Cambodia: Weather & when to go: January

January Overview

Be ready to be wowed off your feet in Cambodia with pristine blue skies, pleasant weather averaging at 26oC and barely any rain in the month of January. You may find the mountainous regions of Ratanakiri and Mondulkiri a lot cooler with the average temperature barely reaching 21oC.

This month is one of the most favorable months to plan a visit to Cambodia and discover the temples of Angkor Vat as the temperate climate does make sight seeing a lot bearable, although I’m sure you would find relief from the noonday sun in the shade.

Visit the sunshine blessed coast from Koh Kong and Sihanoukville all the way to Kampot and Kep which are in close proximity to Vietnam. With low probability of rain in the month of January, you can enjoy the dry days and warm sea waters which make for great conditions for diving to be witness to the spectacular marine life. If you love diving, you must visit the waters off the islands of KohRong and KohRongSamloem.
