  • Trip Grade:

Easy - Suitable for travellers with an average level of fitness and mobility


  • Best Travel Time:

There are two seasons in Cambodia, wet and dry. From early May to the end of October is the rainy season. It often rains heavily but for short periods of time, mostly later in the day or during the night, after which the sun returns. The rain cools the air and freshens up the lush green of the rice plantations. It is cooler in the dry season, which runs from early November to early February, when it starts heating up again, building to the hottest month of April. So the best time for rain lovers is between May and October and from November to early March for those who like it dry and cool.


  • Trip Tips:

A good way to get around Siem Reap is to rent a bike. You can take a bike ride and get out and see the stunning Cambodian countryside. Although it is relatively safe to bike in Siem Reap, traffic laws are not strictly obeyed, and you need to watch for cars driving on the wrong side of the road and running through red lights etc. Always wear your helmet, and be alert!


  • Recommended:

When in Battambang, visit the largest local market, Phsar Nath. You can also take a walk along the Sangke River to see what the local inhabitants are up to.
