Manila Weather

Manila is a tropical country -- so there are only two seasons: wet and dry.  The weather and temperature is best between January and March when it can be somewhat cooler and less humid. If you are touring, it is best to avoid the rainy season in July and August as flooding in the city is not unheard of and the humidity tends to increase.

287 degrees Celsius (80 degrees Fahrenheit) is an average temperature throughout the year, with humidity spiking during the wet season.  Nights are rarely cold.
