Cambodia With Kids – Planning A Family Holiday To Cambodia
Have you ever looked for a slightly more adventurous family holiday? One where your children can still enjoy a kids’ club, child friendly restaurants etc; where you can relax and unwind but the emphasis is also on family fun, discovery, educational activities? I’ve recently come across VIVID Travel who may just be the company to tick all of those boxes!
What you look for from a family holiday often changes over time. Sometimes a fun city break is perfect, other times I know I want to flop on a beach and do absolutely nothing, my husband likes to have places to explore. But especially as the children grow and develop different interests, a family holiday destination becomes more important in terms of what it offers for everyone.
VIVID Travel offer family adventure holidays completely geared with children in mind, with itineraries that are completely tailored to you. Older children with a zest for adventure will love exploring Chile with its volcanoes and waterfalls amid lush surroundings, with cycling and trekking thrown in. Teens may like the white water rafting! The penguin colony on Chiloé Island would be a good family crowd pleaser too.
Cambodia With Kids
Another trip that caught my eye was the Trail of Temple Treasures in exotic Cambodia. I’m a big fan of animal rescue places, so a visit to Phnom Tamao to meet the rescue bears would be high on my list: Free the Bears (an Australian company) have been in Cambodia for 17 years and have rescued over 200 bears. Some come from private residences, others from wildlife traffickers – a very worthy cause.
This sample 14 day trip also covers a scavenger hunt around the famous temples of Angkor, Siam Reap and the city sights of Phom Penh. You may not initially think Angkor Wat with kids would be fun to explore but older children will love seeing where Tomb Raider was filmed and younger will marvel at the fairytale landscape.
The final 7 days are all about the beach. With plenty of down time on the coastal town of Kep to meander around the nearby islands, snorkel in the clear waters, trek in the lush jungle or simply soak up some rays. Accommodation is at the Veranda Natural Resort – perched on the hillside of Kep National Park, overlooking the sea. With pools, a kids club and a spa set in a natural flourishing tropical landscape – anyone picturing themselves there? There are clearly so many things to do in Cambodia!
When is Best to Visit Cambodia?
Peak season is between November and February, when it is cooler to explore the temples but still warm on the beaches.
So why choose VIVID Travel?
I’ve never really been on a fully organised, tailored holiday before – just self organised trips or a package deal. However, I can certainly see the appeal. When venturing a little off the beaten track, it is reassuring once you have kids that logistics and practicalities are taken care of. The team at VIVID spend a month every year visiting their speciality countries to provide the latest information and use that personal knowledge to craft your family holiday.
These tours are entirely tailored to families needs. If you’re unsure about where you want to go on holiday, simply tick off what you like to do on holiday and then select who is travelling with you. Voila! You will be given suggestions to explore, safe in the knowledge that they can be tweaked for the needs of any family. Better still, Vivid have a best price guarantee that if you find the same trip cheaper as a package or as separate components, they will price match and give you £100 off your next VIVID holiday. Certainly worth checking out.

We had such an amazing trip to Cambodia last year, I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a more adventurous family holiday with some beach thrown in - love the work with the rescued bears too. And I agree, it's comforting having experts to help sort the logistics and arrange some fun things for kids to do as well.

Hi was just wondering if you used the company in this article or a different one? Could you give me any advice? Kids are 9 and 12 when I'm looking to travel.
