Asian airlines are bracing for continuation of rough weather everywhere (in Asia that is). If you check top Asia destinations and their weather forecasts online, you will see that it's generally cloudy or rainy everywhere. Low-pressure areas are just plaguing everyone so those who are thinking of escaping Manila's rains might want to think again. After all, even Davao is projected to experience scattered thunderstorms.
But if you are going out of the country, for a planned vacation or business trip, make sure you get adequate international travel insurance. The hassles it protects you from outweigh the minimal cost. And of course, be mindful of health advisories. Alerts for Swine Flu is still up all over the world.
