Best Time to Visit the Philippines

The Filipino year is predominantly split into a wet and a dry season, which for travel purposes conform to the low and the high season.

Plan carefully, because the wet season brings dangerous typhoons, landslides and disrupted travel, whereas the dry season brings clear skies and sunshine.

May could well be the best time to visit the Philippines. You might experience clouds towards the end of the month, but it’s going to be dry for most of May.
