Cambodia has a tropical climate with temperatures ranging from warm to hot throughout the year.
There are two seasons; the northeast monsoon season runs from November to April, bringing sunny, dry weather, especially in January and February. The rains come when the winds shift into the southwest monsoon from May to October, with the most precipitation in September; this season has the loveliest colours – the rice fields are green, and the sunsets are fabulous. As a bonus for those chasing a deal, the prices are at their lowest.
From February to April, Cambodia steadily heats up, with temperatures sometimes exceeding 40°C in April. However, temperatures remain high in May and June, but the southwest monsoon brings more humidity and some very humid days! There will undoubtedly be some rainfall from July to October, but it usually comes in short, heavy showers, often in the late afternoon and evening.
