WHO SHOULD VISIT

Siem Reap is a phenomenal place to experience culture, scenery, wildlife and so much more. This is why it is perfectly catered to all types of travellers, whether on a honeymoon, traveling solo, as a family or part of a group. 

Children are always welcome in Cambodia, with many of the hotels offering family or interconnecting rooms, in addition to this the staff are just so welcoming, offering to entertain the younger ones whilst you relax over lunch or dinner, making this a such a family friendly region of the world. I would however mention that the Killing Fields is not suitable for younger children. 

WHEN TO VISIT

Cambodia is warm all year round, however there are several seasons that can influence the best time to visit. The peak season runs from November through till May, which is known as the dry season. The best time to experience the region of Kep would be November - May where you can enjoy sunshine, blue skies and little to no rain. 

The other half of the year from June - October sees the rainy season come to the forefront, which isn't ideal when you want to relax on the beach. The rain usually comes in bursts, mornings are usually clear with the rain coming through in the afternoon.

November - May: Peak time, bigger crowds but best temperature for a beach getaway

June - October: Rainy season begins, the low season has some great promotions to take advantage of. Top tip is to explore in the morning as rain usually hits in the afternoon.
