The place is not too big, but still enough space to walk around. Great audio tour (free). Got a great impression bout all the horrible things that happened there. The memorial stupa was pretty, definitely tells the story well.

This is the place where over 20,000 people were executed by The Pol Pot Regime. The Choeung Ek is a sad place to visit and the horror that has taken place is unbelievable. There is a small memorial but you spend most time to walk between the mass graves. There is also a little exhibition. It's a horrific place to... More

It is a powerful place, stories are horrific and well told. However if you go to S21 and here then there will be crossover of information and experience. Both places are worth a visit but maybe not on the same trip.

Although the grounds of this visit is chilling and reflects a very dark time in Cambodia (and the world's) history I still really recommend going. The audio tour is a must.

Hard to write a review for a place like this....it's more about getting an idea of what happened out here. Went to s21 before coming here. Definitely a sobering experience but well worth it. It's crazy to think that the older generation just waking around Cambodia will all have some relation to the events that occurred between 1975-79.

It's an unassuming field a fair way from Phnom Penh but I would encourage anyone to visit here. I was deeply moved by the experience and the only thing we can do for the victims is remember and honour their memory. It is a hard place to visit, especially to see the tree the killed children against but I am... More

Learning through history what a man can do to another man. They have a recorder that will explained each stop that you made. Very peaceful place and hope the souls here rest in peace too...

My visit to this place broke me but I am so glad I went. Listening to the audio tape as you wander round this eerily quiet place really brings home the horrors, harder to accept because they were relatively recent. It just makes me admire the Cambodian people even more, resilient, happy, generous people who have so little and are... More

This place is a solemn reminder of how cruel humanity can be. The audio tour is essential to understanding what happened here. The tour lays out the details of the horrors of being brought here and let's you see firsthand how the ground continues to unveil the scope of the killing here.

This is one of the best place to learn about the genocide in Choeung Ek, not for kids as lots of quite time and a lot to take in.
