Manila Weather

Best Time to Visit Manila

Manila weather is under a tropical monsoon climate characterised by two pronounced seasons: dry from December to May, and wet from June to November. The average yearly temperature in Manila stands around 27°C, while the average yearly rainfall reaches around 2,000 mm.

A tropical monsoon climate is not really pleasant in big cities due to the fact man-made buildings and the materials add weight to the already heavy atmosphere. However, as Manila is located close to the sea, it releases a bit of the pressure induced by high temperatures and high hygrometry.
