This is a must visit site to understand the attrocoties of the genocide of the Khmer Rouge rule. The site outside the city seems quiet and unassuming, but as you follow the audio tour round you get insite into how prisoners from S21 ended up...More

To fully appreciate what happened here, a trip to S-21 (aka Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum) is highly recommended before going here. It’s in the outskirts on Phnom Penh so most tours combine the two. The site contains the excavated killing fields and the remains of...More

After visiting s21 this morning we headed out to the killing fields. It's about a 40 minute tuk tuk ride and it's hot at this time of year. Dress appropriate, remember to be respectful of culture and the poor departed souls. Used the audio tour...More

Despite reading about the Khmer regime before going, I was not prepared by the artefacts. The audio was fantastic and Included accounts from former prisoners. The evidence of the horrors of regime was too much for me and I cried several times during the visit....More

I decided that I didn’t want to attempt the two memorials to the Khmer Rouge atrocities in one visit so went to Tuol Sleng prison yesterday and Choeung Ek this morning. It was the right decision for me as the prison left me emotionally drained,...More

This place reminds us how was history in this country. Very nice place. Audio system was great. It take me 2 hours to listen to all. Must visit to pay respect for innocent people.

Think it’s important to attend these kinds of places to pay our respects, understand that they’re real: hopefully to ensure it isn’t permitted to ever happen again. I didn’t take many photos, it felt inappropriate.

A place whereby you learn the history of Cambodia and how the people suffered during 1975 to 1979 under the Khmer Rouge era. Entrance fee is USD6 come with audio guide. Allowed photography.

Horrific experience, but a must place to visit. After the tour one has to sit and contemplate in order to get back to normality. Be prepared for emotional event. All this happened under the watchful eyes of "Western Democracies" and politics.

It depends. If you're never going back to Cambodia I would suggest going. It's a totally different atmosphere from Tuol Slang. It is after all the killing fields - literally. If however Cambodian history is not of interest... More
