Cambodia and Vietnam complement each other beautifully: Cambodia has a more laid back charm while Vietnam is the beating heart of Indochina, with fast paced ancient cities. Even in 10 days, you can combine Cambodia and Vietnam with ease, but we’d recommend a little longer to do these wonderful countries justice. You can even cruise between the two along the historic Mekong River.
With jungle-tangled temples, white sandy beaches, a rich cultural heritage and the most hospitable people you’re likely to ever meet; Cambodia is an excellent option when planning your honeymoon. Feel humbled as you watch the sun rise over the majestic Angkor Wat, barter with locals as you shop on the famous floating markets, and ease into a slower pace of life in one of the coastal fishing villages. Cambodia has everything you need for the honeymoon of a lifetime.

When to go
Cambodia is hot all year round and the best time to visit is during the dry season, which runs from November to April. It starts to get wetter in May and the wettest months are September and October. It is still possible to visit during this time as rain usually falls as short sharp storms. November is a fantastic month to visit Cambodia as it is very green after the rainy season and the lakes and rivers are full of water.
