“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Very informative, not to be missed! Quite a distance to travel and it costs $6 but it really is fantastic. Tuk tuk from BKK1 should be about $15.

“Moving!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Excellent audio tour (included in entrance fee) which gave a moving and emotional account of what the people of Cambodia went through during those dark days of Pol Pots rule!

Was worth the extremely bumpy and dusty tuk tuk ride to get to this place!

“Sad Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

It was a sad place. But full of history to learn from. Hard to see the horror of war. What we did as people to other people.

“A must see.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Just like the S21 prison, the killing fields are a very important part of Cambodian history. It's a grisly experience, but you must do yourself the favour of learning about the atrocities that were committed here. The Audio tour was terrific, informative and made the tour somewhat peaceful and tranquil. Don't leave Phnom Penh without visiting here.
