You only need to know what days and times these particular destinations are open to visitors… and the weather forecast. Here are some of the recommended places to visit in June.
1. Angkor Wat
No matter when you visit Cambodia, Angkor Wat is a major reason to visit, and June is no exception. Built between 802 and 1432, Angkor Wat was the largest temple city in the world during the medieval age, and was used as the seat of power by the Khmer kings. The construction of the temple is so marvelous that it attracts thousands of travelers to visited Cambodia each year. It is very deserving of your time, as it's the best extant resource for understanding the Angkorian period's architectural achievements and religious culture. Read more about Angkor Wat.
2. Phnom Penh
As there will be more rain in June, it is a good idea to schedule more time for indoor activities. Phnom Penh is rich in temples and museums, where you can stay for a long time while it is raining outside. You can explore the Royal Palace complex and National Museum to appreciate the beauty of the architecture and learn more about the history of Cambodia. Spend some time at the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek and Tuol Sleng Museum (the S-21 prison) to feel the historical terror the nation suffered under Khmer Rouge rule. There are numerous interesting things to do and see in the capital city. Read more about Phnom Penh.
3. Koh Rong Samloem
There are many beautiful islands scattered along the southern coast of Cambodia. One of the most popular islands is Koh Rong Samloem. The clean and less-crowded beaches on the Saracen Bay are favorite places for travelers to enjoy ocean views and beach time. Scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, and other water activities are available on Koh Rong Samloem.
Kratie is a good place to visit if you are interested in visiting natural parks and rural areas of Cambodia. There are many floating villages around Kratie where you can see the real life of local people. Take a boat trip along the river Koh Trong to explore the traditional villages of Cambodia. If you are lucky, you can see the exceptional Irrawaddy dolphins, which live in the river, popping up their heads above the water surface. There are some French colonial buildings in the center of the town, where you can take a walk and learn more about Kratie.
5. Siem Reap
Important to tourism as the gateway city to Angkor Wat, Siem Reap is also one of the most visited destinations in Cambodia. The ancient city is not only rich in historical temple ruins, but is also rich in other tour activities and vibrant night life. Take a half-day tour on the red dirt roads of Siem Reap to explore the local villages and towns. Or just spend some hours wandering around the Old Market to buy some local products, fruits, handcrafts, and souvenirs. After a day's touring, relax yourself at a traditional Cambodian spa in Lemongrass Garden, and then head to the Pub Street for some Angkor beers on tap and to enjoy the nightlife. Read more about Siem Reap.
Crowding and Costs in June
June is not in the peak season in Cambodia. This is because there is always around a 50% chance of showers. As tourism is limited in this season, hotels have superb deals and tourist attractions are less crowded. Some temples in major tourist cities receive just a handful of foreign visitors in June. It is a good time to save money or plan a budget tour in Cambodia in June.
Clothes to Wear in June
June is a hot and wet month in Cambodia. It can rain during the day and even at night sometimes. You should wear loose-fitting clothes in the daytime. It is good to pack sunglasses, caps, shorts, skirts, light trousers, T-shirts, and other light clothes in your bag. Also remember to bring an umbrella, a waterproof phone bag, and waterproof boots to avoid getting wet in this month.

Our guide Borin - never boring!
Our guide Borin, in Cambodia, was knowledgeable, understanding and thoughtful in every aspect of the plan he put together for our trip to Siem Reap and in its execution. He can read the room, and knew exactly how to pace the tour, when to pause, when to break, and how to prepare us for the maximum benefit. He is extremely kind and caring, and it showed at every turn. He also is a dab hand with the camera, and we have a lot of great pictures to show for it. Kudos to my Asia Highlights coordinator - Cathy Chen, for picking Borin. Borin works with a driver (007) who was also very kind and caring. Whenever we returned to the car, he would have cold towel rolls and chilled water to refresh us. So amazingly considerate. It was an unforgettable experienceMore

We've had such a great experience…
We've had such a great experience planning our honeymoon with Alisa at Asia Highlights! We gave her our dream itinerary, thinking that it might be impossible to do all the things we wanted, but Alisa made our dreams a reality! She's gone so far above and beyond to answer ALL of our questions and make little adjustments that will make a huge impact on our experience.More

