Welcome to the Mad Monkey Hostels Tours. During the day visit the Mad Monkey and jump on one of our Tuk Tuk tours out to the killing fields and S21, pay a fair price for your tour to the Tuk Tuk driver for a half day tour of both facilities. Then join us for dinner and then at night time do something positive. Then in the evening do something positive by attending our crawl for School event. The Crawl for School is a weekly pub crawl designed for young tourists and backpackers. Wrist bands cost $5 and provide you half priced drinks all night, 100% of your $5 wristband is used to fund education projects for poor kids in Cambodia. The event starts at the Mad Monkey rooftop bar in Phnom Penh every Thursday night, then hits Top Banana and Love Bar. It is great night out and a great way to donate to kids education in Cambodia. Tuk Tuk tour of the killing fields $12 - $15 (Depending on number of people) Eat at The Mad Monkey restaurant wide menu with prices starting between $4 and $10 per plate. Cocktails at our rooftop bar! Join the party and buy a wrist band from $5 per person.

A thought provoking trip - but a must see

Definitely one to add to the list of things to see when in Cambodia. Would advise going as early as possible - we arrived at 10 and it was already almost an unbearable heat. As far as I'm aware, both open around 7-7.30am. We paid around $6 each for the killing fields and $3 each for s21, with a tuk... More

This experience is better than a horror train or ghost hunting or even playing the ouija board. I mean this place is really creepy and i am having a goose bumps as i walk in every corner of the building. I can see and feel how people there were terrorized/ tortured/ humiliated/ oppressed and whatever devious activities they do there... More

After experiencing the friendlieness of present Cambodians it is quite a shock to be confronted with vivid images and reports of their atrocities in the past.What is even more shocking is the reluctance of the West during this short period of time - 1975 to 1979 - to acknowledge that a genocide to the tune of over 2 million people...

We came into cambodia and spent three days in Phnom Penh. Our first day, we came to the killing fields - and we wouldn't do it any differently. Although depressing and horrifying, you learn a lot about their history and culture. Absolutely recommend the audio tour. Don't assume you're coming to a formal tour/museum. The simplicity of this place and... More

We visited the Killing Fields and S21 as part of our Intrepid Cambodia tour. It's quite graphic and very sad to see what humans are capable of toward each other. It's well organized and worth the trip. At S21 there are two surviving prisoners who are only to happy to meet you and have their photo taken. Take water with... More

This tour should be done by everyone to find out the shocking truth. We had a guide for the S21 tour and she had us in tears. She was a victim and told her story from the heart. Even though it is really sad people need to know. You must use a guide as you will not understand what really... More

The most somber day of my travels. A true eye opener to what happened in Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge reign of terror. The number one place to visit and pay your respects at this heartfelt tribute. Killing Fields: Don't bother finding a tour company.

We took tuk-tuks to get to these places...so dusty are the roads that you need a face scarf. Make sure you get a tour guide for the S21 prison. We were fortunate to have a prison survivor as a guide, making the experience quite moving. At the killing fields you definitely should rent the audio guides, as they contain personal... More
