Lesley Schofield, from our supplier All Points East, shares her tips for traveling in Cambodia with kids:
“Cambodia is very popular with families; there’s quite a lot to do. At Angkor Wat, people think the children will get “templed out” but with some of the more remote ones, because they’re so ruined, there’s not a problem with kids climbing up over them or being on the stones – it’s quite Indiana Jones-y.
With kids you don’t want them trailing round after you getting bored with all the history, so we like to spread it out. See sunrise at Angkor, then once things start to get hotter you go back to the hotel, lounge around the pool, go to the market for lunch, then go back later on in the day when most of the crowds have gone That also allows you to avoid the heat of the day, and there’s less crowds. If you’re lucky, at some temples you’ll be the only people there. It’s a real, wild jungle experience.”
