No worries about the traffic on most of the roads, and on your last day tour when we pedal to Phnom Penh, we will be transferred to avoid the terrific traffic of the capital city.

Cambodia Weather

The country has two distinct weather seasons but we can travel all year round in Cambodia. Our wet season runs from May to September and the dry season from October until April and the heaviest rainfall usually in August & September. The cooler is 24°C around November/December and hottest hitting 35°C around April/May.
