Best Time To Visit Siem reap

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

Siem Reap is one of the top tourist destinations in Cambodia and is a village which has recently made the transition to becoming a town. It became the destination that it is today based purely on the location it shares with the ruins of Angkor Wat. Offering easy access for anyone who wishes to reach Angkor Wat, Siem Reap almost acts as the guardian of the ruins.

While Siem Reap is hot and humid throughout the year, there are times when traveling there is better than others. To know the best time to visit Siem Reap, and the best time to visit Cambodia in general, it is best to read about the seasons and the conditions during different times of the year in Siem Reap.

Climate in Siem reap

Summer Season in Siem reap

The summer months in Siem Reap see high rainfall, but more than that, the troublesome part of the country is the high temperatures with the combined moisture. The two together means it is highly humid during this time. The weather being so, the tourism is stagnant during this time. The summers are not the best time to visit Cambodia, but on the other hand, the prices for hotels and flights are lucratively low. The rain comes as a relief soon, as it cools down the weather for brief intervals. Being an equatorial country, this time of weather is common, and Siem Reap weather during this time has average temperatures of at least 32°C.

Monsoon Season in Siem reap

Honestly, Siem Reap climate does not really change between summer and monsoon. The only thing that happens is the frequency of rainfall increases because of the south-western monsoon, with regular afternoon and night rain showers. The rainy season offers a choice and maybe one of the best times to visit Cambodia, if you want quiet and to avoid the crowd. You will, however, face a lot of rain, and the heat is an issue, as well, with the humidity being such that it is important to remember to stay hydrated.

Winter Season in Siem reap

While the weather in Cambodia is more or less the same throughout the whole year, Siem Reap is located in the Northern parts of the country, meaning that it is cooler than the rest, especially during the dry season. With the average temperature falling during this time, it is one of the best times to visit Angkor Wat for tourists. This means that tourism increases for Siem Reap as well during this period. While there is occasional rainfall, the time between November and April is mostly dry, and there is an average temperature of 23 to 25°C.

The temperature goes up towards the end of this period, with the April to May months experiencing up to 35 degrees of temperature on various occasions. The best month to visit Siem Reap is December with the tourism industry exploding during this period, especially between Christmas and New Year.

Another part of the year when it is a good time to visit Siem Reap is later during February to April when the temperatures are low, and crowds are a bit sparse as well. The heat is comparatively low, and most of the sites and scenery are easily visible due to the limited rainfall. Tourists can enjoy the outside without fear of either the humidity or the rainfall that is experienced for the rest of the year.
