Shopping in Cambodia is not like in Bangkok or Singapore in the South East Asia. But when you travel to Phnom Penh or Siem Reap, don't miss some local market to buy some local souvenirs.
Cambodia have many different public holidays, Like the Western countries, the people work 8 hours a day at the office, shcool (7am-11am or 1pm-5pm), and it is a Buddhist country, the people must stop working to respect their national religion.
Cambodia’s official currency is the riel, but you’ll see many people using the US Dollar to pay for everyday expenses. Don’t be fooled into changing dollars into riel at the land border crossings! The touts will tell you that the dollar is now not used anymore, so you have to change into riel at their ridicolous low exchange rate.
Watch all the warning when you travel in the countryside, stay on clear pathways as there may be landmines or unexploded ordnance. At the more remote crossing points, conditions can be basic. Don't travel by yourself to some jungle without any sign of warnings. Because the landmines & unexplosive are still big problem after the war.
Cambodia is a tropical humid country, the heat and the change of climate could cause the sickness for you. If you visit in the hot season, the heat is a big problem for your touring. Wearing the hat, drinking much clean water is alway the best advice. You also never know what happens on your trip, especially some unfortunate case of diarrhoea. You should bring your pharmacy in case. Sometimes you even can not find your right medicine in the places you travel.
Cambodia can be visited at any time of year. The ideal months are December and January, when humidity levels are relatively low, there is little rainfall and a cooling breeze whips across the land, but this is also peak season when the majority of visitors descend on the country.
Cambodia might be one of South East Asia’s smallest countries, the country was most destroyed by Pol Pot in the 1970s, but getting to become an highlight in South East Asia. Cambodia is well- known for its Angkor Wat Temple which were built in the 12th Century, and listed as a World's Heritage Wonder.
