Cambodia is a country in Southeast Asia, most of which is endless, densely forested plains. Due to frequent rainy seasons, the country’s soils are considered quite fertile. Cambodia is dominated by a tropical climate that makes the weather hot and humid.
The dry season starts in November and lasts until April. It is followed by a period of downpours when the inhabitants of the country start harvesting. The hottest season in Cambodia is the time between April and June, and the coldest is December and January.
The country’s largest river – the Mekong – is characterized by a tranquil flow. Once a year the river sharply changes its direction and reverses. The famous Water Festival equally popular among tourists and Cambodians is held on the day of the flow change.
