This was one of our favorite stops in our southern Cambodia travel. Our tuk-tuk was met by MANY local children "guides". Although that was a little overwhelming at first and we weren't quite sure what the protocol was, we ended up with about 6 of them joining us on our hike through the caves. We had such fun talking and playing with them. Our kids, aged 8 & 11 loved it. We found out many interesting things about the area and the mountain by having them along, things we would not have discovered without them. And we just enjoyed their company complete with giggles. We did end up giving them about $1 each at the end of our visit, not sure if this was expected or not. Stop at the cafe at the end of the trail for a cold drink and some scary-but-true stories about living in the area during the Khmer Rouge.
