SMALL GROUP TOURS IN CAMBODIA AND THE DRY SEASON
The dry season in Cambodia runs from November to May. The first half of this period is the most popular time to visit Cambodia, meaning many prominent sites will be crowded. That is with good reason, though, as people enjoy temperatures in the mid-20s and no rain. After the very start of the season, however, the lack of rain starts to affect the level of the lakes in the country, making travel by water a bit more difficult. Some locations, such as flooded forests, will not hold the same magic as they do during the rainy season when they reach the height of their splendour. The trade-off can be worth it, however, as comfortable temperatures and no rain allow you more time outside and make climbing temple steps less of an effort. As the dry season wears on, it becomes hot and dry, and dust can become a challenge. Fewer tourists during this time, however, can make for quicker travel and less crowding. Small group tours in Cambodia can find themselves enjoying the May landscape and often escape the mid-day heat, which can go up to the mid-30s, by enjoying indoor pursuits in their hotels or a leisurely meal enjoying the local cuisine.
