Enjoying this island destination need not break your bank. Here’s a tip on how you can save a great deal but still feeling like a happy islander.

Things You Should Know

1. Low, High and Peak Season – Low and high season is determined by the wind direction blowing into the island.

Low Season – May to October, hot and humid weather, frequent heavy rainfall, lower prices on accommodation, cheaper plane fare

High Season – October to May, moderate temperatures and little or no rainfall, back to regular prices on accommodation

Peak Season – Christmas, New Year, Chinese New Year, Holy Week, 10 to 25% premium on accommodation

Despite low season providing you lower accommodation rates and cheaper plane fare, most of the tropical depressions occur during low season. If you plan your vacation during this time, make sure you provide leeway in your schedule in case your flight will be cancelled. Other than that, you can enjoy the island as much as you want.
