When is the best time to visit the Philippines? It depends on the places you plan to visit. There are only two seasons in the tropics: the wet and dry seasons. The former begins in late May to November while the latter is between December and May. However, climate change has been adjusting the calendar. You can now experience strong downpour in April and scorching days in July. It's tough to even try predicting weather in the Philippines even with only two seasons.
Here's a tip: expect anything. You may be prepped for a hot Philippine weather in April, but still pack rainy day essentials. No worries. You can still go parasailing even under a gloomy Boracay weather.
What's the best month to travel to the Philippines? Here's your travel guide to help you decide.
People nowadays definitely love to travel, and for good reason. Traveling allows people to experience different cultures and cuisines helping them to broaden their perspectives. But as with all things good, there’s also a bad side to it — the tons of waste most tourists leave and the environmental disaster these wastes can cause. So unless we all go green and travel green, our children won’t be able to experience how beautiful our planet truly is in the long run.
One of the blessings of being in an archipelago is the many ways of going around. You can choose land, water or air travel. In the Philippines, you can drive a car, or ride in trains, buses, taxi cabs, motorized bikes, tricycles, and vans. You can also take a boat, ferry or a ship. For air travel, you may fly through commercial plane or chartered plane. As Boracay reopens this October, choose the travel option that suits your budget and thirst for adventure.
Boracay felt more like a second home to your barkada. Every year, you take time out of your busy schedule to hang out on your favorite island. With the Boracay closure keeping you from traveling to Boracay, you’re probably starting to miss your barkada. Here’s a list that may remind you of your favorite Boracay barkada.
Everyone wants to be the first to experience the new and improved Boracay. Have you made your preparations yet? Beyond the usual travel preparations, make sure you add responsible tourism in the mix. If the Boracay closure taught us anything, it’s that we can lose the things we love if we do not take care of them. Read on to learn about the preparations you should be making for a more eco-friendly travel!
