Cambodia: Best time to go

During the summer rainy season rains tend to be short and take place in the late afternoons, meaning that having a Cambodian Holiday in these months is still enjoyable. Angkor can be lovely in the monsoon.


N.B. All information given here is to the best of our knowledge, however, changes do occur, sometimes at short notice. Ampersand cannot be held liable for such happenings. Of course, if you have any tips that you feel would benefit other travellers, please pass them onto us and we will add them.

When considering one of our Cambodia holidays, you should bear in mind that there are no direct flights into Cambodia from the UK; flights to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap go via Asian hubs such as Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong. You can also enter Cambodia via the Mekong from Vietnam.

British passport holders require visas for Cambodia which can be obtained prior to departure or on arrival in Cambodia. You may apply in person at the Cambodian Embassy in London or by post. All visas are valid for 30 days from the date of entry and currently cost £15 per person in the UK or US$20 upon arrival in Cambodia. Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months after your return from Cambodia and have at least 2 blank pages. You will need to complete a visa application form and provide 2 passport photos on application. Alternatively you can apply for an e-visa from the Cambodian Embassy website www.evisa.gov.kh. If applying on arrival in Cambodia a 30 day tourist visas cost £15 and you will need to provide a passport photo.
