Information on the Philippines and Manila

Climate and clothing

The climate is tropical with temperatures ranging from 21oC to 38oC (70oF to 100oF). The rainy season extends from mid-May to mid-November, when it is advisable to have a light raincoat or umbrella. Humidity is high (65%-90%) all year.

Light clothing is recommended. Offices, hotels and shops are fully air‑conditioned and visitors may sometimes feel the need for a light jacket or equivalent.

For representatives attending the opening ceremony and plenary session on the first day of the Regional Committee, a business suit or equivalent attire is expected. However, on succeeding sessions, informal attire may be worn (in light of the green initiatives being practiced in the Regional Office).
