Cambodia weather & when to go: May

May overview

Whilst slightly cooler than April, early May can remain relatively dry, however by the latter part of the month the rains are likely to have begun across Cambodia, albeit rainfall remains low and sporadic initially. Overall its still a good month for travel, especially for those wanting to avoid peak season crowds.
