The audio guide is really well done, I strongly recommend it if you visit the S-21. Maybe a little too pricey, 8$ is maybe on the edge of what I would have accepted to spend. What I really didn't like is that Cambodians are able...More

Just like the "killing field" it was an absolutely heartbreaking experience. I just cannot fathom how such atrocities could happen. Make sure you take a listen to the audio and also talk to the survivors if you can.

A must visit to understand the atrocities committed by man on man. A reminder for all to not look the other way when countries carry on such atrocities.

Hi there. Download “pass App” it will call you quick and very cheap tuk-tuk. The audio guide at killing fields is included in the $5 entry and no guide is needed. The S21 prison is quite upsetting enough without either a... More

Hi, I think you can get a guide but the audio guide is very good and offers flexibility when to listen and to what part.
