Like June, July, one of the wettest months in the year, is not the time for great festivals in Cambodia. This month remains stifling with infrequent rainfall usually coming in torrents. In late July, the rain tends to become more constant and heavy at times, particularly in coastal and rural areas. High rainfall make it the perfect time of year to visit the flooded forests and floating villages of Tonle Sap Lake by boat, as it swells to more than 5 times its size during wet season. Moreover, during this wet season, visitors to Cambodia may dodge the crowds and receive lower prices.
