We are looking at visiting Cambodia either late October or in January. Which is best weather wise?
I always tell my customers late October or early November.Still green and not so hot.Not as many people.January is busy and brown.
My personal option after living in Phnom Penh Cambodia for 9 years is December January February being the best three months of the year, October is still the rainy season but as the last post said it's green and less tourists but a lot of places are closed for maintenance as it's the really low season month.
January, although good weather wise, is peak tourist season, therefore preferred accommodation mat be booked out. It will also be a very busy time.
Late October, although towards the end of the rainy season, is a nice time even though you might have some late afternoon or overnight rain.
If you are going in October bring your umbrella. I would try for Nov or Dec if possible
