Culture

Cambodia is a country rich in culture and heavily influenced by fellow Asian nation, India. Cambodians are quick to rebuild, gentle and willing to find any reason to celebrate. They are generally considered conventional and superstitious in nature.

Best time to visit

Cambodia is warm the majority of the year and is split into wet and dry seasons. November - May (dry season) is considered the best time to travel to avoid rainfall. However, June - October (wet season) can make for lush rainforests and a beautiful evergreen environment. We suggest heading over around November - February to catch warm enough weather to be able to swim but comfortable temperatures to explore the many sights.
