If you let a 10-year-old plan your family holiday, surely it would be all water slide parks and lolly shops, right?

Not so, says child travel blogger Arjan Jayawardena, who has been creating travel videos since he was eight for Australian-made app Bound Round.

He told The Huffington Post Australia his favourite destination to document was the Daintree rainforest.

"I liked it because there's lots and lots to do," Jayawardena told HuffPost Australia.

"I'd just studied it at school as well, so going there really solidified what I'd learned."

Jayawardena is one of the many young kids using the app -- which aims to give travel advice for children, by children with about 400 videos uploaded to date.

All posts form photos, reviews, ratings and stories about any destination, are screened to make sure it's child friendly and there are no comments.

And where would Jayawardena like to travel to next based on Bound Round users' recommendations?

"I saw a thing on Disneyland and it looks very interesting because I've never been before," he said.

"Then, Singapore would be good to see Singapore Zoo and Dubai looks interesting."
