Siem Reap Family Holiday
If you are planning to treat your family with a get-away you will not forget, set your sights on Siem Reap in Cambodia. With a steeped history, a range of fun-filled family activities and deep cultural experiences, there is no wonder that Siem Reap has made itself as an unbeatable family holiday destination in Southeast Asia.
The Angkor Archaeological Park is everyone’s prime reason for visiting Siem Reap. The Angkor Complex conforms hundreds of amazing structures such as pagodas, mystical temples and imperial residences built from thousands of years ago. With Angkor Wat as the chief attraction, this little temple town is now the country’s main center of tourism which welcomes more than one million tourists every year.
Booking an Accommodation for your Siem Reap Family Holiday
There is no shortage of places to stay in Siem Reap. In fact, there are plenty of Siem Reap resorts & hotels which offer family rooms that can accommodate up to five guests. Moreover, there are activities and excursions specially designed for families who would like to go on adventure and experience what the destination has to offer.
Summer lasts all-year-round in the Kingdom of Wonder and one thing that should be taken into consideration is to book a Siem Reap accommodation with swimming pools. The weather is often hot and humid, and lounging by the pool after a long day of temple exploration at the Angkor Archaeological Park can just be the perfect way to cap off the day. It is also a plus point if your accommodation has a green space for your kids to run around.
Your Siem Reap family accommodation should also have in-house activities that will keep your little ones entertained while you simply relax and melt your stress away. Fun and engaging activities like a Siem Reap cooking class for kids, the art of lotus flower folding or some board games must be on offer while the parents take the opportunity to join a yoga & meditation class, or simply savor the flavors of Cambodian cuisine.
Siem Reap Family Holiday Must-see Attractions
You can not come to Siem Reap without a visit to Angkor Wat. It is the cherry on the cake of your visit to Cambodia. This Hindu temple is the world’s largest religious building, regarded as the most majestic piece of architecture ever built by man. Angkor Wat with its five iconic towers is an amazing backdrop for your family photograph.
If you would like to dig deeper into a real wilderness experience, a visit to Beng Mealea can satisfy that and more. Beng Mealea is an un-restored temple found in the 19th century which covers one of the largest acres of jungle terrain. This temple ruin is about 60 km from the main temple complex, but it is worth the drive!

When to Visit Siem Reap
Siem Reap is perfect to visit year-round. On the other hand, if dragging around the massive crowds is not your idea of a great family vacation, you may want to avoid the high season which is from October down to March. Booking in advance is recommended during the peak period as the hotel rooms get filled up very quickly. The low season which is also referred to as the ‘Green Season’ is from April to September. It is actually a great time to visit Cambodia. Many return tourists say that it is the most ideal time to visit Siem Reap because the room rates are low, the attractions are not packed with tourism crowds plus you can experience more of Cambodia.
