Although this is a very difficult place to visit, the audio tour is brilliant. Very highly recommended.
The killing fields and the S-21 museum give you a glimpse into the Cambodian past and makes you realize how the people who have suffered a lot can be so polite. The newly audio guide adds a whole new meaning to the killing fields, letting you know the history behind each part of the place. Take your time and this... More
Not a pleasant place to visit but helped us to understand a fraction of the suffering that has occurred here in recent history. Certainly left a lasting impression and gave us lots to think about. We did not bring our 7 and 10 year old here and I think that was the right decision for us. It was overwhelming for... More

The audio set and headphones you wear around the site give detailed accounts of what went on at this terrible place and it can be quite upsetting listening to it.

This is set up so well with each visitor getting a head set in their preferred language. You walk around to the different stops (where the building used to be), and type in the corresponding number to your handset to listen to the story. A definite must do whilst in Phnom Penh to help understand what Cambodia went though. A... More
We took a tuktuk from the city to here for 10 dollars (return) and spend about 1,5 hours in Choeung Ek Genocidal Center. It is a very peaceful place now, but the audio tour (included in the entrance fee of 6 dollar) gives you a good idea on how it used to be in those dark years. This is definitely... More
