Our top tip for July

'Travel to Cambodia in July and you can enjoy smaller crowds (if any) at the temples and take advantage of low season hotel offers.'

The rains continue throughout July, although dry days are still common. Temperatures are gradually dropping, making the days more comfortable, with average temperatures around 27°C.

Avoid the short, heavy showers and you will find that this is still a good month to be in Cambodia although rainfall tends to increase towards the end of the month. Thunder storms can also break out infrequently and make for some spectacular views, especially at the Angkor Temples!

On the south coast beaches of Sihanoukville and Kep, and in more rural regions, such as Ratanakiri, rainfall can be heavier and more prolonged although dry days can still be expected. Wet weather puts Cambodia's south coast beaches off the radar in July, however, the beaches of central Vietnam are at their best at this time and are easily tagged onto a Cambodia tour.

Searching for sunshine?

Whilst Cambodia's beaches are experiencing high rainfall during the month of July a short hop across the Gulf of Thailand, the Thai islands of Koh Samui and Koh Pha Ngan are enjoying prolonged sunny spells.
