Average time to visit
Cambodia is hot all year round and the best time to visit is during the dry season, which runs from November to April. It starts to get wetter in May and the wettest months are September and October. It is still possible to visit during this time as rain usually falls as short sharp storms. November is a fantastic month to visit Cambodia as it is very green after the rainy season and the lakes and rivers are full of water.

Sophie Jones (Staff)
The Park Hyatt is such a beautiful property and I absolutely loved the design especially the hanging swings around the main courtyard! Also it has amazing location right in the middle of Siem Reap just a short walk away from the Old Market but even though the Park Hyatt is located in a busy area I couldn't hear anything from my room at all.
Evi-Elli La Valle (Staff)
Park Hyatt has amazing ties with the local culture and community and this made a real impression on me during my stay there. The hotel itself is Khmer (Cambodian) owned and has been designed to show visitors all the beautiful things that their country has to offer. There is also the Arts Lounge, a vibrant space in the heart of the hotel that is dedicated to promoting modern or traditional Cambodian art and some of the artists have even gone on to be recognised internationally. They are also committed to supporting the local community and have been involved in projects such as creating a sewing training centre for young local women. Guests are able to get involved with the amazing work that they are doing and it has been recognised in the Conde Nast Traveller 'World Savers Awards'.
