Traveling takes a LOT of work and planning. There is always that need to be prepared for absolutely everything that comes your way. You must be prepared at all times-whether going to a nearby beach, to another state or even another country, preparation takes so much time and effort-especially when you are planning to visit a different country wherein you are unaware of the culture, tradition or even the weather-like the Philippines.

The Philippines is a beautiful country, but if it is your first time to visit this country, here are some tips that can hopefully help you in being prepared.


The Philippines has one of the most unpredictable weather and you as a foreigner must be plan the season in which you will visit the Philippines, If you are planning to go from March to May, make sure that you bring a lot of sleeveless tops and shorts because it is summer, and you should expect so much heat. From June to October, prepare your UMBRELLAS because this season is totally different from summer, it is the rainy season, in which you have no choice but to stay indoors, unless, you would want to join the Filipinos who take a bath in the rain. But if you visit the Philippines from November to February, then you will definitely get a chance to see the beauty of the country because this is the BEST season! Calm, cool and cold.


Manila is known to be the texting capital of the world because you will not find a single Filipino without a cell phone on their hand, especially teenagers who are basically addicted to texting, truly,you will feel so left out if you did not bring your cell phone with you. But on the plus side, you won’t have to worry about not keeping in touch because, again, everyone has a cell phone.


Fiestas and parties are kind of a big thing with Filipinos because when they say eat, you will eat. During Fiestas in the Philippines, you will not go hungry because the streets will be flooded with different variations of food. This usually where the Filipino trait of hospitality kicks in. it is truly a MUST to prepare your stomach to be filled with FOOD!
