Heat lovers rejoice! Because of its tropical location, Cambodia is pretty hot and humid all year round, with an average temperature of around 30°C. The hottest time of year is March-April when the temperature can rise to a stifling 40°C. This is followed by a rainy season which runs from May to October. During the rainy season prices are cheaper and everywhere is less crowded, however it does rain a lot, especially on the coast. It’s not worth planning a trip to the beach during the rainy season. The most pleasant time to visit Cambodia is during the dry, cool(er) period between November and February.
