When to go to the Philippines

With so many islands, covering 300,000 square kilometres weather patterns do vary depending on the island group you are visiting but in general the dry season falls between November and April. The temperatures are at their highest between March and April and the cooler months (we are not talking cold here, just not quite as hot!) are December to February – the most popular time to travel. The wet season does fall between May and October when you’ll still enjoy hot sunny days but should expect the odd shower, however during this time you will get more for your money as the hotel prices are far lower. The locals tell us that May is one of the most wonderful times to visit as it is in a shoulder season so you may have the odd shower but in general the weather is beautiful and there are so fewer visitors you’ll have it almost to yourselves. August and September would be the wettest months and best to avoid, unless you are heading to Dedon Island in the east for surfing which is at its best when the swells are higher!
