How to plan a trip to philippines

The Philippines is the 7th most populated Asian country and the 12th most populated country in the world. The Philippines is defined by its emerald rice fields, teeming megacities, graffiti-splashed jeepneys, smouldering volcanoes, bug- eyed tarsiers, fuzzy water buffalo and smiling, happy- go-lucky people. The Philippines consists of more than 7000 islands, and at certain times of the year it will feel like you have them all to yourself. The typical island boasts a jungle-clad, mountainous interior and a sandy coastline flanked by aquamarine waters and the requisite coral reef. But you’ll find plenty of variations on this theme, from marooned slicks of sand in the middle of the ocean to sprawling, overpopulated mega-islands like Luzon and Mindanao.

How to Enter :-

Air: - Since most people fly to the Philippines and most flights land in Manila, Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Paranaque is likely to be your first taste of the Philippines.

Sea: - It's possible to travel by sea between the Philippines and nearby parts of Malaysia and Indonesia. However, schedules and routes are very liable to change so it's best to be flexible in your plans.


 Climate and Best time to visit :-

The Philippines’ weather has become more unpredictable in recent years, but January to May usually brings the best weather to most of the country. However, this is also the high tourist season. Foreign arrivals are highest in January to March, while Filipinos hit the road en masse in April and May for their ‘summer’ holidays
