NO summer in the Philippines

summer!... summer!... summer!...

Just noticed that a lot of Filipinos consider this time of the year as summer… yeah, summer is the warmest time of the year but hey, technically there is no summer in the Philippines

In a tropical country like Philippines, there are only two seasons, the wet/rainy and dry/hot seasons...

Using temperature and rainfall as bases, the climate of the country can be divided into two major seasons: (1) the rainy season, from June to November; and (2) the dry season, from December to May. The dry season may be subdivided further into (a) the cool dry season, from December to February; and (b) the hot dry season, from March to May. (PAGASA)

While America (and other country) has four seasons, summer, winter, fall/autumn and spring… and oh, you should know that summer in America is from June to August (Northern Hemisphere) and December to February (Southern Hemisphere).

Conclusion: vacation time in the Philippines is not summer but hot dry season… ;)

And yeah, that’s the reason why I avoid the term summer… lol


(use your search engine... lol)
