Help w/ Trip to the Philippines!

I'll be going to the Philippines in mid-June to mid-July. I just want to know how the weather is going to be like there during those months. I heard they dont have seasons like us here (spring, summer, fall, winter) soo I'm curious as to know how the weather will be. Also, I'll staying in Baguio and planning to go to Boracay .. maybe stay in Manila for a day or two. Any good/new spots in Baguio? I've been there before but its been years so I'd like to know, also Boracay. Manila .. I've never got the chance to go around there. I like to shop so any nice shopping places?

Hello! Im a Manilan and We have two seasons only..the dry and wet.The dry starts on March and ends in May then the Wet from June to August,the best time is during dry season which is the summer season here where u get to experience lots of festivities..
Try the BellChurch in Baguio and Session Road for shopping and thres a huge chinese church there..
If your shopping for clothes, try Makati for good designer clothes..for good prices try this place-DIVISORIA, its the best and money's worth

Hello there!

Baguio has a lot to offer: the top tourist sites there are Mines View Park, where the local "Igorots" may be found. For horseback riding, you can go to Burnham Park.

Restaurants that I highly recommend are: 1) Brod Pitt (A Grill) this is beside the Pink Sisters Monastery. If you like grilled seafood, this is definitely the place!
2) Cafe by the Ruins - a very romantic place for dessert and coffee.
3) Camp John Hay
