Weather at the moment
Weather all year round
Cambodia's hot and humid climate is conditioned by the action of monsoons, which determine the two seasons, dry (from November to the end of May) and humid (from the end of May to October). During the dry season, the weather at Angkor is characterized by good sunshine and mercury ranging from 15°C to 35°C. In the middle of the rainy season, however, Angkor records average temperatures of 27°C, which the monsoon can make you feel higher.
The vast majority of Cambodia's population is poor, but the cost of living for foreigners is higher than in other Asian countries. For equal benefits, Thailand, more developed is also cheaper. A stay in Angkor is relatively expensive: everything is organized so that tourists spend as much money as possible in a minimum amount of time. However, by organizing in advance and being smart, smart travellers can get away with it all.
To travel to Cambodia, and therefore to Angkor, a tourist visa will allow you to stay there for one month. Theoretically, this tourist visa Cambodian should cost you US$30 upon arrival (US$32 if you arrive without a passport photo, or US$38 if you opt for the e-visa on the Internet). These are the fares charged at Phnom Penh and Siem Reap airports (neighbouring Angkor), but when crossing a land border crossing, an average of US$35-40 is charged (officials are poorly paid...)! To avoid these shenanigans, it may therefore be preferable to obtain a visa in advance.
While no vaccination is required to travel to Angkor or to enter Cambodia, some are recommended. There are risks related to the environment, insects and animals, food and drink... It will all depend on the type of stay you plan to make. If you decide to travel through the jungle, sleep under the stars, cross swamps or wilderness areas, we advise you in these cases and as a priority to vaccinate against viral hepatitis A and B, diphtheria, tetanus, poliomyelitis, typhoid, Japanese encephalitis (prolonged stay in rural areas) and rabies ("adventure tour"). As for drinking water in Angkor, we prefer to bring mineral water bottles.
