The month starts with a dry and hot feeling in the atmosphere that generally leaves the people living there uncomfortable. However during the latter part of the month the monsoons season begins with its full force and there are downpours in almost all parts of the country. The temperature at an average is at 30°C. The humidity in the air makes it hard for a person to feel at ease.

The rain and showers do help to make the climate a little bit better but the general weather remains hot and humid. Not only the sun but that can also cause great sunburns at this time of the year in Cambodia and so for that reason it is not at all recommended to visit the beach at this time of the year. The evenings are a little cooler with sunshine along with a gentle breeze in a number of days.
