Cambodia is one of the quieter, less visited countries in Southeast Asia. It’s a country with a deep and complicated history. There is a lot to learn and see on a Cambodia family adventure. Its breathtaking ancient temples and wild, untouched countryside strike a wonderful harmony between man-made and natural beauty. This balance makes Cambodia the perfect place to explore with kids.
Bike Through the Countryside of Siem Reap
We’ll ride past the ancient reservoirs of Prasat Kravan and Srah Srang to Ta Prohm, a temple held together by tree roots, and Bayon Temple decorated with over 100 carved faces. Then we’ll meet a local family and join them for lunch in their home. Afterwards, we’ll bike to Angkor Wat, built in the 1100s, and explore the grand and intricately decorated stone temple.
See the Phare Circus
The Phare Circus is not the same as a traditional Western circus. It’s a circus of acrobatics and impressive acts performed by human performers only. They are skilled performers who use dance, music, theater and circus arts to tell the stories of Cambodian culture.
Kayak on Tonle Sap Lake
Part of what makes Cambodia so exciting is the natural wonders it’s home to. One of those wonders, Tonle Sap Lake is a great place for an outdoor adventure. We’ll kayak through sunken fields and floating forests as part of our exploration. There is even a small floating village we’ll visit to meet locals and have a tasty countryside meal.
Visit the APOPO Center
We’ll visit the APOPO Center where rats are being used to locate landmines and sniff out tuberculosis. We will learn about the history of conflict in Cambodia, the impact of the landmines on local communities, and have an opportunity to meet the HeroRATs.
