What Our Guests Have To Say About This Tour
Great extension to Vietnam
“Cambodia was also great: Incredible temples, help with best picture locations, detailed history and stories, guide picked some "off script” local restaurants that were excellent. The tuk tuk rides in Cambodia were a hoot and we took advantage of them many times.”
- Jim Haas
Trip of a lifetime

The weather in Siem Reap is warm to hot year-round, with a marked increase in humidity and rainfall during the summer months. Therefore, we recommend travel to Cambodia from October-March. Following are the average temperatures and precipitation in Siem Reap:
When to Go
The cooler dry season lasts from October to March. In October and November, arriving just after the rainy season, you'll have the benefit of being there for the newly greened trees and rice paddies, as well as the much clearer air quality that can be expected at this time of year. December through March remain much drier and a bit cooler than during the summer months. However, it is possible to have some rain at any time of year.
The ingredients and flavors of cuisine in Southeast Asia are varied and complex. Cambodian staples are rice and fish, seasoned with chilies and garlic, or in some cases coconut milk. Amok is a local favorite: fish in coconut, wrapped in banana leaf. Meals also often include hot soups. However, please note that you will also be able to find some Western dishes that are familiar should you need a bit of comfort food. Vegetarians can be accommodated with advance notice.
