    ABOUTAsia staff view: Why visit in November

    Kelly says: "We checked the ABOUTAsia website before we travelled to Cambodia and I decided November was the month to do so because it was much cooler and land transportation around the country is easy. Although it was the beginning of the high season, we saw very little of other tourists - it was an ABOUTAsia itinerary after all!"

    It rained perhaps once in the week when we were here - a brief shower while we were at lunch. We had gorgeous sunsets - and oh yes, we had a beautiful sunrise at a reasonable hour. We got out at a quarter past five and saw first light at Bakheng at half past five. We started the day quietly with a gorgeous splash of red, orange and pink - and drove by the hordes at seven. We couldn't ask for more."

    Khmer Proverb

    Do not rely upon the notion that those who are rich need not exert effort or those who have fallen need not push themselves up


    We dictate our own future and should not wait around for luck/fate to dictate it for us. Do not believe that if you are rich, you no longer need to work hard or if you have fallen (literally, financially, or otherwise) that it is pointless to struggle to get back on your feet.
