Description of Cambodia family holiday for teenagers

This Cambodia family holiday for teenagers is aimed at those with children under the age of 18. It’s also a small group tour and you’ll spend eight adventurous days travelling with three to five other like minded families. Cambodia is a fantastic destination for kids - Phnom Penh impresses with its museums and lively markets; Battambang is drenched in old-world charms; and Siem Riep is both a dynamic city in its own right as well as being the gateway to the fascinating temples of Angkor Wat. And then there are the plentiful outdoor excursions that’ll get you and your family acquainted with traditional Khmer life. You’ll be able to visit rural homestays, cycle out into the countryside and take boat trips along the Mekong, soaking up the buzz of city life.

Our group sizes are small enough that you’ll be able to visit out-of-the-way places, use local boats, trains and buses and blend in with local life. They’re also large enough to allow a good social mix; and many families stay friends long after the holiday is over. There’s plenty of downtime built in along with the action, and all our accommodation is family friendly - with most places featuring a pool.

Holiday type
This trip is for families only (including any aunts, uncles or cousins who’d like to come along, of course). As long as you’re travelling with a child under the age of 18, you’re a family in our eyes. Plus, unlike other travel companies, children aged 17 years and younger receive a 10% discount off the price of their trip. Travelling our way is a bit like travelling with a group of friends. Made up of 3-5 like-minded families, the kids tend to hit it off on these trips straight away, allowing you to enjoy some well earned R&R. We often find the whole family ends up making friendships with people from all over the world, staying in touch long after the adventure ends.

Our family group sizes are small enough to avoid the crowds and reach some out-of-the-way places, but big enough for a good social mix. Our average group size of 10 allows us to hop aboard local boats, buses or trains, eat at friendly, family-run restaurants and kick back in traditional accommodation and homestays.

We know the biggest challenge on a family trip is keeping the kids entertained. So we’ve planned in advance. Nearly all of our hotels feature pools, and each day has a great mix of action-packed adventure and flexible free time. Your local leader can also suggest activities based on your kid’s hobbies or school curriculum.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Cambodia family holiday for teenagers

Environment

Unfortunately, Cambodia has a big problem with plastic pollution and so on this tour all our travellers will receive a canvas bag to use throughout. This small gesture will help to assist in the campaign to stop the use of plastic bags whilst shopping and visiting local market places for souvenirs.

Water is a precious commodity in this part of the world and our trained tour leaders are well versed in advising travellers on initiatives to manage their water consumption whilst in Cambodia. Plus, in our private vans we supply families with large communal bottles of drinking water, so they can refill them as and when they need to.

As a company we take a real interest in the environments we visit, on this trip in particular we take our travellers to the Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity that saves animals from trafficking. We also stop off at the Banteay Srei Butterfly Centre that features a live display of a stunning variety of Cambodian butterflies. This project also trains rural families living in the area about the importance of sustainable butterfly farming, the value of the forest and the importance of conserving it.

Community

Our company is committed to employing local leaders for all of our trips and that includes our family range. All of our leaders are specifically trained on responsible travel and are encouraged to live and breathe it throughout each and every departure they run. All travellers are briefed on responsible travel upon their first welcome meeting, which is almost always on the first evening of each trip. We source produce locally throughout the trip, eat at local restaurants and encourage our travellers to purchase souvenirs from local artisans.

All aspects of this trip (on the ground) are operated by Cambodians (most of whom live locally) including all our leaders, vehicle drivers, local site guides and accommodation providers. There are opportunities to visit several temples on this trip. It is respectful to cover the shoulders and knees when visiting temples in Cambodia. Our leaders dress in this manner and encourage travellers to do the same in order to show respect for the sites they’re visiting and the local people for whom these sites hold great significance.

We have a foundation that was set up to empower travellers to have a positive impact on the communities they visit. It now supports more than 50 local, grassroots projects around the world. Over the past 15 years, the foundation has distributed over AU $5 million to projects tackling areas such as sustainable development, human rights, child protection, environmental conservation, wildlife protection, education and healthcare. In Cambodia once such organisation we support is The Children's Surgical Centre in Phnom Penh, which provides free surgery and treatment to children. We also collect children's glasses that are then reconfigured and fitted by professional ophthalmologists. If you can help, please bring children's old spectacles and give them to your leader at the start of your trip.
