When is the best time to visit Siem Reap?
Cambodia has three distinct seasons that you may experience depending on the time of year you book airfare to Siem Reap. Dry season is between December and March and is the best time to book return flights to Siem Reap in terms of weather. Daytime temperatures are about 32°C, and humidity is low. However, the nice weather means this is the busiest season to book flights to Siem Reap. Reserve your accommodation early for the best rate, and arrive at Angkor Wat first thing in the morning to have the best chance of taking photos without too many other visitors crowding your shots!
Humidity and the heat rise in April and May. Daytime temperatures typically hit about 35°C. There are fewer tourists in April and May compared to the dry season, so it’s a good time to book tickets to Siem Reap if you want to avoid the peak crowds.
Consider booking cheap flights to Siem Reap between June and November if you’re after a bargain on accommodation and want to see Angkor Wat at its least busy. This is monsoon season in Cambodia, so it rains fairly often. On the bright side, showers typically don’t last long, and rain helps cool down daytime temperatures to about 32°C. Rainforests and national parks around Siem Reap are also at their most green and lush during this season.
