Perfect for families pining for a holiday with a side of adventure, Cambodia family holidays are bursting with delights. The temples of Angkor grab most of the headlines – and the bucket-list sight is just as captivating as you’d imagine. Walk along great boulevards of crumbling temples and brush past vines to stare at pristine stone-carved detail. Our tip? Arrive at sunrise for those Instagrammable views of Angkor peeping out from the early morning mist. There’s also the dreamy white-sand beaches of Sihanoukville and its offshore islands that form part of the Banana Pancake Trail. Here, your youngsters
will delight in a multitude of marine adventures from swimming and snorkelling to kayaking and windsurfing. And it’s still entirely possible to get off the tourist map during your Cambodia family holidays: head out into the country's jungle interior and enjoy guided treks towards tiny villages perched along verdant rice terraces for a fascinating insight into the local culture.

Firstly we had a great holiday. Thank you for organising everything at such last minute. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip from start to finish and it all worked very smoothly (thanks!). Pace was really good too - not too hurried but never felt we were killing time.
Why should you book a Cambodia family holiday with us?
Cambodia is coming of age as a destination, and that’s as much for children as couples, so let us help you plan your tailor-made Cambodia family holidays. Our expert team of Asia consultants know Cambodia inside and out, and can help put together a detailed tailor-made Cambodia family holiday itinerary for you that includes a beguiling blend of culture, beach time, adventure and wildlife watching. Even better, our additional services - such as fast track check-in and security, as well as lounge access (even if flying economy) at the airport - are exclusive to us and a godsend on any family trip, as are the services of our clued-up local Concierge, available throughout your stay in the country.
So what to do when you're there? No Cambodia family holidays would be complete without a visit (often by bicycle) to the iconic temples of Angkor, including Angkor Wat itself. Our dedicated guides are brilliant at bringing the temples vividly to life, and we give children brilliant booklets that show how elaborate and brilliantly colourful the temples once would have been. Given Angkor's popularity, we are also expert at making sure you and the family visit at times when there are a fewer crowds.
Another 'must-do' should be a visit to Tonle Sap, a large lake where fishing communities live in floating villages. The children can see what life is like for these families who survive through subsistence fishing. It will be an eye-opener for sure.
From village-life to wildlife, we could also weave a visit to the beautiful Cardomom Mountains into any Cambodia family holiday itinerary, including a stay in an eco-lodge (including, perhaps, one floating on a lake) from which to explore the surrounding jungle to see- with luck - Asian elephants and gibbons.
Finally, head to the south coast for a final stint on the beaches along the coast or at one of the luxurious island retreats offshore from Kep. Some beachtime and snorkelling make for the perfect finale to any Cambodia family holidays.
