Technically, there is really no “summer season” in the Philippines—or in any other tropical climate country in the world, for that matter.
Summer, being one of four seasons, is only experienced in temperate regions like in northern Asia, Europe, the United States, and Australia. Their summers are characterized by warm temperatures and dry conditions.

Sine the Philippines is close to the equator, it receives a relatively consistent amount of sunlight—and overall warm climate conditions—throughout the year, and the change in daytime is insignificant.

So the Philippines doesn’t really experience summer. At least, not in the way that other countries in temperate regions experience them Instead. , the country experiences annual changes in climate patterns that we have come to call “seasons”: the dry season and the wet season. – source : GMA News

But Why is it that there are many foreign people /tourist saying that we always have the best summer destination?

There are a number of places you can visit during your stay here in the Philippines. You can either stay in some provinces in Luzon and get in love with the rice terraces/paddies in Benguet, enjoy the Sky Ranch in Tagaytay, indulge yourself with the breathtaking view of Batanes and much more.
You can also jaunt the islands located in Visayas and Mindanao.

Officially, we herald the start of the dry “summer” season once the cool northeast monsoon winds or “Amihan” finally wane and are replaced by the warmer Easterly winds. This typically happens some time in the middle of March.

So what terms should we use to describe the seasonal change in weather? In Filipino, we use tag-init or tag-tuyot. In English, we can use “dry season.” But, inaccurate though it may be, the term “summer” is here to stay: no other word rolls off the tongue in quite the same way, especially when used in the context of summer classes, summer getaways, summer breaks, and summer outfits.

Thus, “summer” is just a term we now commonly used to of feel the season – if not of the season itself.


Bring out the sunscreen and the beach mats, ‘cos summer season is finally here. And if you are a sun chaser, beach bum, thrill seeker, honorary mermaid, or simply a weary soul looking for a break from daily routines, summer (and this article) calls upon you now to heed the call of adventure.

I would like to thank the following travel enthusiasts for making my life so simple with the help of your awesome photos. ❤️
