I recommend visiting S21 genocide prison first to get a true understanding of what went on before people were transported to the killing fields. This is incomprehensible and I... read more

At the end location is not so interestanting, you can see just a land and few building. The best interesting thing is the history by audio guide.

I recommend visiting S21 genocide prison first to get a true understanding of what went on before people were transported to the killing fields. This is incomprehensible and I still find it so hard to digest how anyone could have been so evil!! However I think people need to visit to get an understanding of what Cambodia went through. The...

The killing fields are a horrible yet incredibly important place to visit while in Cambodia. When you get there they have audio tours available which are really helpful

The recovery and preservation work done here is a credit to all involved. It is unthinkable what has happened in the past. I should have done more research about Cambodia our visit but this centre has helped my understanding of what happened but like most, I suppose, not why it happened. The movie was very informative.

Don't leave Pnomh Penh without going here, preferably after seeing S21 as that was where a vast number of those murdered here spent their final excruciating weeks/months before being transported here and finally executed. The audio guide is excellent and I would say a necessity. While there is information available at the various marked locations, the guide is more fulsome... More

We visited here at the end of our trip. It was emotional and brought home that Cambodia went through a very traumatic time.

Family of 2 parents and 4 children (15 to 9). You need transport to get here. Either use the bus advertised through the hotels, taxi or tuk tuk. We used a tuk tuk. It is a bumpy ride to get there. We paid $25 for the round trip of here, S21 and the Russian Market. We could have maybe got... More

Take sunblock and water. Do the audio tour, take your time. This place needs little else said but it is an eye opener about the history of this country that must be done.

The headphone tour of the killing fields is enough to show you what happened at this site, some dismantled and some excavated. Chilling tales and music provided for self guided tour of this resting place for so many. Worth the drive out of town to respect countries history.
