January - April

A brilliant time to visit Cambodia, with hot dry weather, sun-drenched beaches and clear blue skies - all day every day. It will start to get really hot in April, but all in all its a fantastic time to visit.

May - September

Tropical rains will come to all of Cambodia from May through September, although this is often a welcome break from the dry heat of April. It won't rain all day every day, and the lush green landscapes will return making it in an exceptionally beautiful time to visit.

October - December

One of the best times to visit Cambodia is just after the wet season, when the landscapes are green and beautiful, rice paddies shimmer with fresh water and the warm, dry and sunny days return.
