What kind of clothes should I take with me?

Being a tropical climate, light clothing made from natural fibres (especially cotton) is most comfortable. If you plan to visit the highlands in the cool season a light jacket may be necessary for the evenings. Bring sandals or footwear that is easy to remove (especially if visiting temples). It is advisable to wear sandals in the rainy season as they are quicker to dry than fully covered shoes.All hotels and guesthouses offer laundry service and there are places offering laundry service in all towns that will wash and return your clothes within 24 hours.

Remember that Cambodia is a Buddhist county and people dress modestly here, with the possible exception of the Phnom Penh fashionistas! Avoid wearing very short skirts or shorts and revealing clothes, especially in small towns. If visiting a temple you should cover your legs and shoulders - you will not be allowed into the Royal Palace, for instance, with shorts or a singlet.
