The climate in Cambodia is typical of the tropics in Asia. The rainy season occurs between May and October, with relatively cool temperatures and high humidity levels. The dry season between November and April sees temperatures peaking at around 104°F (40°C).
The wettest months in Cambodia are during September and October when the moist winds blowing in from the Gulf of Thailand and Indian Ocean dump heavy showers on the country. The rain usually arrives in the afternoon, and downpours last only an hour or two. The driest months are January and February.
