Hi,and welcome to the site. Your pretty spider is one of the gold silk orb weavers, family Araneidae, one of the sub family Nephilinae. Nephila pilipes would be my closest guess.

Nice find.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is a Golden Silk Orb-weaver, likely Nephila pilipes. I don’t know how common it is for them to have bright red stripes like that though, so filing to genus.
