Essential information when traveling to Cambodia

There are many important things that you should take into consideration in order to live perfect holidays in the best conditions possible.

 

When should you come and visit Cambodia

You can visit Cambodia all year long but you might not be able to tolerate Cambodia’s hot and humid summers. We then suggest that you come in December or January for nice temperatures or in June and September if you wish to avoid massive crowds.

 

Entry formalities

You will need a visa to visit Cambodia. It is now possible to request it online which is useful in order to avoid queuing for too long at the airport. Otherwise, it is still possible to obtain it on arrival at the airport or at the border if coming from Vietnam, Laos or Thailand. Do not forget to bring one or two identify photos and some dollars to pay.

 

Health

There are no compulsory vaccinations if you travel to Cambodia but it may be necessary to consult your doctor in order to have his/her opinion. You should particularly pay attention to Tetanus (make sure that you are up to date with immunizations) and to Hepatitis A and B vaccines (We suggest that you get vaccinated). If you travel during the monsoon period, Japanese encephalitis should also be considered. Moreover, we suggest you get vaccinated against rabies, typhoid if planning on going to the countryside. If you wish to spend some time in the jungle or on islands, you should take anti-malaria treatments.
