INTRODUCTION

For a trip, you cannot decide what to wear just based on your intuition and fashion sense, there are a lot of factors that tourists need to consider when deciding what they should wear while travelling to another country. What you should pack for your trip depends on several factors like the climatic conditions in that place, the dressing habits of locals, and the culture and mindset of the local people. 

Cambodia is home to Angkor Wat and many other marvellous monuments. Over time the tourist footfall in the country has witnessed amazing growth and will continue like this in the future. If you are also planning a trip to Cambodia and looking for some guidance to pack your clothes then this is the article for you. After reading the article you will pack your baggage as it is required.  

THE CLIMATE OF CAMBODIA 

The most important factor behind what type of clothing you should pack before planning a trip to another country is the climatic conditions of that place. You will never want to overburden your luggage with a pair of jackets when the country you are visiting has a temperature above 30 degrees. So before packing your clothes you should be aware of the weather in Cambodia. 

Cambodia has high temperatures and humid weather all year round, so it would be recommended that you pack loose and light clothing while visiting the country. Well, this is overall advice for the whole year, but the tourists will need to consider a few extra things depending upon the time they are planning to visit the country.   

VISITING CAMBODIA DURING DECEMBER-FEBRUARY 

Even during the cool months, the mercury does not drop to a big extent and the temperature remains around 21 degrees to 32 degrees. We would not recommend keeping a heavy jacket while travelling to the country as the majority of tourists do not require that, but keep a light jacket as the nights are a bit cold.  

VISITING CAMBODIA DURING MARCH-JUNE 

This is the hottest time of the year. You should pack light and loose clothing that protects you from the harsh sun and make sure you are carrying sunglasses and hats. 

VISITING CAMBODIA IN JULY-NOVEMBER 

From July to November, Cambodia experiences heavy rain so make sure you are carrying waterproof clothing such as raincoats and suitable footwear to shield from the raging clouds.

WHAT TO WEAR TO THE CULTURAL PLACES 

Visiting temples and other places of cultural significance is one of the most popular tourist activities in Cambodia and if you are visiting the country there is no way that you will miss the amazing temples of the country. But before you visit a such site, you must be aware dress code at cultural and religious sites in Cambodia. 

It does not matter what your gender is, the visitors are expected to wear clothing that covers their legs and shoulders. Revealing dresses are a big no at the religious sites in Cambodia. 

Travellers should prefer wearing long-sleeved clothing. They can also bring a ‘pashmina’ or a plain cloth to wear over their clothes before entering temples.

WHAT TO AVOID WEARING 

If you are not planning to spend your complete trip in the city centres and looking to explore the rural areas of Cambodia, then you must make sure that you dress accordingly. It is common to wear shorts and skirts while in the cities but avoid wearing them when you are in rural areas. The rural people are still somewhat conservative, and you may feel awkward if you wear such clothing among them.  

Angkor Wat is the most popular tourist destination in Cambodia and to maintain the sanctity of the place, the local authorities issued the dress code for Angkor Wat. The dress code prohibits wearing clothes that reveal shoulders and knees. The visitors should wear clothes that cover the shoulders and legs.  

YOUR FINAL LIST OF CLOTHING 

The recommended clothing for tourists in Cambodia would be; 

  • Shorts and T-shirts for the heat (always carry something to cover up) 
  • Long, loose pants 
  • Long-sleeved cotton or linen shirts and tops 
  • Pashmina or other fabric to use to cover up 
  • Comfortable walking shoes or boots 
  • Waterproof items including a raincoat

  • Bathing suit/beach attire 
  • Sun hat
