Before you travel to Cambodia
Quick introduction about Traveling in Cambodia
Cambodia is a nation that engages travelers on a number of levels. You can learn the art of tranquility from a saffron-robed monk, and then practice it on a sandy beach. You can see the temples that have been ruins for centuries, or those like Angkor Wat that stand tall today. You can see fields that speak to a haunting history, or visit a village without ever leaving your boat. Cambodia tours offer the rare opportunity to see a country that is steeped in tradition but still firmly modern.
Unique experiences awaits in Cambodia
Do not miss the Angkor Wat sunrise ➝
Angkor Wat, located in the province of Siem Reap, is one of the most important archaeological sites in all of Asia. It is the site of a number of Cambodian temples, the most stunning and important of which is the Angkor Wat.
Angkor Wat is notable not only for its historical significance, but also for its aesthetic beauty. Initial design for the temple began in the first half of the 12th century, under the reign of Suryavarman II. Built as a place of worship for the king, it still bears many of those regal elements. It is particularly noted for the harmony of its design, which incorporates sandstone and laterite into beautiful towers shaped like lotus buds.
Watching the sun rise over Angkor Wat, and the dawn spread its rosy fingers between the axial galleries, is one of the quintessential Cambodian experiences.
Sail to the floating village of Kompong Khleang ➝
If you take a tour to Cambodia during the dry season, the houses in the floating village of Kompong Khleang, which rise up to 10 meters in the air on giant stilts, may seem quaint or even surprising. During the wet season, their brilliance is revealed, as the water level rises within one or two meters of the buildings, which are kept dry only through the creativity of their architecture.
Roughly 35 miles east of the city of Siem Reap, Kompong Khleang is a permanent community dotted onto the flood plain of the Tonle Sap Lake, the largest of its kind. The lake isn’t simply an architectural hurdle for its residents, it informs their way of life – the economy is largely based around fishing, and many social activities are centered around the water. Reaching the city requires a boat trip for visitors, and many of the main villages can not be accessed at all during the dry season.
Explore Phnom Penh on a tuk-tuk ➝
Traveling through Phnom Penh is an enlightening experience, equal parts enthralling and sobering. The capital and most populous city in the country, it is also the cultural hub, and was once known as the “Pearl of Asia.” However, it was also the home to one of the worst tragedies the world has ever seen. The Phnom Penh killing fields are a testament to the brutality of the Khmer Rouge, the horrors of the country’s civil war and the ultimate price of armed conflict.
Navigating Phnom Penh is best done via tuk-tuk, the affectionate name locals give to auto rickshaws. The people of Phnom Penh are friendly and accommodating, and place a strong value on gathering and commemoration, especially for one’s ancestors. Travel to see the stunning local architecture, take part in the annual Water Festival, and reminisce about those that were lost at the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum.
Soak up the Sihanoukville sun ➝
White sand, luxury beach resorts and low-key charm are the big draws of Sihanoukville, Cambodia’s premier destination for those interested in some sun and relaxation. Part of its allure is that it was constructed very deliberately – it was carved out of dense jungle to create the nation’s first and only deep water port, a move that meant that trade no longer had to go through Vietnam.
Head out to the relaxed Otres Beach, which provides a chance to just lie back on the sand, enjoy the sun and gaze out over the water.
Explore the south gate of Angkor Thom ➝
As the last capital of the Khmer empire, Angkor Thom has a fascinating and rich history. Established in the late 12th century, it lasted for hundreds of years and was one of the most dazzling cities of its time. Perhaps the most impressive thing about it is the scale – despite being constructed nearly a millennium ago, those who built it displayed a facility with architecture that far exceeded the period. It is designed to be a microcosm of the universe itself, divided into four sections along the main axes, with the stunning temple of Bayon at the center. The entire city is enclosed in a wall, representing the edges of the universe, and then surrounded by a moat, now dry, which was meant to symbolize the cosmic ocean.
Visitors can walk around the city, seeing artifacts as they were seen by the people who built them hundreds of years ago. The various temples around the Angkor Thom provide clues into the way people worshiped in the past, and are noteworthy objects of great beauty in their own right.

Weather, seasons & climate of Cambodia
Being located in the tropical zone north of the equator, Cambodia has a monsoon climate. Monsoon season runs May – November, meaning that the most pleasant season for visitors is generally the dry season, stretching from November/December – April. Immediately after the monsoon, the blanketing green of the countryside can be stunningly beautiful.
In the north, winters are generally colder, while throughout most of the country temperatures remain fairly constant. The average year-round temperature in Cambodia is 27.7C (the highest monthly average being 35C, the lowest monthly average being 21C). There is often seasonal flooding in Phnom Penh and the rest of Cambodia in late July and early August, and, because the majority of roads are dirt, travel may be disrupted at these times. At the peak of the wet season it can rain as often as two in every three days.
Clothing & essential items to pack when traveling in Vietnam
Loose, natural fabrics all year are recommended, it is essential to bring waterproofs if traveling in the monsoon season. As a rule shoulders and knees should be covered when entering religious sites.
