Newly opened in Siem Reap, Jungle Junction is the place for children (and parents!) to have a bit of downtime away from the temples.
Set in a striking modern villa on the outskirts of town, the attractive garden is home to a mix of entertainment for the kiddies, including a playground with protective flooring, a large trampoline and a bouncy castle, plus wining and dining pavilions for parents to relax. Inside the spacious villa, there is a small cinema with room for about 20 children and all the DVD classics are available from Disney Pixar and Dreamworks to Shaun the Sheep and Wallace and Gromit. Our young researchers enjoyed watching ‘Monster House’ again, a contemporary classic. There is also a large indoor playground to escape the heat of the day. For parents, the upstairs area includes a pool table and the bamboo bar, where a selection of drinks and snacks are available. The menus include a good range of children’s food with themed dishes, a huge specialist burger menu and lots of international classics. It’s a great little oasis for adults and children seeking to offer the young ‘uns a diversion away from the temples.
For those visitors who want to see the temples and have children either too young to cope or too disinterested to care, there is also a half day programme available for children to spend time at Jungle Junction in the company of other children and carers, including drinks and snacks. This could be the perfect tonic for very little ones who cannot cope with the heat or a pair of siblings who are templed out on day two when the parents are still raring to go.
