The Philippines has over 7,000 islands and is known for its beaches, crystal-clear seas, amazing wildlife, great culture and culinary delights. Manila, the bustling capital city, is a charming and lively place rich with history and stunning landmarks.
Begin your adventure with a stay in the capital, home to the UNESCO World Heritage site of San Agustin Church built during the Spanish colonial rule in 1571 in Manila. Take a short flight to Bohol, home to pristine beaches, white sands, and spectacular sunsets. Journey through the Chocolate Hills by Quad Bike before cooling off at Pangas Waterfalls. Enjoy lunch by the banks of the Loboc River and island hop to Balicasag Island before flying onto El Nido, with clear water lagoons, white sand beaches, and hundreds of fish and coral species in our Essentials itinerary.
Get up close with the magnificent whale sharks in our Explorer itinerary.
The dry season, which lasts from November to April, is the perfect time to visit the Philippines. Though it’s the most crowded season for travel, you’ll enjoy mild weather and will find it easier to get around.
During the wet season (or low season), which lasts from May to October, you can expect very hot and humid weather in the Philippines. Typhoons may strike and upsetting travel plans can be an adventure—especially if you find yourself in need of a place to stay. The rain falls primarily at night, so during the day, you can explore one of the many islands or secluded areas within your island destination.
