What to pack for Cambodia

Experience Tick Thin Icon

Comfortable sandals or shoes

Whether you’re on a Cambodia escorted tour or passing through on your own, there is no doubt you will find yourself walking for hours each day, so comfortable walking shoes are a must have for your packing list.

Conservative clothing

If you’re not on a Cambodia tour, you may not be advised that the local Cambodians dress conservatively. In order to respect their culture, avoid revealing or extravagant items of clothing and dress modestly.

Phnom Penh is exactly what you’d expect of a capital city in Asia, alive with energy and noise at all hours. Earplugs are an essential in your Cambodia vacation pack to make sure you get a good night’s rest.

Lightweight clothing

Cambodia doesn’t get cold, with year-round temperatures ranging from warm to hot. Pack lightweight and absorbent clothing like linen or very fine cotton. It’s ideal for days of adventuring in this part of the world.

Cambodia boasts a warm and tropical climate, but a distinct wet and dry season set the calendar thanks to its proximity to the equator. Bring a raincoat if your trip coincides with the annual down pour.
