This is never going to be an uplifting visit. The visit is done through a headphone set in each language where you walk around the genocide site and hear the stories from someone who was there. It's incredibly moving and the horror of what happened...More

Definitely a must-see but maybe not for the faint-hearted. This place is an emotional and mental overload for me. After Tuol Sleng, I thought I could handle this. Past the beautiful monument and after starting the audio guide, I simply shut down. I cannot process...More

You're offered an audio set for some extra cost - take it! Amazing stories, information and a classical piece of music will set the perfect mood for a tour in the killing fields. You'll feel the silent tension inside because everyone will learn to understand...More

It is an emotional place. Walking through you see the mass graves, clothes and bones still coming up from the ground in path ways, gasses, lockets, and bracelets. The most emotional is the tree where they would hit the kids head until they died and...More

Gives a little insight into how bad Cambodia had it, such a sad place. Only need about an hour, any longer is probably too depressing.

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
