Toul Sleng Genocide Museum is only trailor and this place was one of the many fields where the climax used to written for helpless prisoners of Khmer Regime, rightly called "Killing Fields" S21 was one of the major killing fields identified till now where more than 10,000 skulls and body have been found till date. A monument has been constructed where in full building only various body parts has been accumulated If your a faint heart then this place is not for you but this is very important place to know the level of Human Evil and not to remind to everyone that the evil inside every one of us should stay within. We need to respect other and care for other humans. It also shows the forgiving, patient and resilient nature of Cambodians who have suffered so much but still our happy and have let the past go

A day visit to the Memorial of the millions of lives lost for a dark ideology( & to think he was supported by the USA @ the UN) reminds one of the possible duality of mankind. 5that we have it with-in us to be Heroic or Evil. We took the journey there from the Hotel with a Tuk-tuk, and it was a fascinating ride there and back, as we were taken through some of the local, not so affluent suburbs and observed everyday life for most of the locals, not to mention the navigation through the traffic.

We visited both the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (S-21 Prison) and the Choeng Ek Killing Fields. Although they are not close together, to understand this sad part of Cambodian history, both sites should be visited. It should be seen with a tour guide, or by using the available audio guides in order to get a good overview of this tragic time period. This visit was a very somber experience, but it is important for those unfamiliar with Cambodian history to understand what happened here in the late 1970's.

Visited the Killing Fields after visiting S21 Detention Center. The visiit was moving especially seeing where the bodies were buried and viewing the skulls taken from the graves. It reminded one how dictators operate.

I attended the killing fields and S21 tour and the our guide was Neang. He was very informative and had lots of knowledge which he was keen to pass onto everyone. The tour took around 4 hrs. It’s well worth having a guide as you are then able to ask questions. Very sad to hear about what happened in Cambodia and not so long ago
