The country has a tropical climate: warm and humid. In the monsoon season from May to November, abundant rain allows for the cultivation of a wide variety of crops. The most pleasant season is the dry season, from November/December to April.In the north, winters can be colder, while throughout most of the country temperatures remain fairly constant.
There is often seasonal flooding in Phnom Penh and the rest of Cambodia in late July and early August so travel may be disrupted. Overall, travelers need not fear of natural disasters such as erupting volcanoes or earthquakes and the country is not directly affected by tropical storms.
