Phnom Penh often gets a bad wrap.

Of all the capitals in Southeast Asia (with the exception, perhaps, of Vientiane), Phnom Penh is the city most travellers tend to overlook.

I lived in Phnom Penh for 12 months, so I completely get it. Unlike when I lived in Hanoi, I had a hard time convincing friends and family to come and visit me in Cambodia. Everyone knows someone who’s been to Phnom Penh and has later used the word ‘underwhelming’ (or worse!) to describe their experience.

On first impression, Phnom Penh seems to represent many of the things I detest about big cities – not least of all the incessant construction. I’d be lying if I said I adored everything about Phnom Penh. I know the city pretty well, and some of the criticisms are deserved.

But despite our differences, I have a huge soft spot for it. I miss it everyday, and I go back as often as I can. I strongly believe that with the right knowledge and a good itinerary under your belt, you can have a Phnom Penh experience that’s meaningful, fun, and memorable for all the right reasons.

When is the best time to visit Phnom Penh?

Cambodia has a tropical climate with two distinct seasons: dry and wet. Dry season (usually late November to January) is the coolest time of year. It’s also peak tourist season.

March, April and May are the hottest and driest months of the year and should be avoided at all costs. The rains start in June/July and peak in September to form the wet season (or green season, as I prefer to call it).

My favourite time to visit Phnom Penh and Cambodia in general is late September to November. Crowds are relatively thin, and prices are good. It’s warm but not too hot, and since it’s the tail end of the monsoon, everything still has a green tinge.
