The monsoons during June and October usually follow a pattern of clear mornings with a period of rain in the late afternoons. Normally the rain lasts for just 1-2 hours.

Cambodia experiences a tropical climate almost year round so lightweight clothing is best. In the cooler months warmer clothing may be required, especially during the evenings and in mountainous areas.

Cambodia is still a conservative country, in some area we recommend to have dress below knee such as Royal Palace. So, please bring some clothes in your bag-pack to cover the knees.

Most of our cycling group find out that it is part of the enjoyable trip and feel people are so welcome, especially the kids.
