Cambodia Travel

Cambodia has long wowed visitors with it’s monkey-filled temples and beautiful beaches, but for those really willing to explore, this is a place that’s easy to get off track.

Find your own beat in the rural life of the countryside, where emerald green rice paddies and sugar plantations sway in the afternoon breeze.

Explore the southern coast of Cambodia and find a spattering of some of the most intriguing islands in Southeast Asia. The coast itself is a perfect golden hue, broken only by the occasional fishing village.

Find your way to the interior where you’ll find the Cardamom Mountains making up a small part of an otherwise enormous and lush tropical forest. Here you can find an emerging ecotourism sector with new outdoor tourist activities like wildlife spotting and ziplining cropping up each year.

Don’t miss a float down the Mekong River, where you can sit in a dugout canoe and search for the elusive freshwater river dolphins.

And finally, for those looking for culture and tradition, you can head to the Northeast of the country to meet the highland people and find even more natural beauty and fascinating wildlife.

Cambodia is still a yet-to-be-explored Southeast Asian Destination, especially when you compare it to the more touristic Thailand or Vietnam.

When To Travel To Cambodia

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.
