April is one of the most popular times of year for a visit to the Philippine­s. Expect hot sunshine and great diving conditions in the holiday resorts of El Nido, Boracay, Mactan and Siargao.

The good weather continues throughout April and into May, but as the country edges towards June the rain makes a comeback, lowering temperatur­es slightly.

In June the wet season takes hold, starting in the north and working its way south. Flash flooding and landslides can occur so check before you head off on a trip.

As with everywhere else in southeast Asia, the rain turns the landscape lush and green and the Chocolate Hills of Bohol lose their brown hue.
