Conservative clothing

If you’re not on a Cambodia tour, you may not be advised that the local Cambodians dress conservatively. In order to respect their culture, avoid revealing or extravagant items of clothing and dress modestly.

Earplugs

Phnom Penh is exactly what you’d expect of a capital city in Asia, alive with energy and noise at all hours. Earplugs are an essential in your Cambodia vacation pack to make sure you get a good night’s rest.

Raincoat

Cambodia boasts a warm and tropical climate, but a distinct wet and dry season set the calendar thanks to its proximity to the equator. Bring a raincoat if your trip coincides with the annual down pour.
