The best time to visit Manila is during the drier months of January to April. Though temperatures are high during March and April, still it is a good time when you wouldn't need to tackle the rains. The dry season is the best time when you can hire a bike and roam through Manila, do not forget to visit Intramuros, which is the oldest part of the city. The wet season in Manila lasts from June to November. But it does rain in December as well. As Manila is a booming city, one can visit it year round, but the wet season tends to be hot and humid, which restricts tourists from going around the town. Some streets in Manila also get flooded during this time. Manila is also prone to cyclones, so tourists should skip the wetter months, which are also considered off-season for tourism in the city. If you do visit Manila during the wet season, do make sure you check the weather reports to see the severity of the rains.
