Cambodia falls into a tropical region and as such enjoys high temperatures year round. Western tourists may find the extremes of temperature in the dry season (Nov-Apr when the mercury climbs to around 40°C) a bit too much, while the monsoon hits the country in May and lasts until October.
The monsoon can be a spectacular time to visit, nearly 80 per cent of the annual precipitation occurs in this short period. Most falls as extremely heavy rainfall in cloudbursts accompanied by thunder and lightning, occurring each afternoon for around an hour. However, the Monsoon can make things difficult for tourists, many trekking areas become impassable and the increased force of the Mekong flowing into the Tonle Sap river actually reverses the flow of the lesser river – backing it up to the Tonle Sap and doubling the area of the lake.
The best time for most tourists to visit is at the end of the rainy season, from Oct-Jan. The land appears at its lushest and temperatures are yet to hit the summer highs, being still warm but not excessively so.
