The Philippines is a country of diversity - brimming with colorful people living in colorful places. But not when it comes to the weather. There are only two seasons in the Philippines: wet and dry. But don't let bad weather keep you from having fun on your trip! A little Philippines travel guide will go a long way. CLIMATE CHANGE Climate change has affected the weather in tropical Philippines, too. There used to be a clear point when the seasons started and ended. Today though, Filipinos (and their visitors) experience unexpected weather changes: the sun could be shining warmly one moment, and heavy rain could be pelting down the next. But generally, the country experiences its warmest from April to October. The rest of the year is relatively colder because of the monsoon winds. On average, twenty typhoons enter the country yearly; the majority of which occur during the latter half of the year. LOCAL WEATHER Some places in the Philippines are known to have their own weather system - specially in mountainous areas. Weather could also be magnified in places near beaches or other bodies of water. It is best to keep updated with weather changes from local and international news. PAGASA (Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical & Astronomical Services Administration) is the government weather bureau. They publish hourly reports whenever a typhoon hits the country. BE PREPARED During your stay in the Philippines, always bring around your weapons against the elements. Sun block is good for preventing painful sunburns (specially for those with sensitive skin). Umbrellas can shield you from both the harsh sun and the pelting rain. Hats with wide brims or visors protect your hair and eyes. Sunglasses can help prevent the sun from damaging your vision. And fans can help keep you cool through the humid days. Keep these Philippines travel information in mind, and you will enjoy your stay in the Philippines come rain or come shine.
