The best time to travel to Cambodia is really decided by what you are looking for in your holiday. There are three main issues that you should look into before planning the dates for your trip.

  • Comfort levels of temperature, humidity and rainfall for touring.
  • Value for money at hotels - many have better value deals in the low season.
  • Touring in tranquility, avoiding the worst of the tourist crowds at key sites.
