With its incredible ruins, and colourful history, it’s little surprise that Cambodia has become a firm traveller favourite on the South East Asian map. If you’re toying with visiting Cambodia and are keen to make the most of your time there, our five quick travel tips should help you on your way…
1 – WHEN TO GO
Before booking anything, you need to determine the best time to visit. As in most of South East Asia, there are two distinct seasons in Cambodia. Wet season, running from May to October, and dry season, from November to April. High season falls between November and February. At this time of year, you can expect the best temperatures, but do bear in mind you’ll also have crowds and higher prices to contend with. For the best combination of weather and tourist numbers, we recommend visiting between June and August.
2 – WHAT TO BUDGET
One of the best things about Cambodia is that your money will go a long way. As one of the cheapest of South East Asian countries, you can budget as little as £30 per day. Should you have a larger budget, you’ll be able to live very comfortably, and enjoy top class accommodation and food. You’ll find that US dollars are readily accepted across the entire country.
3 – WHERE TO GO
Where you visit in Cambodia will of course depend on your interests and time frame. Although a relatively small country, travelling between destinations can take a while, so make sure that you factor travel time into your itinerary. The last thing you want is to plan too many destinations, and find yourself spending your entire holiday on a bus. Siem Reap, the nearest town to Angkor Wat is a favourite starting place, as is the capital city of Phnom Penh. For beaches, head south to Sihanoukville, and for national parks and mountains head to the Kampot Province.
4 – WHAT TO PACK
We have one word of advice for you here – layers. As you’ll likely be travelling around, you need to cater both for those warm days on the beach, and the cooler nights you’ll encounter in the mountains. You’ll also need to pack something to cover your shoulders with when visiting religious monuments.
5 – WHAT TO EAT
Although not as well known as its neighbours for cuisine, you’ll still find delicious dishes in Cambodia. To find the tastiest and freshest dishes, look for the restaurants and side street cafes where the locals are eating. Not only will they be serving the tastiest food, but their high turn over will mean their ingredients are fresher.
