When to Travel?
November to March is considered “Dry season” and is the most popular time to visit. December and January are particularly busy due to the pleasant temperatures in the mid-to-high twenties (Celsius, approx. 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit). April and May make up the end of the dry season and are the hottest months of the year, though this makes for less tourists and an eerily quiet Angkor.
The “Wet season” (often dubbed green season for the luxuriant foliage and lush rice paddies that stretch the length and breadth of the country) starts around May/June through to October/November. The rain is not constant: it comes down in short, intense spells, mostly during the afternoon. In all our years of hosting workshops, we’ve never had to cancel because of rain. This season is a great time for photography: the vivid greens of the countryside or the flooded villages on the Tonle Sap lake set against towering clouds and deep blue skies provide a picture perfect backdrop for landscape photography. This season comes with the added bonus that there are fewer tourists around.

Our workshops cover a wide range of subject matter – exploring towns & markets, attending local festivals and ceremonies or exploring the ancient temples and vast countryside, all the while having an experienced instructor on hand to assist, provide tips and answer questions. Our aim is to provide an unforgettable experience where participants experience the beauty and rich culture of Cambodia whilst at the same time developing their photography skills through interaction with, and the support of our team of professionals.
