Are you planning a trip to Cambodia? The beautiful country has become one of favorites in Southeast Asia! Here’s where you can find our best Cambodia travel tips, beach guides, and outdoor adventures.

We’ve now been to Cambodia several times and fell in love with the temples, street food, and beautiful islands. Our first Cambodia trip was back in 2016 as part of a year-long backpacking trip. Read more about our story and how we started our travel blog here!

During this adventure, we explored the capital city of Phnom Penh, went to the crab market in Kep, and hit the stunning islands off the coast. Who knew Cambodia had such incredible beaches??

On our most recent Cambodia travel, we visited the famous Angkor Wat temples. Most travelers make a 2 to 3 week itinerary to see both the islands and historic sites. You should also know that Cambodia is one of the cheapest countries in Asia, which is why it’s such a popular option for budget travelers.

Check out all our Cambodia travel guides for tips, and to hear all about our own experiences. Also, be sure to taste as much local Cambodian food as possible!

Cambodia Travel Tips

Money: Riel is the official currency, but U.S. dollars are used just as much. In fact, many local shops and restaurants will accept dollars and give you change back in Cambodian Riel as they prefer it.

Location: Cambodia is located in Southeast Asia and sits on the Gulf of Thailand. It also borders the countries of Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand.

Language: Khmer is the language spoken in Cambodia.

Seasons: Cambodia has a dry and wet season. The best time to visit is during the months of December to May, especially if you’re heading to the beaches. Note that it can be very humid towards the end of the dry season, and after May comes the rain.

What to Eat & Drink: Cambodian cuisine is so delicious! It features a great mix of seafood, curries, noodle soups, and rice dishes that are bursting with flavor. There is also an abundance of tropical fruit to enjoy throughout the country.
