Hello! I believe the month of July is a rainy season for the Philippines, probably not the best of times to be on the beach or is it? I would get to know some places good to travel for a rainy month like July. Would highly appreciate the assistance to explore the beautiful country.

The rainy season starts in June and extends right through till October with the risk of serious typhoons in the area. If you do decide to go anyway, I'd advise you to avoid taking a ferry anywhere because they often capsize in the storms which erupt around that part of the world during the rainy season.

Bali would be a better choice since July is the driest month. It's a beautiful island as others will attest to I'm sure.

yes July is within the rainy seasons of the Philippines.. but this does not mean that it rains throughout the country... The Palawan island generally has better weather where it is sunny even during a typhoon in Manila... during this period.. the rains and typhoons generally come from the Pacific and move northwest.... so the islands on the Pacific side are usually affected but not Palawan.. and the Mindanao island..

so.. I'd recommend going to Palawan during this period or somewhere in Mindanao like Zamboanga or Davao... they should have better weather during this month...

I was on the island of Negros in the Visayas last rainy season and I spent plenty of time on the beach. It was normally sunny in the morning and wet in the afternoon or night time. Bear in mind that the Philippines has a tropical climate so it can rain at any time of the year, especially if you are near a mountain. Tropical climates and mountains produce a lot of rain!

Rainy season has started early in philippines this time around... May 1st week itself... But once the rain sets in, its difficult here to travel around, mainly on road... Recent typhoon left the route to Banaue rice terrace almost inaccesible from manila...

It also depends on luck.. as Last week for full rainy but this is full sunny...

But December is the best time for Boracay, Palawan and other beaches... But you need to book in advance...

[b] July is rainy season in the philippines but you can visit Mindanao, especially southern part coz it's typhoon free, try to visit Samal Island and ComVal Beaches or even Camiguin;) .

The rain is such a blessing. Some places are hot as hell right now.
