We were delighted when FamiliesGo! asked us to write a guest post, and jumped on the opportunity to write about one of our favorite places: Cambodia. The first of our two posts is called Angkor Management: Touring Angkor Wat With a Toddler. We hope it encourages other parents to bring their kids to Angkor Wat and the beautiful surrounding Temples of Angkor. If you enjoy the post or find it helpful, please “like” or tweet it. FamiliesGo! is a great resource for families who love to travel and explore!
Cambodians (actually, people from all of the countries we visited in South-East Asia) love children. “Hi, baby!” and “Hi, boy!” were near constant refrains during our stay. One night, when we ate dinner at a do-it-yourself barbecue place on the street in Siem Reap, a waitress took Jude out of his chair and brought him dancing (in our full view) across the street to a French funk band that was playing on a small stage next to a giant gaudy Christmas tree and a tank full of those ubiquitous massage fish. He loved it. “More dancing,” he told us for the rest of the night.