In addition, I want to specifically mention the guides provided in certain locations. Rum, in Siem Reap, made the most memorable experience possible. His positivity was contagious - even when it felt like 1000 degrees and we were tired. He brought it all to life, and created a couple days of Ankor Wat, etc. that we will never forget! He heard my daughter's request for specific Cambodian food, and changed our itinerary to go to a village and eat at a locally known shop. He brought the dessert she asked about to us in the car! Overall, he and his driver "Lucky" were a reason to go to Siem Reap. In addition, the other guides (minus one which was switched out immediately) were stupendous. Mon in Bangkok was friendly and provided a great day there; Eak in Chiang Mai gave us a world-class food-tour and day touring the city and its surrounding temples with lots of laughs; Tommy in Hanoi kept us from getting killed in the traffic and gave a stupendous food and architecture/history tour - so very friendly and funny; the fishing village tour in Hoi An, as well as the side-car tour in Saigon, were both unforgettable! Thank you Sharon, and Asia Highlights. Would definitely use again for future trips!More

My daughter and I wanted to discover SE…
My daughter and I wanted to discover SE Asia. Being the first in that region, we wanted to use a tour service company. We ended up using Asia Highlights. From the beginning we were impressed with their services. We left home with of mind because all the pre-travel arrangements were taking care and communicate to us efficiently. All our questions were answered promptly. Once in the countries, we were welcome by our excellent tour guides. Everything was taking care for us. We did not have one issue. They selected the right tours guides for us, they were highly knowledgeable and so much attentive to our needs. We had Dhat in Vietnam and Borin in Siem Reap, Cambodia. I highly recommend Asia Highlights. I came back home so much rested, and with plenty of wonderful pictures and memories. I will definitely use Asia Highlights again for my next trip to Asia.More

Fabulous tour and guide in Cambodia
We have been touring Cambodia, guided by Borin ( and driver 007) for the last 2 days. What a fabulous experience! Borin has been a wonderful guide, the best so far in Southeast Asia, explaining the history and culture of Cambodia through his tours of the temples in and around Angkor, as well as the Landmine museum. He has answered all our questions, made sure we were comfortable, and that we have had great food. 007 made sure we always had enough water and cool towels for our face/neck.We highly recommend Borin as a tour guide for Cambodia!!More

Best Travel Service for Asia Travel
Alisa Liu was in charge of making the arrangements and she helped us from the start to make all of the arrangements and also helped us when we had questions and requested some adjustments. Her service is of the highest professional level. We are 100% confident that our trip will be perfect. We’re also 100% confident that, if anything comes up during our trip, that Alisa will be there to guide us through and take care of us. We won’t even consider using another agency for travel around Asia and we would like to have Alisa work for us again.More

Tour of Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand
The tour guides and drivers were another high point. All were very good, friendly, knowledgeable and spoke English well. There were two that I want to call out for their excellence. Chan Sovannarith in Siem Reap was our guide in Cambodia. He really made the experience special. His knowledge, willingness to answer all my questions, helpfulness and general attitude made him fun to be around. In order to praise the second exceptional guide I have to explain about an unfortunate occurrence that I had. I'm normally a very active senior, but after leaving Cambodia for Laos I was suddenly struck by the most intense back pain I've ever experienced, couldn't even roll over in bed (turned out to be sciatica). The guide, Mr. Sonophet, really went the extra mile. He went with my traveling companion and bought a back brace and medications for me. When that didn't help much he took me to a clinic where I was seen by a doctor, given a shot and pain meds. He hand-made a walking stick for me that I'm still using! He made it possible for me to somewhat participate in the activities, i.e. a bed on the boat down the river. When it was time to move on to Bangkok he got me a wheelchair at the airport. I can't thank him enough for these kindnesses! This problem lasted for the remainder of the trip, through Bangkok and Phuket and these guides were also very helpful getting wheelchairs, etc. It was a terrible disappointment to have this wonderful trip disrupted, but it would have been SO much worse without the great help that I received from the guides and my poor travel companion!More

In good hands with Sam
Sam Ol took very good care of us - lots of information, listened to and answered all our questions, was passionate about the places we visited and about his people and country. He was kind, had a great sense of humor, and made sure we felt safe and comfortable at all times. He helped us to fall in love with Cambodia in 3 short days.More

Best tour guide in Cambodia
When we first arrived at the airport in Siem Riep it was so nice to be greeted by Mr Sam Ol. We instantly fell at home when we saw his friendly smile. We were impressed by his great English and knowledge of the temples. On the tour to the temples Sam took care of us every step of the way. He took awesome pictures of us. It felt like we were on a tour given by our brother who is also a professional photographer. Also, we appreciate his humor as well as the fact he had an answer for every question we had. I give Sam 5 stars, best tour guide ever :)More
