We invite you to step into the living history of the beautiful nation.
When is the best time to visit Cambodia?
The ideal months to visit Cambodia are November through April, when there is seldom any rain. Outside of this time, the humidity rises and the rains arrive, helping the farmers in Cambodia develop their crops. The landscape is beautiful and green, the rivers are full and running, and the temples are tranquil, so you shouldn't let that stop you from traveling. The outer-lying temples are best visited at this time because they are frequently vacant.
What are the top places that you should not miss when taking a tour to Cambodia?

Phnom Penh, Cambodia's capital, has a variety of tourist attractions. Traditional Khmer buildings such as the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda, museums housing handicrafts and sculptures such as the National Museum, and museums designated as "Memory of the World" by UNESCO such as the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum.
