Travel Cambodia

Asia's friendliest people..

Cambodia, known as 'The Kingdom of Wonder', is truly a land of contradictions, with its magnificent ancient temples just a short bike ride away from villages of simple stilted huts.

The country is one of the best destinations for cycling. Much of the country is incredibly flat, the only real topography located in the mountains of the south and the far north east. With emerald rice fields, crystal tropical waters, dense jungle, the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia and the Cardamom Mountains, the landscapes and scenes of Cambodia are unfailingly photogenic and best seen on two wheels.

Weather & Climate


Coolest time: November to February – Hottest Time: March to May

Wettest time: June to October – Driest Time: December to March

Our favourite time: December to February or July & August

Cambodia has a tropical climate which, like much of the rest of Southeast Asia, is dominated by monsoons. Winters are dry and cool from November to February. Temperatures rise to a peak from March to May, but drop slightly with the return of the rainy season in June. September and October are the wettest months with a return to drier conditions in November.

When is the best time to visit Cambodia?

Winter is a great time to cycle with its cooler temperatures and low rainfall, but it’s worth bearing in mind that this time of year sees the greatest number of tourists at the Angkor temples, and the lack of rain means the air will be a bit dusty while riding on dirt roads. The rainy season, while undeniably wet, is also a great time to see Cambodia at its most beautiful. At this time the lands turn green with emerald rice fields, and you'll encounter fewer tourists. While it does rain most days, rain falls mainly in the afternoons in short, heavy showers with the sun appearing as soon as the rain stops. This is actually a great way to keep cool while riding. Our favourite time to ride is at the end of the rainy season. At this time the heavier rains let up, but the lands are still green and the air clear.
