Climate & Weather in Philippines


The Philippines is a tropical island. It has only two seasons: the wet and dry season. Of course, with the thousands of islands to discover, such as Cebu and Palawan, a summery feel is a requirement for the best trip to this gem in the Pacific. The dry season starts in late November and ends in May. The rainy seasons starts in June and lasts till October. September and October are often the typhoon season in the Philippines.

Although foreign visitors think that it is always summer in the Philippines, the Filipinos think and feel summer in April and May—the hottest months in the Philippines. The sky is at its bluest and the water at its clearest during this time of the year. During these months Tours on Cebu are amazing and Island Hoping Tours are spectacular. If you are visiting Philippines in other months, private city tours and local home-cooked dinners are some great ways to explore the beauty and local lifestyle of this country.

Seasons & temperatures in the Philippines

The hottest season in the Philippines falls in April and May, which is the best time to go to the beach or trek highlands. Locals and foreigners alike head to northern Luzon for its cool temperature. Baguio City, the summer and flower capital in the Philippines, is locked in the mesmerizing Benguet ranges. During summer, its temperature reaches 38°C and drops until 9°C degrees from November to February. For a trip with cooler temperature, it is best to explore the hidden secrets in northern Luzon or trek major mountains like Mt. Apo, Mt. Kanlaon, and Mt. Pulag to name a few. In major cities like Manila and Cebu, the temperature can be very warm, making you feel it is summer all year round.

Island Hopping Cebu!

Steph is a highly recommended trip guide for a number of reasons. She knows the ins and outs of places worth visiting in Cebu and understands the culture of the locals, thus proving that her experience, knowledge and understanding of the locality is quite extensive. Her ability to scour for last minute items that we forgot is a testament to her resourcefulness while the chocolates, camera and spray bottle with vinegar (for unplanned marine encounters with jellyfish and the like) have sufficiently given proof of her reliability - we didn't even ask her to bring these things! Lastly, she is a considerate and caring guide - one who answers inquisitive questions patiently, gives her clients ample opportunity to do their own thing but at the same time is available as soon as she's needed. She was very generous of her time that she gladly accepted our tour request with the shortest notice - on a Christmas holiday too!

So kudos to you Steph, I wouldn't hesitate to book you as our guide again. The tourism industry needs more dedicated individuals like you; I'd definitely would give the maximum number of stars to your rating for a job well done.

Cebu City Tour by Car

Dear All,

the tour with stephanie and the driver (a friend of stephanie) was a very good choice to make. We went to different places in cebu that i would never had found on my own. Stephanie and the driver had a lot of knowledge and where very friendly and flexible to change things on the spot. I would really recommend stephanie as your your tour guide in Cebu. Pick up from the hotel sit back in a nice car and enjoy the views and relax. I am so happy I did this tour and would take stephanie anywhere as my tour guide in the Philippines. sites we saw, Flower garden, temples , old Spanish house, fortress and a very good local lunch.

Summit to Sea Adventure!

We booked a tour with Stephanie for the local tour and add an extra for Oslob whale shark swimming, Kawasan fall canyoning, and Moalbaol Sardin run snorkeling ( these activities we found out that Steph can all organize with private tour and private big AC van for us after we talk with her and found our she is sooooo funny and interesting, plus she took fantastic photo!!! )
Strongly recommended to book her since this island girls know how to play where to eat and grab a drink and party! Most of all, she is very professional to the history, taking care of us since we are young girls (just like our Cebu sister) and she knows where to get close to the nature, swim in the best spot, really good at taking picture, we miss her after saying goodbye to her at the airport.

Highly recommended!
強烈建議有預計要到宿霧自由行又想要玩很多但是不想自己搞得很累的旅客(尤其在宿霧不管是鯨鯊游泳,卡瓦山林瀑布朔溪,莫爾堡沙丁魚潛水,跳島浮潛皆為體力活,Stephanie可以幫你量身計畫你想要的時間與所有行程,他很細心會在出發前都會一一確認,也是一個很專業的導遊,不管事歷史風俗民情,或是哪裡有好吃好玩好買它全部一手包辦)
價錢比起外面或是其他網站的套裝都還要划算,
相信我,別再猶豫了! 跟Stephanie 暢玩宿霧沒錯
