Discover the history and horror of Phnom Penh’s past on this half-day, small-group tour. Follow the path of one of the most tragic times of the 20th century – the rise and fall of the Khmer Rouge – and see how the country has been rebuilt.
  • Guided tour: gain an insight into Cambodia’s turbulent history
  • Sample typical Khmer street foods
  • Entrance fees included
  • Personalized experience with a small group of up to 12 people 
What to Expect
The day starts by learning about the tragic and fascinating recent history of Cambodia. See the location where journalists camped out in 1975 on the eve of the Khmer Rouge takeover, and the ghostly building that has been left burnt-out and bullet-holed as it stood after the war. Confront Cambodia's tragic past, on a guided tour of the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, a former school which served as a Khmer Rouge torture centre. Then head out of the city to the Choueng Ek Memorial, where a pagoda made up of some 8,000 human skulls marks the site of one of the infamous Killing Fields. Finish by sampling some interesting Khmer snacks and exploring how this recent history and politics continue to affect the lives of average Cambodian.

Was trying to find an appropriate title for the review but I couldn't find the words as it is very difficult to describe and appreciate a wonderful tour guided service around one of the worst event in our recent human history. However, I am more than happy to share how glad I

Given the tragic & horrible story of this time in Cambodia's history it seems strange to be using the words that this was an enjoyable & interesting tour. Our guide Neang was excellent and explained the history with humility, honesty & respect for the victims, including how it

Our guide Neang was extremely knowledgeable and took time to share information in an accessible and personable manner. Whilst the experience is very harrowing it was well worth the visit to understand more about the recent history of Cambodia and the effect on its people. Thanks
