When to visit?
The tropical islands of the Philippines stay this disco ball of weather throughout the year. They are all over the place. Sun shines clubbed with raining shifts. Everything is found right here. Even so, there are two general seasons. The dry and the wet seasons. From about January to June you can expect relatively drier and sunny weathers. But from December onwards the rains might grace your visit. The climates are generally towards the warm sides, but water comes from all sides here in the Philippines.
Average Cost per person
Most of the countries in Southeast Asia are considered pretty low. The costs in the Philippines are small too. This is in comparison with most of the exuberant European rates. The islands you visit will decide what your budget will come up to. Activities like island hopping would be better if you go with groups. The entire trip of about 6-7 days here should not go beyond 50,000-60,000 rupees. Though it could go up according to your luxury settings.
The process of acquiring a Visa for the Philippines is not a very tough process. The residents of about 151 countries can enter without even getting a Visa. Please do check with the embassy if your country comes under this. You can register for 30 days at the most. You require a passport that has been made at least 6 months ago. They are also very serious about the outbound and inbound flight tickets so you should keep a note of these very carefully.
