The actual site is not a huge place but guided audio tour really puts it all into perspective of what went on there. This is a big part of history that not a lot of people know about or care to because it is so far away from their world. Very sad and brutal reminder of what can happen in life.

Such a moving place, I was glad I was able to go and pay my respects. We visited both Tuol Sleng and The Killing Fields. Now a quiet somber place, I would strongly recommend a visit.

It was heartbreaking to see the Killing Tree, as it was to still be able to see bone coming up out of the ground.

Having lived in Siem Riep for 7 months and done many trips to Phnom Penh, I am embarrassed to say that I finally visited this site. It took about 40 minutes on the back of a moto, to get there from the Olympic Stadium area where I stay. The site is not very large but the monument is quite impressive.

If you take the audio tour, which is free with admission, be sure and listen to all the supplementary sections, they are add to the tour immensely.

It is worth paying for transport here. The audioguide was fantastic. Informative, interesting and extremely moving. I strongly encourage you to listen to all the optional portions. The place is peaceful, with plenty of shade from the hot sun.
Will not forget this place

An absolute must see. Audio headset adds a story to the sights and explains how this place operated. A very sad and heart wrenching time in Cambodian history. Completely moving.
