CORON TO MANILA

When it comes time to depart the Philippines, the most convenient option is to fly from Coron to Manila, which takes around 1.5 hours.

From Manila, there are daily international flights available, onwards to your next destination.

BEST TIME TO VISIT THE PHILIPPINES

The best time to visit the Philippines, weather-wise, is between April and July when temperatures are hot and there is barely any rainfall.

This is also the high season in the Philippines, so expect to see many tourists during these months.

I recommend planning your 3 Weeks Philippines Itinerary on the shoulder months of the high season between November and March which sees a bit of rainfall but usually only lasts for a couple of hours and the rest of the day is sunny.

Try to avoid the typhoon season in the Philippines which is typically between August and October.

  1. We would love to visit the Phillipines but do not want to go to touristy places. Can you recommend any islands/beaches to visit and stay and avoid the crowds?

    Reply
    • Yes, Romblon, Tablas, Carabao and Camiguin Islands are relatively untouched and amazing! All of these guides can be found on the blog. Enjoy!
