But before you anything else, here are a few tips to help you pack the essentials for your trip!
Sunglasses, Swimwear, and Sunscreen
Known to have the most pristine beaches in the world and some of the most scenic views from rooftop pools, take advantage of your time in the Philippines and spend time under the sun.

With a tropical climate all year round, expect warm and humid weather when you land. Pack in light clothing such as cotton tops, shorts, flowy trousers and dresses for a comfortable trip. On the other hand, the Philippine is also known for its rainy season, which lasts for roughly half the year. Don’t get caught in a sudden downpour, always make sure you have a light jacket or sweater to keep you warm and dry.
Pics, or it didn’t happen! More than posting those selfies or mouthwatering food shots in social media, cameras of all kinds are really handy in documenting special moments during your trip. Something to keep you happy, inspired, and motivated until your next vacation.
Travelling with mobile phones, laptops, tablets, and cameras in tow? Don’t forget to bring your chargers along! Locals in Manila can attest to the challenges of traffic in the city. Best to have your gadgets with full batteries, lest you get stuck traveling from one point of the city to the other.
Be prepared for surprise getaways, shopping sprees, or sporting adventures. In Makati City alone, one can find the most stylish shopping districts in Manila. Enjoy your visits to luxury stores and quaint shops with lifestyle finds you have to bring home. Or, pack in a pair of rubber shoes for a hiking trip to the nearby mountains. With countless of leisure activities to choose from, the Philippines is your playground.
