The climate of Phnom Penh (Cambodia)
Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia and is located on the banks of the Mekong River. Cambodia suffered a lot during the Vietnam War. In April 1975 the city got occupied by the Red Khmer. In 1979 the Red Khmer was driven away. Nowadays the city is the economic and tourist center of the country. Several beautiful temples and museums are situated in Phnom Penh as well as the Royal Palace. Phnom Penh has a tropical monsoon climate with a dry period from the end of November until the end of April and a rainy season from the beginning of May until the second part of November. During this period about 90% of the total amount of annual precipitation can be recorded. During this period both temperatures and humidity figures are high as well. if you plan a visit to Phnom Penh we advise you to do so during the local winter when temperatures are more pleasant and is doesnít feel as muggy as during the summer.
