The Best Time To Visit: November-May
The absolute best time to visit Cambodia is between November and May. This is the dry season when the country sees the least amount of precipitation. You’ll likely have some nice sunny weather, particularly in January and February.
The temperature will still be nice and balmy, but in the highlands, you might want a thermal top for the evenings.
In reality, you can visit Cambodia year-round. Each season has its pros and cons and you can expect humid and hot weather all year.
If you come from June to October, you’ll end up in Cambodia in the wet season. But don’t worry! During this time, the jungles and rice paddies are at their greenest and most lush, and even though it does rain a lot, it usually comes in short bursts of deluge with sunny patches in between.
