Cambodia is an utterly fantastic country with many rich experiences.

The temple complex of Angkor Wat, characteristic cities like pleasant Siem Reap and vibrant Phnom Penh, lush landscapes with mountains and jungles, an amazing food culture, the Mekong River, rice terraces, chalk-white beaches and crystal-blue seas are just some of the experiences to be had on a tour to Cambodia.

But when is the best time to visit Cambodia?

Read here to find out when you should travel to Cambodia.

Cambodia’s climate

Cambodia is a magical destination all year round.

The country is in the tropical climate belt, so you can expect hot temperatures that do not change much over the course of the year.

The climate in the country is marked by tropical monsoons, dividing Cambodia’s seasons into a dry season and a rainy season.

The dry season: November – April

Cambodia’s dry season is in the period from November to April.

This is the period when most people visit Cambodia – and with good reason.

The dry season is characterised by long periods of sun, comfortable, warm temperatures and warm wind. It is relatively dry in the country, but there may always be rain in-between. April is typically the hottest month of the year.

There are always many exciting things to experience in Cambodia, but it is particularly essential to go on a beach holiday to one of Cambodia’s coastal towns or tropical islands during the dry season.

The rainy season: May – October

Cambodia’s rainy season is in the period from May to October.

During the rainy season, approx. 75% of Cambodia’s annual precipitation comes down. There is less rain in the first months of the rainy season, but it worsens during the last months of the season, when much more rain falls. However, the temperatures remain hot.

This season also sets up for an utterly fantastic holiday where it is possible to bring back many experiences in your luggage.

For example, experience how nature becomes lush and bright green and have some unforgettable experiences with Cambodia’s attractions, which are less visited in this period.
