Best time to visit the Philippines

The rainy season starts around May until October, strongest months are July, August and September. Well if you are coming during the rainy season, it’ll be raining a couple of days during the day but you will usually see the sun almost everyday. I would avoid those rainy months if I can, but no worries you will find sunny days and it will be less crowded in some places that you visit in the Philippines.
