 1. Taste the Circus Show and Acrobatics

Cambodian Circus, a social enterprise located in Siem Reap, with a non-profit school, Phare Ponleu Selpak, based in Battambang, has changed the lives of hundreds of local children. It's a success story no less an attractive, engaging and entertaining day or night. You can watch the schools run circus skills and dance classes throughout the day before attending a real evening performance. Phare circus in Cambodia, Family tours in Cambodia

2. Take the Bamboo Train at Battambang

Less visited and touristy than Siem Reap yet Cambodia’s second-largest city, Battambang is known for its French architecture and cosmopolitan feel. Travel to Cambodia, the bamboo train is a suggestion for kids during Cambodia Trip. Affectionately known as ‘Norrie’, the bamboo train is essentially a bamboo platform that balances over two sets of wheels and is powered by a motorbike engine. It was once used to great effect in the days following the overthrow of the Khmer Rouge and proved a lifeline to villages needing to transport goods across the country. Today, with the roads much improved, Norrie has become more of a tourist attraction, albeit a kooky one. Bamboo train in Battambang, Cambodia Family trips

3. Cycle around the ruins at Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat is the ideal place for any trip in Cambodia including Cambodia Family tour with kids. Whilst you can easily visit the main temples of Angkor Wat, Bayon and Angkor Thom by foot, we find that families of every age much prefer cycling, thereby being able to explore the outer lying ruins more easily. Sunset at Angkor Wat can be a very touristy (a.k.a. busy) affair so you’ll get a much better view from atop one of the less-visited ruins – and a view to yourselves too.

4. Visit a Floating Village on Tonlé Sap Lake

On the shores of the massive Tonlé Sap Lake, the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia and one of the richest fishing grounds in the world, you’ll find Kompong Phluk, a village of floating houses suspended on 8-foot stilts. Your kids will love the boat trip visiting the village, weaving in and out of the stilts, checking out the local houses. Impress them even more by telling them that this is the only lake in the world where the waters change direction, then see if they can find out why… Tonle Sap Lake, Cambodia family vacation packages

5. Explore the Beaches of Kep

Kep beaches may not be exactly what you shoot, but maybe it's a new experience, too boring with the usual beautiful white sand beach. Koh Tonsay Island is surrounded by flotsam beaches with chickens and wandering cows strolling like their own playground. Enjoy the breathtaking view of the beauty of nature through the coconut trees on the banks of the freshwater. Another activity when jumping on the Kep journey is to visit Kep National Park. Walk along the trails, immerse yourself in dense tropical forests and enjoy the clean, fresh air you can see in any bustling city. KEP Beach, Cambodia Family Vacations

6. Visit Religious Sites in Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia, where the religion and beliefs of the people are clearly revealed through the many sacred sites scattered along with the city. Royal Palace is the main attraction with a gilded roof designed in the classical architectural style of the Khmer. Nearby, the Silver Pagoda is famous for its solid 90 kg Buddha image sparkling by more than 9000 diamonds. Silver Pagoda, Cambodia Family Vacations

7. Watch Movie House in Phnom Penh

Empire is a cute Arthouse theater near the riverbank in Phnom Penh. They show different movies every night. The price is very reasonable and you can pay $ 3.50 USD for an all-day fee, including movies for the whole day! On Saturday, there is a special children's session and it costs only $ 1.50. They screen a different children's movie every week. Empire is also a bar and a restaurant and you can also hire a cinema out for private screening.

8. Quad Biking in the Cambodia Countryside

Our quad bike adventure with Quad Adventure Cambodia took us into the countryside around Siem Reap, through rice fields and local villages, as well as to a local crocodile farm. With two people per quad, an adult and child on each, the tracks are muddy, bumpy and wet, providing a truly adventurous time. Everybody absolutely loved it.

10. Discover the Nature in Mondulkiri

This place is blessed wonderful landscapes by the Mother of Nature created by lush green mountains, thick tropical forests, spectacular waterfalls, and rolling grass hills. Due to the lack of tourism development, Mondulkiri can be a paradise for those who want to challenge the beaten life with its rich ecosystem and rustic atmosphere. Spend a few days in hand-built bungalows to learn about the tribal lifestyles of ethnic minorities, have practical experience in growing rice, fruit trees, vegetables and then collecting strawberries fresh, coffee and cashew nuts. After a delicious dinner, enjoy an enjoyable night with folk songs performed by locals.
