Best time to visit

The ideal time to visit Cambodia is between November and March, which is the dry season of the country. During this time, you do not have to worry about rainstorms ruining your outdoor plans. However, this is the peak tourist season of the country, and there will be huge traffic of tourists at major attractions like Angkor Wat and famous beaches. Similarly, prices of flights to Cambodia also hikes, and accommodations raise their prices. For budget travelers, we recommend planning the trip to Cambodia between May and October. There will be daily rainstorms in these months; however, they last for a short period, and mostly they occur in the late afternoon. So, you will have enough time to tour the place.

Packing

Do not forget to carry the required medications as you might not find your medicine in the places of the itinerary, or they might be out of stock. Even though your tour guide will have a bigger first-aid kit, be sure to carry your own. 

How to stay safe in Cambodia

Cambodia is a safe place to travel. Violent attacks are very rare in the country; however, there are many cases of petty theft. Some common scams are the motorbike scam where vendors try to charge you for damage to their bike, tuk-tuk scams; you might meet some driver who works under commission for a particular restaurant, hotel, etc. and he might take you far away from your destination or pressure you to stay/spend money in the hotel. You will be fine if you stay away from people involved with drinking, drugs, or sex tourism. However, when touring with us, these kinds of things are not a problem. But be sure to remember all these and ask for additional information to your tour guide just in case something like this happen to you, without our knowledge.
