Cambodia is a hidden gem. There are so many exciting options for every member of the family here. One of the most special things about the temples in Cambodia is that they are not just for looking at. Hidden in lush jungles, overgrown with massive tree roots and encroaching greenery, these temples are meant to be explored. Your kids can pretend they’re Indiana Jones with adventures through the jungle and play hide-and-seek among the statues and ruins. It’s a fun way to get your kids involved in the culture.
Another way to expand the minds and palates of little ones is through the thriving, colourful markets of Phom Penh or the floating markets of the Mekong and Sangker River. Children and adults alike will be intrigued by the vibrant fruits and veggies, fragrant spices, bright fabrics and hand carved statues. Visiting the markets is a great way for your children to interact with the locals and get out of their comfort zones.
For older children, examining Cambodia’s tragic history is educationally enriching and will surely spark an impactful family dialogue. For this we recommend a stop at the Landmine Museum, sure to be an inspiring experience for the entire family.
Don’t let Cambodia’s small size fool you, it’s big on excitement. A family holiday to Cambodia should be on every family’s bucket list.
