Do not miss.

Important. Everyone should visit here along with a visit to S-21. Atrocities like these must never be forgotten.

The Killing Fields gives you an insight into what happened in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge leader dictatorship, during which millions of people were decimated in Cambodia. Entrance is cheap (6$ for one person, including an audio guide available in many languages - the French one was recorded by a Cambodian French speaker, which made the experience very immersive).

To learn the details of the Pol Pot regime a visit is a must. Horrify and confronting but a `must do'

My wife decided not to visit, but it is a must to see what the country went through under the horrible dictator Pol Pott only 40 years ago. I went with an organised tour which is a must, but the site does have tour guides and audio tour so you can completely understand the site. Our guide had lost his... More

This place reminds you of human cruelty and pains in the history. A visit to the killing fields will help you feel the pain caused by Khmer Rouge in those times and you will better understand how cruel it was.

We used the PassApp Taxi App to get there for only 4,5 dollar. The Killing fields itself where an absolute must see. It made me really sad, hoever, i Thank everyone should hear this story. Its an important part of history.

Harrowing but worth it. You must pay the $10 for the audio self tour. Great to see the mix of nationalities & lots of younger people. Warning it may upset you.

This is something to experience, harrowing would be an underestimation with regard to what actually happened. It also show's what social media differences have occurred in the 40 odd years since.

good straightforward museum that deals with a tough element of Cambodian history. Highly recommended to go to Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in PP first before going to Killing Fields/Choeng Ek

The killing fields were so so so sad. We could feel the deeply sad, horrifying, terrifying spirit of the place everywhere we stepped. We almost didn't want to walk over the grounds because there were still human remains surfacing from under the dirt 40 years later. It was a truly awful experience, and visiting it gives you a deep appreciation... More
