Cambodia Weather in July - drops from the sky



Cambodia - Weather in July. The wet SW monsoon is established. July is very much low season, with lower tourist numbers giving good hotel deals, and bargains to be had in the markets. Rain is likely, but runs of dry days are still common. The country is now much more lush and green after a couple of months of rains, and water levels in the lake are starting to rise.

Touring highlights in July

  • Average of 10-12 hours of daylight though rain will now be a regular occurrence.
  • Temperatures range from 24ºC (75ºF) to 33ºC (91ºF)
  • Crowd avoidance is easy as large tourist groups are virtually non-existant.
  • The rivers and lakes are filling up so boat trips are more accessible.
  • The temperatures in the Angkor complex are typically several degrees lower due to the large amount of trees & forested area that retain cool temperatures.

    ABOUTAsia staff view: Why visit in July

    Pheakdey says: "July is a special month for the farmers. I used to work with farmers and this is the time of preparing the land for the transplanting of rice. This is a back-breaking process so I always appreciate my bowl of rice because it is the work of farmers for many months."

    "This is also a special time for the monks who have special restrictions in the monasteries according to Buddhist teachings. I used to be one and we had to pray three times a day: once in the early morning, midday and once in the evening."
