Welcome to the Mad Monkey Hostels Tours. During the day visit the Mad Monkey and jump on one of our Tuk Tuk tours out to the killing fields and S21, pay a fair price for your tour to the Tuk Tuk driver for a half day tour of both facilities. 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.

The event starts at the Mad Monkey rooftop bar in Phnom Penh every Thursday night, then hits Top Banana and Love Bar. It is great night out and a great way to donate to kids education in Cambodia.

Tuk Tuk tour of the killing fields $12 - $15 (Depending on number of people)

Eat at The Mad Monkey restaurant wide menu with prices starting between $4 and $10 per plate.

Cocktails at our rooftop bar! Join the party and buy a wrist band from $5 per person.

We took a Self-guided tour booked with Viator. It was cheap ($20USD ea), well organised and it a small mini bus instead of the larger tour buses with the guide meeting us at our hotel. They provided us with a video to watch on the way to the fields which was informative. The tour itself - harrowing, sad, shocking. The... More

I knew about the Khmer Rouge terror regime in the 70 but visiting those sinister places is almost unbearable. The S 21 prison, a former college, is a terrible place and it's history is extremely well illustrated with the audio guide. The killing fields are outside the town and they seem to be a peaceful rest for the victims of... More

We visited the killing fields. I found this very confronting and a solom experience. Our guide had experienced loss of family member due to the events of this time. He was very informative with backgound educational information and his sad personal experience due to the destruction caused in the city. The photographs taken tell the true story of suffering the...

Our second visit here this time to reflect on how evil men can cause such horendous murderous issues on innocent people. It is a reminder to us all that these things are still happening in the world and we should never excuse or forget.

Happy Tours was this trip, Small minibus DID NOT pick us up at our hotel due to traffic but DID drop us off. About 10 people and the guide was good. We watched an excellent documentary on the way there and back. First we visited the S21 Prison and spent 1.25 hrs there.(1.5 would have suited some better but not... More

Very sobering experience walking through S21 and hearing all the ghosts screaming in anguish during this wretched purge.

Today Rob and I visited the S-21 Prison Museum and Killing Fields. We had an excellent guide from Halong Tours Booking, Ms Sum Saopheak. It was a very sobering visit and really helped us realise the full extent of this atrocity. We understand, more than ever, how lucky we are to live in Australia. Ms Sum guided us extremely well...

We took the morning Hop On Hop Off bus tour which picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel. There is a documentary shown to give background on the Khmer Rouge era.

Such a shocking reminder of the atrocities that man can inflict on each other, but for someone to do these vile acts to their own race is incomprehensible. A very sombre place,but a must see to help to understand what the people of this amazing country have been through.
