Composed of over 7,100 islands, the Philippines is strategically located in Southeast Asia and is readily accessible to the different capitals of the world. Its three main islands are Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
Manila, Cebu, Davao, Clark, Subic, and Laoag are the international gateways, with the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Manila as the premier gateway. It is served by more than 30 airlines, which fly to different cities around the world. NAIA has three separate terminals, so it’s important to note which one your flight uses.

The Philippines has a tropical climate, with heavy rainfall from June to August, cooler temperatures from late November to early February, and very sunny summers from March to May. Regardless of the season, it tends to be humid all year round, so lightweight clothes and especially cotton are recommended.
Local currency is the Philippine Peso (PHP). Money changers abound, especially in shopping malls or commercial buildings in the business districts. Credit cards, particularly VISA and Mastercard, are widely accepted.
