The Khmers have been to hell and back, struggling through years of bloodshed, poverty, and political instability. Thanks to an unbreakable spirit and infectious optimism, they have prevailed with their smiles intact.

Best Time to Visit Cambodia
Cambodia is warm all year, with a monsoon climate that creates two distinct seasons. Rainy (May to October) and dry (November to April with temperatures reaching 89F/32C). The best time to visit Cambodia is between November and April, when there are clear blue skies with little rain.
The rainy season can also be a good time for sightseeing. It does not rain all day and this season is one of the quietest times for major landmarks like Angkor Wat and the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh.
