The dry NE monsoon is at its height with generally fine, dry weather. The temperature in February is noticeably warmer than January, paricularly by the end of the month. It is still generally dry, but water levels are starting to become difficult for boat travel. This is definitely still the high season, however, and last minute hotel bookings can be difficult, particularly if Chinese New Year falls here. Temple sites remain crowded with Asian visitors, especially.

Samang says: "In February, the farmers work very hard because they are harvesting rice. The fields look very different - sometimes bare (because the farmers have harvested the rice) sometimes golden brown. It looks beautiful when the sun is setting. "
"I think tourists should pay attention to an unusual fruit in the month of February. The cashew nut is a popular snack in Western countries but the fresh fruit is unknown to many visitors. I love the smell of the cashew fruit and its colours too"
Pouring the rice you take the husk.
When a person is too greedy, they try to get as much as they can, taking the husk along with the rice. They let greed obscure their sense of what is important, and they come out with a net loss because they end up taking the husk, which has no value, along with the rice.
