Hello, our family 2 adults and 2 kids aged 10 and 9 will be travelling to Cambodia and Laos in January.
We prefer quieter towns where we can walk or ride a bike with not too much traffic and fun/interesting things for the kids to do. We would appreciate any suggestions in amending the below itinerary, whether re-allocating time at destinations to leaving destinations off to avoid too much travel:
Have you considered adding in Kep —you could continue to there from Kampot , there is a small national park with a viewpoint suitable for kids and a pretty beach area—also plenty of great places to stay.
As much as I love Battambang, I'd lean towards taking a night off Kampot and adding in Kep for two nights or at least visiting it for a day from Kampot. From Kep is a straightforward taxi run back to Phnom Penh.
Note that most taxis in Cambodia do not have seatbelts in the back seat, so if you're booking a ride through your accommodation, do put a request for one with seatbelts—safer for the kids (well, for everyone!)
