WEATHER IN CAMBODIA

What to wear & visitor code of conduct


What to wear in Cambodia

Before packing your suitcase for your trip to Cambodia, you should consider two major points: the Weather and the Culture. Then prepare your clothes that are not only weather appropriate but also culturally appropriate. Actually, people should wear whatever they are most comfortable in, but a fair amount of modesty should be considered.

During dry season from November – April, when the weather is hot and humid, loose-fitting, lightweight, cotton clothing is recommended. You should pack long pants and long-sleeved shirts for hiking, trekking, or outdoor activities. T-shirts are very common for both visitors and locals. A hat and sunglasses will be useful for when walking around under the sun, as will a good sunscreen and mosquito repellent. Opt for a thin cargo pant or Capri-length pant instead of jeans, which are too hot for the tropics. A definite no-no in Asia is showing too much skin. Women keep it modest, not showing a bare midriff or wearing too short shorts. For general touring about the temples and daytime walking around town, shorts are more comfortable than long trousers, but be careful about insect bites and sunburn. Swimwear is acceptable on the beach and at pool but should be covered up when heading into town.

Cambodia can get quite chilly late at night or in the early morning in the cool months (December, January) and it is a good idea to bring a light jacket or cardigan with you. It's also good when you travel in a car as sometimes the A/C can get downright cold.

During the rainy season (May – October), If possible, you should bring a light rain poncho or a sturdy umbrella. However, plastic ponchos and umbrellas can be purchased cheaply at most stores in Cambodia.

While hiking boots would be too hot in the tropical climate, walking shoes/sneakers are good but sturdy hiking sandals are ideal. Open sandals are also ideal for exploring temples and their slip-on/slip-off quality is handy when you need to take shoes off at the door. Rubber flip-flops are good for wearing inside your hotel/ guest house room if you don't like going barefoot.

When you visit outdoor temples, including those of Angkor Wat, shorts and T-shirts are acceptable. Shoes and hats are generally removed at the entrance to pagodas. For visits to the Silver Pagoda in the Royal Palace grounds in Phnom Penh and the highest floor of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, visitors are asked to dress more formally. Gentlemen are required to wear long trousers and ladies should wear long trousers or long skirts and keep their shoulders covered. Those who are not dressed respectably will be turned away.
