PASSPORT & VISA :
  • In order to enter Cambodian territory, you must be provided with a valid passport, valid for 6 months after the date of return. Your passport must contain at least one full blank page.

  • For information, if you travel previously to Vietnam or Laos, and you arrive in Cambodia by road, you should obtain your visa before crossing the border, because no border crossing Cambodian will be able to provide visas.
HEALTH & VACCINES :
 
  • No vaccinations are required to visit Cambodia, however, we advise you to be up to date in all your classic vaccinations (diphtheria, tetanus, typhoid, poliomyelitis, meningitis, typhoid fever, hepatitis).
  • Some people recommend getting vaccinated against hepatitis A and B and Japanese encephalitis especially if you go to rural areas during the monsoon season. To find out if these vaccinations are relevant to you, make an appointment at a vaccination center.
  • It is important to protect yourself from malaria, which is a disease transmitted by mosquitoes. For more information, do not hesitate to ask your doctor for advice. Make sure you do not forget about anti-snake repellents for your comfort.
  • Do not hesitate to provide a small pharmacy kit with some basic products, it will be very useful in case of first aid.
  • Namely: The most common reported infection is hepatitis A that can be transmitted through food and water. Hepatitis B is spread through blood and saliva. The most common health problems among travelers are digestive problems and diarrhea, which can be treated by avoiding spicy dishes and drinking plenty of water.

 CLIMATE :
 
  • There are two very distinct seasons in Cambodia: a winter season, also called the north-east monsoon (from November to March) which translates into a dry and mild weather, and a summer season, also called southwest monsoon (April to October) which is a hot and humid season.
  • With regard to the temperatures, from November to February the average temperature is about 27 ° C whereas in summer, from June to September, the thermometer can quickly rise above 35 ° C. You'll understand, whatever the time of the year, do not forget sunscreen and hat!
  • Rainfall is scarce in December, January and February, which is why the most favorable months of the year to visit Cambodia are the months of January and February.
  • The city of Angkor and its famous temples, located in the north-west of the country, is best visited during the dry season, from November to March. During this period, the rate of sunshine is very high and the rains are scarce
  • Note that the month of April can be a very good alternative to enjoy a pleasant climate in Cambodia, although it is still a little rainy. This is one of the best times to go to Cambodia avoiding the tourist crowds and enjoying more attractive rates.
