Our group visited the killing fields followed by S21. These visits are places worth seeing but I wouldn’t do it again as the atrocities that went on there were so horrible. At the killing fields clothing and bones are still surfacing after the rains. We...More

The environment is done very respectfully and the audio tours are fantastic to obtain the information. It is very confronting but very necessary to understand from the people what happened and to give your respect to the people of Cambodia.

I grew up with the story of the Cambodian civil war on the TV news every day. But I never knew how deep the horrors of the Khmer Rouge rule prior to it. A real eye opener and well worth the day. Book a TukTuk...More

What can I say, this is an absolute must do, for every visitor to Cambodia. I still find it so hard to comprehend that this went on in my life time, as indeed will again, and is no doubt already going on elsewhere. I found...More

If you are visiting Cambodia these sites should not be overlooked. They are heart wrenching and emotional but it's important as it's the countries history. The audio guide is a must as you will learn and experience the dreadful atrocity that happened in 1979. Grab...More

I can tell you that you would have enough time to see the Killing Fields in just one day. You will want to go to the former school )S21) where they kept the people while a decision was being made about what to do with them... More

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.

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.
