What’s the weather like in Cambodia in March?
Located in Southeast Asia, Cambodia has a monsoon climate with dry and wet seasons through the year. From October to April the dry season brings warm temperatures, lots of sunshine and almost no rain right across the country. As it’s so hot this time of year, save your sightseeing for the cooler mornings and evenings, and seek shade in the peak of the day. The UV levels are very high in March, so make sure you regularly apply sun cream and wear a hat.
In March, the northern city of Siem Reap has an average temperature of 30°C, with highs of a sweltering 34°C in the afternoons. At night the temperature drops only slightly to 25°C, so you’ll be grateful for air conditioning at your hotel. Further south in the coastal region of Sihanoukville, temperatures are very similar with highs of 32°C and lows of 26°C after dark. No matter where you visit at this time of year, there’s glorious sunshine and almost no chance of rain.
