Rain showers are short and gentle lasting about 30 minutes and nourishing the verdant landscapes. The paddy fields are lush, and this is the Green Season. The banks of the Mekong and Tonle Sap metamorphose into high walls of vibrant greenery. Treetops line the vistas. It’s the rainy season.
It is June when the rains start in earnest. But, even then, the rain doesn’t last too long. A couple of hours at best. Enjoy the slight dip in temperature. The sun is still about in between showers. Catch the stunning evening skies and slate grey clouds which follow the rain and later the incredible thunder and lightning shows during the night.
