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

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.

This place is so sad, but really interesting. You cannot believe the stuff that went on here, and how recent the atrocities were actually carried out! Well worth getting a tour from a local fluent in your language, as they revery knowledgeable and explain things a lot better than the tourist information.

Take the audio because there is nothing much you can see and you will not understand if you do not have any audio with you.

Fascinating and sad place. We learned a lot. Lots of loud Chinese people showing no respect was the only real downer.

There is nothing more that can be said that everyone already hasn't written about this place. My recommendation is to visit Tuol Sleng in the city before coming here to give it some more perspective. I was moved by the tranquility.

Thank always_Itchy_feet27
