Best Time to GoFrom December to next January is the best time for Cambodia travel. It is the coolest time among all and does not rain too much. It is generally hot in the country with the annual average temperature at about 80℉-82℉ (27℃-28℃). April is the hottest month in a year with the temperature even reaching 105℉ (40℃). Affected by the tropical monsoon climate, it has a clear distinction of rainy season and dry season. From May to October is the rainy season, also the slack travel season, and from November to next April is the dry season, also the peak travel season. For what to wear, T-shirts easy to dry, shorts, dresses and slippers are recommended. In addition, remember to take rain gears, sun-blocking protections like sunglasses, and some common medicines.
To get around inside the country, there are domestic flights between three major cities: Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville. Trains are only available between Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville. Taking a long-distance bus is also a good choice. Besides, you can take a ferry along Mekong River and Tonle Sap Lake to travel between Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Battambang and Sihanoukville. Traveling inside the cities, you can take a Tuk-tuk, a bamboo train in some cities like Battambang, rent a motorbike or bike to visit tourist attractions.
HistoryCambodia is a civilized ancient country established in the late first century. It went through several periods including Funan Kingdom (1st century - 550), Chenla Kingdom (6th century - 802) and Khmer Empire (802 - 1431). Khmer Empire, more widely known as Angkor Period, is the most prosperous era in Cambodian history. Paying a visit to Angkor Wat, you can have a glimpse on the prosperity of the ancient Angkor Period.
GeographyThe country is a basin facing Gulf of Thailand on the south and other sides are surrounded by hills and mountains. In the east, north and west are mainly forests rich in tropical wood resources like teakwood, ironwood and sandalwood. The central part is broad plains fed by Mekong River and Tonle Sap Lake, providing excellent conditions for rice production. That is why in Cambodians' daily diet, rice is the main staple food.
