Similar to how Angkor is over and above its Wat, so is Cambodia with its temples and urban spots that can surprise you with its sophistication. The capital city, Phnom Penh is chaotic yet captivating and is earning praise for its extravagant riverside setting, world-class dining scene and cultural renaissance. Though it has the world’s 8th wonder in its yard, the real treasure of Cambodia is the people. The Khmers have struggled for years with poverty, bloodshed and political instability. Their strong spirit and contagious optimism is what makes them stand out and smile wide. You can never come away without admiring the inhabitants of this unfathomable kingdom.
Weather In Cambodia In June
Image SourceThe Cardamom Mountains and the south coast beaches like Sihanoukville and Kep in Cambodia go through the heaviest downpours in June, but the country enjoys welcome rain following dry, hot months. In spite of the rainy weather, June is an enjoyable month to visit this country as you can anticipate lots of sunshine in the midst of the showers. The number of visitors is low and low season deals in hotels are not unusual, particularly in Siem Reap.
In the major tourist spots, travel remains trouble-free owing to good infrastructure, but in the rural northeast regions like Mondulkiri and Ratanakiri, the rain might make your journey a fairly difficult one. Watching sunrises and sundown is possible only for lucky people. The southwest monsoon starts to establish itself. The humidity is nearly 50 to 70 percent in the day and 80 to 90 percent at night. The temperatures drop in June, and the severe heat of the previous months slows down as the rains start to pour in.
