Angkor Wat is the perfect exotic dose for your children. HolidayIQ reviewer Vaibhav Saini says, "It is an absolute must if you are in the city, it's splendid and beautiful. Remnants of such history are sheer pleasure to look and explore. Make sure you take a complete day for these as there are around 5-6 temples and extremely unique in their own way. Also, ensure you start early as the temple complexes are closed by 5:30 PM. Carry water as it gets real hot in the day."

Also worth trying are Bamboo Train in Battambang which were used by Cambodians to transport supplies and food, today is purely a tourist attraction. Bat Cave and Killing Caves are about a 30 minutes’ drive from Battambang town where millions of bats reside. At sunset every night the bats leave the cave to find food and the sight is breath-taking.

One of the best things in Mauritius with children is the underwater exploration inside a real submarine. Take in the stunning vista of the marine world, moraines, coral reef and different variety of fishes as the Blue Safari Submarine drops deeper underwater. It's a time-stopping experience. 

HolidayIQ reviewer Anupama says, "The blue sea, white sand, the coral reefs, parasailing, undersea walk, the cruise...altogether a perfect vacation.  A kaleidoscope of colour and activity, sight, smell and sounds. The city has plenty of character, activities, and in some quarters, signs of its past elegance are still evident. You can take a ride in the submarine, sub-scooters in Blue Safari Submarine. One of the most memorable days of the visit to Mauritius is, without a doubt, a cruise on one of the catamarans."
