The kingdom of Cambodia (also know as Kampuchea) is a Southeast Asian Nation flanked by Vietnam in the east, Laos in the North and the Gulf of Thailand to its Southwest. Cambodia has recently re-established it self on the tourism map and is now known for its idyllic beaches and exotic temples.
Cambodia possesses a tropical monsoon climate. The country is best visited during the dry season from November/December to April, as the weather is cool and dry at this time thanks to the northeastern monsoon.
The humid southwestern monsoon arrives from May to November. At this time, much of Cambodia is visited by heavy showers – these rains account for up to 80% of annual rainfall, starting seasonal floods throughout the country between July and August and making travel very difficult to certain areas.
