Phnom Penh was our last stop over before heading home after an incredible holiday in Vietnam and Cambodia and because my husband loves anything to do with history, I booked the History Tour of the killing fields. This is an incredible tour starting at the prison and ending at the Killing Fields. This was a hard thing to do and to listen to, so sad and very gruesome.I felt sad and disturbed for days afterwards but I am so happy I did it, it was the best and the worst tour I have ever done, the best because it is well run and eye opening and the worst is because it is information that you do not like to hear or see. The places are not well taken care of and it felt as if the funds from tourists are not being used for the upkeep of the places. The museum is clean and the information is well documented. The highlight of the museum was that we could meet two of the survivors of this horrific event. Please support them by buying there books about there time in prison from them. The KIlling fields are about an hour away on the outskirts of the city and the drive there is also disturbing as one sees how the majority of Cambodians live. The Killing fields are very well organized and neat and because this happened not so long ago, very well documented but so so gruesome. This will make any descent man cry. This is a tour that is a must and I highly recommend it but try do this at the end of your holiday because it is very heavy and stays with you for days and days. I do not recommend this for children.
