You may not be able to explore all of the 7,000 tropical islands of the Philippines, but there are some you just can’t miss. Cast away on the white beaches of Palawan, dive with whale sharks in crystal clear coral waters, roam through the colossal rice terraces of Banaue, scale active volcanoes, or paddle board through lush green rainforest; find your own way in the Philippines.
When to visit the Philippines
The Philippines have a tropical climate, and May through to September brings heavy bursts of rain and the odd typhoon. For the best chances of keeping dry, visit between November and April.

Travel Philippines alone?
Pretty easy! English is widely spoken in the Philippines, meaning you’ll rarely get lost in translation whilst navigating public transport, booking boat tickets, ordering food or finding your way to your hostel. A good idea would be to book an adventure tour where you’ll meet other solo travellers. There are so many friendly backpackers in the Philippines, you’re bound to also meet plenty of new friends in a hostel. We recommend buying a local sim card when you arrive, so you can always stay connected.
