When is the best time to visit Cambodia?
The best month to visit Cambodia depends on the temperature you prefer and what you plan to do during your visit.
The dry season is between November and April. November is popular with many tourists as the temperatures are cooler at around 25°C. It’s a great time to visit if you want to stroll around the plentiful monuments, markets and temples as it’s less crowded. It’s also the month that the Cambodian Water Festival usually takes place. It’s traditionally celebrated over three days with concerts and boat races in Phnom Penh.
Cambodia is also busy in December and January, but it’s dry and a perfect time for visiting the southern islands. Temperatures begin to rise in March and April to 30°C or more. In March and April, it can be particularly humid for sightseeing. Khmer New Year is celebrated in April, and it’s one of Cambodia’s most significant festivals.
For some visitors, the rainy season between May and October can be their favourite time of year as it’s less crowded and the surrounding countryside is green and picturesque.
