  • 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:

Cambodia is a tropical country, and the sun can get quite fierce. Especially if you are doing a lot of walking around visiting temples, swimming or other outdoor activities, you will get a lot of sun exposure. It is advisable to bring a hat or other headgear, and sun block.


  • Recommended:
