A honeymoon in Cambodia is a quintessential Asian experience. With the mighty Mekong meandering through the country, you’ll find rice paddy fields, tiny fishing villages and verdant jungle along with beaches and fantastic dining.

The capital, Phnom Penh, where recent history looms large in this former French colony and the tours of the city’s sights relating to the Khmer Rouge’s genocidal regime is gut-wrenching. Cambodia is also home to one of Southeast Asia’s iconic sights – the unmissable UNESCO World Heritage Site Angkor Wat. The city of temples was built in the year 1112 and they have uncovered only a fraction from the jungle. 

Although investment in recent years meant some over-tourism of beaches like Sihanoukville, Cambodia still has less developed beach destinations than its towering neighbour, Thailand such as Koh Rong and Koh Russey which are essential stops for a laid-back South-East Asia beach vibe.


The best time to visit Cambodia for honeymoon is during the dry season from November to April. The rainy season starts in May peaking during September and October when rain can be heavy on the Gulf of Thailand coast.


Is Cambodia good for a honeymoon? Yes, it’s perfect for culture, history and beach lovers.

How long do you need for a honeymoon in Cambodia? We recommend at least 7 nights to explore the country but you’ll need to add on additional time for the beach.
