The cool season is cool with a little rain, which brings a lot of conveniences to travel, so it is the peak season for tourism. Due to the lack of sufficient moisture from the rain, the vegetation will be slightly dry and sparse. As it is the high tourism season, there will be more tourists, and every cost will be more expensive. The dry season is just during the locals' summer vacation. There are fewer tourists traveling around the Philippines in this season so it is suitable for a quiet and peaceful holiday. The Philippines in the rainy season is actually not so terrible as you think. Generally speaking, it often rains at a certain time of the day and the rain won't last too long. Therefore, after the rain, the air becomes very comfortable, and the sun is still brilliant. The most important thing is that the number of tourists is small and the price is affordable.
