It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Angkor

Peak Season: November to April

The bulk of Angkor/Siem Reap’s two million tourists visit during the dry season months of November to April (December and January are the busiest months). Prices rise accordingly; temperatures hover around the low 80s.

Off Season: May to August

The rainy season means periodic downpours followed by sweaty 100-degree spells. Most visitors stay away, but those who brave the disagreeable weather enjoy good deals and crowd-free sites.

Sweet Spot: September to October

Autumn provides a short lull before the rush of peak season. The heat drops down to the 90s and the rains subside somewhat. This is the best time to take advantage of lower rates, fewer crowds, and the beautiful greenery, which is flush from rainy season showers.
