Other Need-to-Know Information about Cambodia
The Cambodian culture is quite unique, having been influenced by Buddhism, Hinduism, the Angkor civilization, and French colonialism. There are a number of ethnic minorities and hill tribes, in addition to the Khmer majority. Through your Cambodia motorbike travel, you will see experience the food, clothing, architecture, and more that has been created by this unique culture.
The natural beauty of the land itself will also leave an impression. There are dozens of tree species, and hundreds of different bird, fish, reptile, and mammal species, thanks to the tropical forests that dominate this part of the world. Cambodia has established several national parks and biosphere reserves to help protect these plants and animals.
Cambodia’s geography consists of a low-lying central plain, surrounded by highlands, and even low mountains. Another prominent feature is the Mekong River, which builds in strength through Cambodia before entering Vietnam. The climate is similar to the rest of southeast Asia, with monsoons, and two distinct seasons. The rainy season lasts from May to October and is the cooler part of the year, while the dry season runs from November to April and can see temperatures of around 40ºC. You will definitely want to plan any sort of Cambodia motorbike travel during the dry season!
As a westerner, you’ll need to obtain a visa to enter the country. This can be done in advance from a Cambodian embassy or consulate, on arrival at both international airports and some land crossings, or online through Cambodia’s e-Visa program. You’ll most likely arrive by plane, and there are international airports in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. There are several land border crossings open to foreigners, and you can even arrive by boat from Laos, Vietnam, or Thailand.
