This is an ambitious option for a family holiday, but no less magical if you know what you’re in for. Many of our featured hotels offer family rooms and spaces for family entertainment and relaxation, but most of them are catered towards adults. Once you’ve seen the jaw-dropping remnants of Angkor Wat, take the kids to the nearby zip-line eco park, where you can glide through the thick jungle canopy while getting a bird’s eye view of the foliage below. Elsewhere, the stilt villages on Tonlé Sap Lake will leave your children slack jawed at the ingenuity that some cultures go to in order to adapt to their surroundings. The Cambodian people have a gentle nature so your family will be welcomed warmly.
