May’s weather in details
Locations at higher altitudes – such as the Cordillera region, and coastal areas such as the resorts of Palawan and Siargao experience slightly more bearable temperatures but essentially it’s hot, hot, hot throughout the country. Towards the end of May, with the wet season just around the corner, rainfall is not uncommon, but the rains help break the humidity making life a little more comfortable. In a party mood? Then don’t miss the vibrant Flores de Mayo festivals that take place across the Philippines during May. Every region organizes its own celebrations which involve thousands of colorful flowers and a variety of musical and cultural events.
