It has been well-established that the country of the Philippines is one of the well-known holiday destinations in the Southeast Asia region. Among the many tourist destinations that are popular in the Philippines is Legazpi or officially, the City of Legazpi. Being the provincial capital of the Albay province, Legazpi is also the regional center and the biggest city that can be found within the Bigol Region. As such, one can expect the city to be more developed and built harmoniously with nature and plentiful attractions one can look forward to visit when in town.
Legazpi, in a similar manner to other regions around Philippines and nearby countries in the Southeast Asia region, is classified as having a tropical rainforest climate in which dry season is shorter or almost negligent whereas rainfall is normally heavy throughout the year. The hottest months are usually around April, May and June. Therefore it is always a peak time to come to Legazpi in these months. Meanwhile, the off-peak season is between September to November, where there are high chances of rain that reduces the amount of time that could be spent going out to explore the city. While accommodation and ticket prices tend to drop this time, visitors should check the weather reports before going to the town around this period.
