The “killing fields,” is still considered an active gravesite. At the entrance is a tall glass stupa temple built in the traditional pagoda style. The remains of 8985 men, women, and children exhumed in 1980 are visible behind clear glass panels. But the most heart...More

Take a local tour around the killing fields and prison, you will not regret it. It is a harrowing experience but 100% worth it to fully understand the devastation of the country. The most humbling part was meeting 2 of the survivors of the prison...More

I think if you're visiting Cambodia it is absolutely necessary to visit these two places and learn about the shocking events that took place only 40 years ago. Both S21 and the killing fields offer audio players which are available in a few different languages....More

This place is easy to visit. You get a headphone in whatever language you speak then it takes you through a tour with history and chronological timeline of events that took place there in 1970s

It doesn't have the sophistication of the 9/11 memorial but its impact is greater and longer lasting. Still blue denim and bones poking through ground after the rains

Is there bag storage available at the Killing fields? If so how much? If not what do you suggest we do with our bags. Arrive in PP around 1230pm, and fly out 730pm the same night. Only have a few hrs in PP!!

No bag storage at killing fields. Use the airport facility for that or your hotel. Transport is cheap. Use a taxi service and keep it with you. If you are going through a tour company, they may be able to help you.
Wow it sounds intense. I'm visiting Phnom Penh the end of this month and considering if I should I go to that location or not. You have me second guessing myself now.

This is a sad story but with historical significance. We would suggest you still have a look of this place still because it is part of Cambodia's history.

Hi I was wondering if it is better to experience The Killing Fields and S21 independently or join a tour? I have done tours in the past and always feel things were very rushed. I would like time to see and experience this without feeling that everything is going to fast. Thank You Lynette
