The Best Philippine Travel Ideas This January

The following are some of the greatest Philippine Travel Ideas This January.

Due to lower airfare, several overseas Filipino workers will return to the Philippines in January instead of December. The holiday season is over, but this month is great for those who prefer not to mix with the crowds. However, for those looking for a lively setting, there are a variety of festivities in the Philippines in January, including Ati-atihan, Kuyamis Festival, and Sinulog Festival.

Unfortunately, in December 2021, super typhoon Odette devastated the Visayas and part of the Mindanao region, where the majority of these festivals are held. This is the strongest typhoon to strike the Philippines in 2021, creating major power disruptions and affecting millions. The majority of the grand events scheduled will be postponed or cancelled while the region is still recovering. If you still want to go on a cultural or religious excursion, you can go to events in the north, and if you wish to relax on the beach, there are other locations in the north that have the same stunning atmosphere as the Visayas.

Because January is a cool and dry season, it is an excellent time to visit the highlands and enjoy the mild climate.
