Accommodation in Philippines
If you’re eager to visit an island paradise that hardly any other Asian country can match, a trip to the Philippines is sure not to disappoint. Inhabited by humans for more than 60,000 years, the 7,000-plus islands that compose this archipelago are home to a culture that many nations can’t hold a candle to. And with a wealth of cheap flights to Philippines offered here on Expedia.com.au, there’s never been a better time to travel to the “Pearl of the Orient.”
When to Visit
The tropical climate zone in the Philippines creates a yearly cycle that experiences only two distinct seasons. The wet season, which spans from May until October, still offers plenty of sunshiny days, though the complementary dry season generally provides conditions that make for more-favourable visits. The coldest months of the year, January and February, are a great time to travel to Philippines resorts, but the following three months are considered by many to be the least comfortable time for a trip here because of the chilly temperatures.
What to See and Do
Regardless of how you like to spend your time, you’re guaranteed to find some exciting adventures to undertake once you land amid these incredible islands. After checking into your Philippines accommodation, you’ll find there’s seemingly no end to the amount of activities the ocean and other local bodies of water have to offer. Surfing, snorkelling, and scuba diving are popular activities in places like Boracay Island, while simply laying out on the beach is usually an option, too.
Aside from all of the water-based ways to spend your time, there are a ton of historical sites to see, such as Rizal Park, the San Agustin Church, and Fort Santiago. And if you’d rather spend your time trekking through the local wilderness, Chocolate Hills and the Mayon Volcano are two must-see spots that bushwalkers will love.
