25-34 year old male
I instantly fell in love with South-East Asia and its people when I first travelled around Asia in 2003. The history, culture and the people make Asia a fascinating and magical destination. I now run a specialist Asian Travel Company called 'See Asia Differently' as well as ‘Gibbon Spotting Cambodia’. Our experiences are all about you and we offer tailor-made and packaged holidays to Asia; allowing our visitors to experience the true Asia. South East Asia is extraordinary captivating and offers its visitors a wealth of experiences and diversity that I believe no other area of the world can offer. It has something for everyone, from the adventurer, wildlife and beach lover or the 'tomb raider' and is also fabulous for families. I do hope that you like the places that I have suggested and the Tips that I have given to assist you in getting the most out of your personal adventure to Asia. Happy Travels from all of us at www.SeeAsiaDifferently.com

I am raising my family in Siem Reap and regularly take my kids (aged one and three years old) to Happy Hop Playground. It's filled with bouncing castles, swings and the other usual fun stuff to keep them amused while my wife and I enjoy a cold drink and catch up with friends.
Children’s pottery is a fun way for kids to get their hands dirty while the whole family learns how to make a ceramic pot. After the lesson, the staff will fire the pot for you and later deliver it to your hotel, making for a great souvenir!
I've ridden motos and done quad biking and cycling around Cambodia, but going through the rice fields and villages on a horse is definitely one of the most unique and peaceful ways to see the more tranquil parts of the country. And if you're new to horse riding, there is a European instructor who will teach and guide you slowly through the beautiful landscape.
I've seen at least seven Cambodian Circus shows so far, and the talented performers never fail to impress me with their acrobatic talent, aerial tricks and humour. There are always new storylines throughout the year, and my kids have a good laugh whenever I take them with me. It's a great show for everyone to enjoy, and the revenues are invested in training and education programs for the performers, all of whom have come from disadvantaged backgrounds.
This 14-hole mini golf course is a fun activity for the family. While the kids are playing golf, adults can enjoy Angkor Wat Putt's bar and comfy seating area.
Beng Mealea is an underrated temple that is not on many tourists' holiday radar, but it is definitely the most fun temple for kids to visit. Here they can climb on the fallen temple - which is a massive jungle gym, quite literally!
