Liam Hemsworth is ready to jump back into the public spotlight.

Miley Cyrus' fiancé arrived in Manila, Philippines, on Friday for a slew of promotional appearances, his first official public outing since rampant rumors first surfaced that he and his ladylove were headed for splitsville.

The Manila trip comes on the heels of Hemsworth's solo getaway to Australia, where he hunkered down with his family.

The 23-year-old is visiting the Philippine city as brand ambassador for local clothing line Bench, which he signed up to endorse last summer.

"He's finally here! Our #GlobalBenchsetter LIAM HEMSWORTH is now in Manila! Lets all give him a warm Pinoy welcome. #LiamHemsworthLovesBench," Bench's Twitter feed announced Friday.

The clothing brand also posted an Instagram photo of the actor doing an interview.

The Hunger Games star looked chill in a dark V-neck shirt and jeans as he sat on a couch, a white bracelet on his right wrist.

Earlier in the week, the actor spent time on Phillip Island in Australia, where he was spotted running errands with his mom, Leonie, and hitting the beach with his brother, Chris Hemsworth.

A source exclusively told E! News that Liam appeared to be in a "relaxed mood" during his stay.

His 20-year-old fiancée, on the other hand, has remained in Los Angeles, where she was snapped catching up with pals.

The two, however, are "not giving up" on their "rocky," relationship, an insider exclusively told E! News, adding that the couple "both want it to work."
