Welcome to the Mad Monkey Hostels Tours.

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.

This tour was recommended by our friend that lives locally as it is very educational and is a part of Cambodian history that happened relatively recently. We started our tour at the Killing Fields which was an outdoor tour that cost 6 USD each. It provided an audio explanation for each station visited. The tour takes you step by step... More

Something you should do if you ever come to Phnom Penh but there are images where it can be a bit brtual. The s21 was an eye opener and given that the Khmer Rouge happened in the mid 70s, it wasn't that long ago. It was such a shock to see how many people were effected in such a short... More

it's very hard to come to term with what I witnessed today, Ive never been so close to such a traumatic place which was a epicenter for a immense amount of human suffering. The Choeung Ek killing field and s21 where just 2 of the hundreds of location in Cambodia where a genocide by the former Khmer Rouge government killed... More

This is a "must do" in Cambodia. Whilst confronting and sad, you are able to learn about the important history of the Cambodian people and what they went through.

Eye opening and informative. The fields are very detailed including actual bones, clothes and of course the skull display(which tbh i dont think people should take pics of). The prison gives you an erie feeling but defo must see.

This tour highlights the history of Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge and their leader Pol Pot. The S-21 prison is a former school which the Khmer Rouge turned into a prison to interrogate and torture suspected traitors or enemies. The Killing Fields are exactly what it says on the tin. They have been extremely well preserved and the audio guide... More

This is a real shock and an emotional experience. It's very well organised and the audible headphones means you can go at your own pace.

If you visit Cambodia you should visit these site as they are such a large part of the country's recent history . It is a sad. Haunting place. But a really important lesson in history ! This is a must see sight in Phnom Penh .

If you are ready to see a 30 foot tower full of skulls or to contemplate a tree where children were swung against it to kill them whilst music was broadcast to drown their screams you may be able to cope with it. This will be very distressing for all but for some of us less stalwart it may be... More
