Cambodia Travel Tips

Amidst the winding Mekong River and the fertile plains of the Mekong-Tonle basin, is the Kingdom of Cambodia. Surrounded by Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam, Cambodia boasts a rich culture and many natural treasures, with beaches, rivers, and some of the most remote forests in all of Asia.  Here, travelers will enjoy endless opportunities for exploration. The magical Temples of Angkor tell a fascinating story against a beautiful backdrop of ancient ruins. The capital city, Phnom Penh, showcases Cambodia’s well-preserved traditions. And bustling cafes strewn among the spectacular pagodas and monasteries are symbolic of the way new has interwoven with old. Outside the cities, travelers can explore the unspoiled natural beauty and fascinating floating villages. Our expertly planned tours of Asia uncover the treasures of Southeast Asia’s best-kept secret.

Cambodia has a tropical monsoon climate and two real seasons: the monsoon or rainy season from May through October, and the dry season, from November to April. During the rainy season, temperatures are cool and pleasant. Temperatures in the dry season can be very hot, so travelers are advised to pack accordingly and bring plenty of sunscreen.
