We hadn't intended to visit the Killing Fields as it was an optional part of our trip but our guide was so keen to show us we agreed to go. I'm glad we did but it was a very upsetting visit, made worse somehow because it was so recent and all the Cambodians we met had a terrible story to... More

This was an optional tour following our visit to Tuil Sleng Genocide Museum and we felt we needed to visit this site. We were taken around the site of the mass graves and saw the bones and pieces of clothing still being found. The memorial Stupa is where the remains of Choeung Ek's victims are preserved. It an be very... More

To fully understand how 20th Century Communist ideology operated under a tyrant like Pol Pot you have to see the killing fields and this museum. It is a must see especially for students who have radical beliefs. Equally as hideous as the Holocaust these poor innocent men women and children were savagely murdered. Go, look, weep.

Harrowing and somber.Only one of over 300 killing field sight in Cambodia, but conveys the true horror of the Pol Pot regime

We visited early one morning and spent an hour using the audio guide which includes voices from those who were involved at the time. It's obviously a harrowing place and you can't helped be touched by the incredibly awful story. For anyone who has read books or seen films like Killing Fields this is an essential stop even though it's... More

Be prepared for the horrors of the Khmer Rouge when you are here. Very sobering place but shouldn't be missed. Leave your children at home.

It's a self guided tour with an audiobook. You go to various stations and the narrator (a survivor of the Khmer Rouge regime) tells you the horrors and atrocities committed by the government forces. It's very awful and sad to hear what took place but it's a place people should visit if you're visiting Cambodia. There are still places you... More

Very moving place to visit and an essential introduction to Cambodias recent history. You get guided round by an audio guide so there is no need to pay for a tour. Tuktuk should be no more than 15 USD return.

A must visit in Phnom Penh. A devastating part of their history which they are rightfully eager to educate the world about. 6 dollar entry with audio tour.
