Philippines has two seasons. The wet season is from June to October. The dry season is from late November to May. September and October are typhoon season in Philippines. Due to its climate of tropical rainforest, tropical savanna, and tropical monsoon and humid subtropical, high temperature and humidity and plenty of rainfall still play main roles even in the dry season of Philippine. And during the wet season, it doesn’t always rain torrentially and days can be hot and sunny, with short, intense downpours at dusk.

When is the best time to visit Philippines?

January and February are the coolest months and good for travelling, while March, April and May are very hot: expect sunshine all day and temperatures to peak at a broiling 36°C. As well as higher humidity, the wet season also brings typhoons, with flights sometimes cancelled and roads impassable. 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. The southern Visayas and Palawan are less prone to this danger, and Mindanao sees less rain during the wet season.
