Cambodia in December 2018 - book activities in advance?

Our family (two adults, three teenagers) is spending ten days in Cambodia this December. We’ve already booked accommodation in Phnom Penh, Battambang and Siem Reap, and transport between those places.

We will be there across Christmas which seems to be peak season, at least for Australians travelling abroad.

Each of the teenagers is researching one of the locations we will be staying at, and they already have some strong preferences for things they’d like to do. How far in advance do activities book out at this time of year in Cambodia? Do they book out at all? as we only have ten days we don’t really want to waste any of our travel time searching out things to do when we are there, but also, we dont want our itinerary to be so set in stone that we are unable to enjoy time doing things that we discover when we are there.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

I can only speak to SR and there most things can be booked a couple days ahead of time if not the day before even at peak times. Of course it would help if you mentioned the specific things in each city.

Cambodia is probably the easiest DIY country in which i’ve travelled. Depending on what your teens turn up that they’d like to do, in most situations arrangements can be made on the ground quite quickly, cheaply and painlessly. Perhaps if you give us some idea of some of their preferences we’ll be able to advise whether or not pre booking would be advisable during what is peak season.

Book when you arrive for the best deals. Online in advance costs more.
