Best Time to Visit The Philippines

Whenever you visit the Philippines, you can be sure of a tropical climate which means warm temperatures all throughout the year. The Philippines has a hot and humid tropical climate with a wet season from May to October and a dry season from November to April. The best time to visit the Philippines is during the dry season, although even during the wet season it doesn’t always rain hard and days can be hot and sunny, with short, intense downpours in the late afternoon. January and February are the coolest months while March, April and May are very hot. You can expect sunshine all day and high temperatures and humidity. The wet season is the time of typhoons. The first typhoon can hit as early as May, although typically it is June or July before the rains really start, with July and August the wettest months. Temperature can go lower in mountainous regions such as the Banaue Rice Terraces.
