It is very interesting but very sad as well. This is part of the recent history of Cambodia and our times which was not widely talked about in the West.

A must see for all visitors to Cambodia. At times confronting, but we need to acknowledge what these beautiful people went through. Make sure you give yourself a couple of hours to spend here, you need to have the time to just sit and reflect....More

Very moving and powerful. The audio guide is a great way to get detailed accounts of what happened and try see it first hand. Haunting that you were still able to see teeth and bone fragments dotted around the path and grounds.

Everyone should deserve a chance to see how innocent Cambodians were killed, including many pregnant ladies and children (even at a very young age). Bitter memory of every Cambodian!

Well worth a visit. The audio guide was great with commentary from a former prisoner. You need at least an hour to take it all if you can stand the heat! Get your tuk-tuk driver to wait a few more minutes

Is it really worth the visit after visiting the genocide museum (prision S-21) ? We have been today and feel maybe it will be repetitive and too much to take in... thanks!!!

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
I heard somewhere that westerner visiting The Killling Fields was disrespectful in the eyes of locals. Can anyone confirm or deny this please. I would love to visit but only if it is welcomed.
