A Great Way to Beat the Winter Blues!
Are you tired of short winter days? Are you tired of freezing weather? Then our climate could be just what you
are looking for.
The Philippines has a tropical climate characterized by high temperatures. Even during the coolest months the
temperature seldom falls below 25° C (77° F) and the average annual humidity remains between 71% and 85%.
Here you will find three seasons:
1. The Rainy Season (June to September)
The South West Monsoon
that brings heavy rain to most of the country dominates the rainy season. The rainy season officially starts when
each of the five Pagasa (Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services
Administration) stations record at least 25 millimeters of rain for four to five consecutive days. All these
stations lie on the western side of the country.
Keep your umbrella close by during this season.
The rainy season is also the typhoon season that can last until November. The Philippines is hit by an average
of 6 to 7 typhoons each year.
The rainy season, however, has several advantages: it lowers both the humidity and the crowds! In
addition, many resorts (including Bali Hai) offer "Rainy Day Promos" or low season rates where
you can get accommodation and meals at discounted prices.
2. Cool And Dry (October to February)
During these months the
North East Monsoon takes over, lowering both the temperature and the humidity. This is also the high tourist season
throughout most of the country.
3. Hot and Mainly Dry (March to May)
This is the transition
period during which the dry North East Monsoon gradually gives way to the moist South West Monsoon and heralds the
arrival of the rainy season.
We suggest you bring lightweight cotton clothing that
you can wear for most of the year. You may need some warmer clothing at night, or if you intend visiting Baguio,
known as "The Summer Capital of the Philippines."
And don't forget your umbrella!
