When is the best time to visit Cambodia?

In general, Cambodia stays warm throughout the year.

The rainy season is from mid-May to early November and you can typically expect short bursts of very heavy rain during the afternoon or longer downpours overnight rather than endless rain every day. The rain offers welcome relief from the humidity and high temperatures at this time of year and during the day there’s usually plenty of sunshine in between the showers. The wet season is the best time to visit Tonle Sap Lake, the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia.

Cambodia’s dry season is from mid-November to early May. During these months you can expect cloudless skies, very little rain, pleasant temperatures and lower humidity, making it a great time of year for sightseeing at Angkor Wat or relaxing on the south coast’s beaches and islands.

The dry season is the most popular time to go to Cambodia, however the rainy season isn’t necessarily as bad as you may expect, and has the bonus of fewer tourists. Depending on what you want to do during your time in Cambodia, tourist numbers may be a more important consideration than the weather.
