Best Time to Visit Cambodia

If you have been making holiday plans and have been wondering the best time to visit Cambodia, then you have to take note of the weather, especially the heat and the rainfall and decide accordingly. The good thing is that Cambodia’s climate system is not complicated. There are two distinct seasons and so it’s actually possible to travel throughout the year.

Since it is typically warm the year around, there isn’t really a best time to go to Cambodia as you can go whenever you want. But the other thing to keep in mind is trying to avoid the crowds as there are always a lot of visitors to Angkor Wat, the famed monument of Cambodia. The best time to avoid the crowds and to go when prices are low is from May to October. Let’s see the best season to go to Cambodia.

Dry Season

The dry season in Cambodia is from October to April and there’s a hot wind that blows throughout the country. Typically, the months from November to January are quite cool, although by April the weather becomes very hot. Many people consider the dry season to be the best time to visit Cambodia and hence there are many tourists around.

Those who want to visit the Angkor Wat during April usually prefer early morning and late afternoon tours. Also, the roads are in good condition in regions like Mondulkiri and Ratnakiri and so, journey times are also short. In the south, Kep and Sihanoukville are popular at this time as the sun shines brightly making beach visits palatable and fun.

Wet Season

During the wet season, which is from May to October sees more than 75% of Cambodia’s annual rainfall takes place. While the rainy season temperatures are between 25 and 27 degrees centigrade, the early months, from May to July are quite hot and the rainfall is infrequent. During the later months of the wet season, the rain becomes more incessant especially in the coastal and rural regions.

It becomes impossible to travel to areas like Mondulkiri and Ratnakiri during this time. But travelling in this season can also be quite delightful as the country is lush and green everywhere. The Angkor Wat looks brilliant in this season as the moats are filled with water and there are hardly any visitors around.
