Cambodia - Weather in August. The wet SW monsoon is at its height. Although low season, the influx of European tourists on their long summer holiday can cause some shortages (eg in Italian Language guides). The weather is cooling even more steadily, and the colours and reflections after rainfall can make for interesting photographic conditions. Tourist sites on the lake are easily accessible now that water levels have risen.

Vesna says: "I lived in Phnom Penh last August. Phnom Penh is always busy - it is not like Siem Reap which is affected by the tourist season. There are no festivals in August but it is always noisy in Phnom Penh, especially now. There are more big buildings and the riverfront is always busy. In the morning, there are people exercising to loud music. In the evening, you can see children walking with their parents. There are peddlers selling balloons, popcorn, steamed corn, everything"
