Cambodia is known for its tropical monsoon climate with two distinct seasons: the rainy season from May to early November and the dry season from late November to April. During the rainy season, Cambodia experiences 75% of its annual rainfall with warm temperatures and lush, green countryside waiting to be explored! The dry season from November to April appears more popular amongst visiting travellers, with clearer skies and sunshine. Temperatures in Cambodia remain warm and consistent across the year making it a perfect place to travel any month. However, if travelling throughout the North during the winter months (December to March), be sure to pack extra layers as temperatures can become cold during the evenings.

Cambodian cuisine is modest and comforting with a unique twist. Rice and freshwater fish are staples and a traditional Cambodian meal almost always includes a samlor (traditional soup) – Samlor machou bunlay is the most popular of these. Other esteemed national dishes include kyteow (rice-noodle soup) Fish Amok (freshwater fish covered in coconut milk, eggs, fish sauce and palm sugar) and Beef Loc Lac (marinated beef). Angkor Beer is the most well-known beer in Cambodia with prices varying from around US$1 for a glass to around US$2. Palm wine is popular in rural areas and tends to be very strong.

Buddhism is the most popular religious for the nation, with 95% of the population following Theravada Buddhism. Superstition almost runs parallel to religion, with the belief of spirits and superpowers running rife.
