This is the New Year of both the Chinese and Vietnamese lunar calendar. It’s not an official holiday, but widely celebrated in Cambodia, due to the large number of Chinese and Vietnamese in the country.

How to do and what to expect if travel to Cambodia in February

February is a good time to visit Cambodia thanks to the benefit of dry season with moderate climate. This is the right time to get an ambitious itinerary for your holiday since almost all of the places in Cambodia are accessible and enjoyable.
Until the rain comes, boat cruise on Tonle Sap and little rivers seem not very attempting anyway, other adventure activities such as biking overland or at sites and trekking in the remote regions are good. Beaches in the south coast promise good swimming and relax and should be put at the end of the itinerary if you travel in Cambodia only. Just dress loose fitting and drink enough water. Sun glasses, sun hat are needed and a noon break between your visits is recommended.
