Travel Tips

  • Dress for the weather - hot! Light clothing is ideal year-round, and absolutely during the hot and dry months from March to May. Temperatures average from 78°F/25°C to 90°F/32°C. Mean humidity is at 77%.
  • Never leave home without your rain gear, umbrella, and heavy clothing during the rainy months from June to October as well as when setting out to the mountainous areas.
  • When shopping in a public market, it is perfectly acceptable to haggle for thecheapest price.
  • English is the most widely spoken next to Filipino/Tagalog, the national language. Learning the basic local phrases may come in handy. Over 111 local dialects are spoken in the country.
  • Comfortable yet sturdy footwear are best, as traveling the islands will often involve some walking.
  • When headed to the remote areas, come prepared with an insect repellant and even your own water in handy containers. Always have the island map with you.
  • Prepare to hop in a jeepney, tricycle, or pedicab - exotic modes of land transport that are the most commonly available for going around. Always bring loose change when taking public transport.
  • Know the transport schedules. Some destinations are only being serviced intermittently, not to mention extreme weather conditions that will affect these schedules.
  • Air-conditioned taxis should cost PhP25 on the meter. An extra PhP2 will be added for every 500 meters
  • Casual clothing is acceptable inside churches and business offices. Dining establishments and hotels impose no dress code but shorts and slippers are deemed improper.
  • For formal occasions, the traditional Barong Tagalog, the Philippine national costume for men, is just as suitable as the suit-and-tie.
  • When traveling by car, be mindful of the number coding ordinance for vehicles that is being implemented strictly in selected cities.
  • Do not miss visiting during the summer, when there is a concentration of major festivals, celebrations, and events.
  • Adopt to local customs; accept local differences. The Filipinos are divided culturally into regions a total of 16, at present, each with its own distinct traits and traditions.
  • The Philippine monetary unit, the peso, is generally preferred for financial transactions. Money-changing shops are available in key cities and towns.
  • Tipping is expected for many services. The standard amount is 10% of the total bill. Tipping is optional on bills that include a service charge, which is often 10% as well of the total bill.
  • Be sure to sample the endless variety of native delicacies and local cuisine, which differ in every region. The Philippines is made up of 7,107 different flavors that you will want to take home with you.
