Tour Description

9 Day Cambodia Package Tour

On your Cambodia vacation experience the warm and friendly way of life of the Cambodian people. A tour of Cambodia is as much about exploring its rich history and magnificent temples, as it is about connecting with the beautiful Cambodian people. This Cambodia package tour was built specifically with families in mind. It is fully customizable.

You’ll ride through rice-fields with a local Cambodian tour guide, watch amazing circus performers tumble and twirl, then read and craft with local kids. On a tour of Lake Tonle Sap, marvel at the way families have lived for generations on floating villages as you meander their waterways.

The highlight of most Cambodia tours is a visit to Angkor Wat, a UNESCO world heritage site. We’ve picked the best tour guides who have been specially trained to engage kids. They’ll bring alive the history and stories of these ancient temples at Angkor Thom, the temple with its many faces, and Banteay Srei, the temple with intricately carved lacey walls. Your kids will love weaving in and out of Ta Prohm, the temple engulfed by Bayan trees, which was made famous by the movie, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

After soaking in the fascinating history on your Cambodia tour, you’ll head for some relaxing beach time on the laid back white sand beaches of Koh Rong Island. This jungle island paradise is just the place for a little digital detox. As you unwind, spend your days as you like – go snorkeling, diving, hiking, or kayaking. But if you’re lucky enough to catch a dark moonless night, head to Long Set Beach, Lonely Beach or Coconut Beach for a swim in an enchanting bioluminescent bay. 

Wondering if Cambodia is a country that kids will enjoy? Here’s why we thought Cambodia with kids is fantastic! All our tours are fully customizable. Here are a few other fun things to do in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Your Cambodia tour begins this evening with a stunning performance by the Cambodian Circus, also known as the hugely talented Phare Ponleu Selpak from your VIP seats. Literally translated as ‘’the brightness of the arts’’, this Artistic and Social Center has been running as a non-profit association since 1994, and was founded by a group of young ex-refugees from Battambang Province. With your reserved VIP seats, there is no need to wait in line your seat is reserved for you! Sitting in the center of the big top tent, you will witness some remarkable acrobatics and visual arts while supporting one of Cam- bodia’s most inspiring projects. Performances start at 8:00pm.

Meals Included: None
Overnight at Mulberry Boutique Hotel – Family Suite

Day 2Siem Reap: Angkor Wat and Tethered Balloon Ride and Angkor Thom

On this second morning of your Cambodia vacation, we head to the world famous Angkor Wat in an air-conditioned van with your guide. Explore this majestic temple throughout the morning while it is still cool and has fewer tourists. Mid-morning experience the thrill of a tethered hot air balloon ride to get a bird’s eye view of the temples, before returning to your hotel.

In the afternoon head to Angkor Thom, the famous walled city, and see the many temples within its borders, including the fascinating Bayon temple with its many magnificent faces smiling out. There are several beautiful spots from which to watch the sunset. Discuss with your guide where you would like to be and then relax and enjoy a memorable end to your day at the temples.

As you head back towards town you can stop at Banteay Kdei and Ta Prohm, two of the prettiest temples in the complex, where you can enjoy climbing through these smaller unique temples. Return to your hotel for lunch, or have your guide help you find a good place to eat in town. Remember to take a look at our Cheat Sheet which lists a number of our favorite restaurant recommendations!

Sunday afternoons are special at Journeys Within Our Community, our company’s non-profit organization. We hold our art class for local students at 2:30pm – a no-pressure class where children are invited to come, play games, sing songs and do a simple and rewarding art project. The children are broken up into groups and you can join a group and help the little ones with scissors and other tricky tasks and give the older students encouragement and attention. It is fun for the whole family and a great way to get involved and interact with students. You will also have a chance to meet with our scholarship students and gain a greater understanding of the work we do within our community.

Please note: You should arrive at 2:30pm so you can get an overview of JWOC before jumping in to help!

Family Traveller

Our family visited Cambodia with our then 2 month old, 5 year old, and 8 year, but I was unsure about how we would manage in this developing country with such young kids. It was our first experience taking a fully guided custom tour and the team at Journey’s Within just blew me away with the experiences they took us to, and the quality of their guides. They anticipated our needs every step of the way.
