Geography

The political geography of Cambodia is defined by 13° N latitude 105° E longitude. Cambodia\'s 2,572 km border is split among Vietnam (1,228 km), Thailand (803 km) and Laos (541 km), with 443 km as coastline. Cambodia geography\'s most dominant features are Tonle Sap (Great Lake) and the Mekong River, which traverses the country from north to south. The country is completely within the tropics and its southernmost tip is only slightly more than 10° above the equator.

Geography of Cambodia in reference to it climate

The climatic geography of Cambodia is mostly monsoonal and has clearly demarcated wet and dry seasons of relatively equal length. The mercury is always pretty high and the level of humidity is pretty high. Two thirds of the country is covered by forests. A lot of the forest cover has however been degraded due to practice of slash-and-burn and shifting agriculture.

The temperature is mostly level throughout the Tonle Sap Basin area, with minimal chnges from the average temperature. The annual mean temperature is around 25°C. The maximum mean has till date bean about 28 degrees Celsius. The minimum mean has so far been about 22 degrees Celsius. Maximum temperatures higher than 32°C are commonplace. Sometimes just before the onset of the rainy season temperatures often rise to more than 38°C. Minimum temperatures rarely fall below 10°C. January is the coldest month, and April is the warmest. Typhoons--tropical cyclones--that often devastate coastal Vietnam rarely cause damage in Cambodia.

The geography of Cambodia is one of the reasons that contribute to Cambodia\'s immense popularity with tourists.
