A sombre reminder of how staggeringly cruel humans can be to each other. The audio guide was very good and well worth getting. It guides you around the different buildings and provides adequate information. Some of the photos you see in the torture rooms are...More

A must see for all those who travel to Cambodia. We opted for the audio tour which is recommended and is only around $3 extra. It gives you a deep insight into the memorial and the atrocities that were committed.

If you want to get up close and personal with the horrors portrayed on the Cambodian people, this is the place to visit. Would recommend having a knowledgeable guide.

This place is horrible to see - but you absolutely need to go there to understand the history of Cambodia. It is gruesome - but you need to learn about what happened here!

Hi there. Download “pass App” it will call you quick and very cheap tuk-tuk. The audio guide at killing fields is included in the $5 entry and no guide is needed. The S21 prison is quite upsetting enough without either a... More

Hi, I think you can get a guide but the audio guide is very good and offers flexibility when to listen and to what part.
