I visited Tuol Sleng in the morning, medium crowded. Have a walk around the old school rooms, still with large black boards. Nice flooring, ventilation, all designed ahead of the time. Khmer Rouge converted to prision as education was not a way to improve living standards or progress. All windows & corridors were barb wired, you can see the marks on the wall reminds you how inmates were tortured. I could only see an insane leader getting the power to torture poor kampucheans. I saw them now, really friendly & down to earth people you love. I was lucky to meet Bou Meng who excaped sketching Pol pot. His wife & children were not spared sadly. Buy a copy of his story to support the organisation to help survivors. It is best to hire a bike for a day (5-15$) to move around, take your own pace. If you are not confident, no way as roads are filled with 2 wheeler like locust attacks. You can never put your feet sown on crawling speed, will be hit. It is also a good idea to drive to the killing fields on a your bike as it is far from city. I really enjoyed the full day ride though.
