    Hi guys,


    Im planning on travelling to Cambodia mid-late July and was thinking of going to Siem Reap, Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh.

    Can anyone tell me what the weather is like during the time. I'm aware that its raining season but wanted to know if it rains constantly or if it only rains for a small amount of time each day. I don't want to go to places like sihanoukville if the weather is going to be terrible.

    Thanks!

    Late July will be pretty wet. I'd expect at least some rain most days and some days rain for a lot of the day. Personally I wouldn't bother with Sihanoukville, but friends who were there in August last year said they had great weather, so it is a bit of luck of the draw.

    Siem Reap and Angkor Wat on the other hand should be good -- I love the ruins in the wet season, even if Siem Reap will be a bit grotty. Phnom Penh will flood in parts after heavy rain.

    Hope that helps

    Yeas, July is rainy.
    As much as it will probably rain most days, it doesn't mean that it will rain all day.
    Most of the times, it'll be heavy showers for 1, 2 hours or less late afternoon/early evening.

    Sihanoukville under the rain definitely isn't too much fun. But just as somtam mentionned, I also have friends who went there late in July, and they had a good time. You could take your chances!
