about a defunct beauty pageant that ceased in 2007. For a beauty pageant that started 2011, see Miss Asia Pacific World.

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.

The Miss Asia Pacific International beauty contest organizers are planning to revive the beauty contest after many years. They will later announce the time, date and venue in coming months or years.

Titleholders[edit]

The Philippine Cycling Association held a Miss Asia pageant in 1965. Angela Filmer of Malaysia won the event, which took place in Manila, Philippines. However, this is not officially recognized as an edition of the Miss Asia Pacific International. The Philippines is the powerhouse of the pageant with four titles including back to back in 1982-83. The Philippines missed the semi-finals for only six times.
