Isn't the weather great?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Isn't the weather great?

Post by Doc67 » Sat Dec 07, 2019 11:46 am

Today, 11:40, Daun Penh ( after a morning of sunshine on the balcony too). Check out the overnight low...19.7!

Am I alone in loving this weather?

No you're not alone. I love it. Perfect weather for me. I can walk around comfortably in just a shirt without arriving at my destination covered in sweat, and it 's saving me a ton of money on not having to use the A/C.

Having been here a few years now, I don't quite remember it ever getting this cold however.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

That's what I thought, but my trusty thermometer is showing some very low temps, particularly overnight, which really surprised me.

I always remember a week or two of weather like this either in December or January. Basically once the rainy season ends and the winds change direction. My favourite time of year by far, weather-wise.

The locals love it - parading around in their turtle necks and showing off their warm winter gear.

Just amazing, had a smile on my face the whole morning. It's a bit windy in the afternoon but who cares.
