Mabuhay literally means \"Long Live...\" but it\'s what the people who welcome tourists say. \"Welcome\" literally translated would be \"Maligayang Pagdating.\" Or you could simply say, Masaya ako na dumating ka. That would mean, I\'m happy that you came. Or Masaya ako na dumating kayo, which is I\'m happy that you (plural) came.

If it\'s welcome in response to a thank you, \"Walang anuman.\"
