This is something you simply must do. A difficult place to be, Unfathomable that a nation could turn on their own and with such fear and violence.

It feels strange to give such place an excellent rating, however I felt this place was so horrifying in such a peaceful setting. My Mother and I chose the audio tour and spent a good couple of hours walking around at our own pace, there...More

A very poignant visit, humbling and well done. A place to reflect and respect the people of Cambodia. Well worth a visit to put your life in perspective.

Yes, you might have read about it. But nothing really prepares you for this experience. There is something for everyone to take away from this place; something for each visitor to reflect on. The intention behind this place, the way it is organised and run...More

See this after you have visited the detention centre. Prisoners were brought here from there, to be killed. Make use of the English headsets. Excellent commentary; you will learn a lot. Very somber place but another “must visit” while here.

A harrowing experience to learn more about the Khmer Rouge brutality. Give yourself enough time to listen to the entire audio tour which is well done (although S21 has more detail). A must-visit

Not really a whole lot to see here except for empty pits and a tower containing several hundred sets of bones and skulls.

Coming directly from S21 and having listened to the audio tour there, some of the material is similar. Yet somehow the two places have their own story that give a chilling reminder of what the Cambodian people suffered so recently while the rest of the...More

A must visit in your trip to Cambodia to know how people suffered here and how the resilience of the people has brought them to where they are now!

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
