The Banteay Srey Butterfly Center (BBC) is an lovely attraction in the Siem Reap Province to do with your family or guests.
The center is located 25 km north of Siem Reap, on the road to the Landmine Museum and Bantey Srey temple. Thousands of these free-flying butterflies, all of which are native species to Cambodia, come out to greet you. Take a tour through the garden and experience all of the beautiful animals that surround you. Great for kids as well!
It is a two-hour drive from Phnom Penh to The Boutique Resort Farmhouse Smiling Gecko. So Perfect distance for a weekend away with the kids.
The bungalows combine the charm of traditional Cambodian architecture and contemporary decoration with modern sanitary facilities. All double rooms are fully air-conditioned and do have their own little terrace as well as a patio under the bungalow. Perfect spot for the kids to play and in the evening when the kids are a sleep you can have a glass of wine and relax.
In the back of the resort you can also find the deepest pool of Cambodia, 3 meters deep! and do yoga.
The restaurant serves great food and the kids have their own menu. Next to the restaurant are several bikes parked and you can take them for a ride around the area. The kids can go on the back or take one of the kid bikes, great way to spend the morning exploring.
If you are a light sleeper it may be wise to bring earplugs. The life of the animals at the farm starts early. But hey you are not often on the farmhouse!
