We were quiet from the start to the end. I tried to listen before him. We didn't skip anything at the killing fields. Part about the sugarpalm was too scary for him. Sad story, big impact

Another must visit in Phnom Penh. It's a little drive out but you can easily get a tuk tuk or mini van tour. Emotional and great to understand the reason Cambodia is the way it is. Don't miss it!

Excellent audio. It was a very depressing place to visit after going to the school the day before, but really a must see once.

After doing the S21 tour in the morning we went to the killing fields in the afternoon. We were given 2 and a half hours by our guide when really an hour would have been sufficient. There is not a lot to see apart from...More

A bit of a drive from the city, but this is a must-visit in Phnom Penh. It was gut-wrenching to see first hand all of the terrible things that happened here during the Khmer Rouge rule. The tickets come with a free audio guide in...More

The tranquillity inside is a stark contrast to the awful history. The skulls and mass graves gave me shivers down my spine. Our guide was great at explaining how this mass genocide came about. A must see in Phnom Penh

Quite a way out of town, this monument was sadly underwhelming as it was sometimes difficult to differentiate some of the outdoor areas and, given the gravity of the crimes against humanity, for me it didn't provide the depth of information I had hoped for....More

It depends. If you're never going back to Cambodia I would suggest going. It's a totally different atmosphere from Tuol Slang. It is after all the killing fields - literally. If however Cambodian history is not of interest... More

For us it took about 45 mins to get there. Our hotel is near the National Museum in downtown. You can pretty much decide yourself how long the audio tour is. The tour has about 19 chapters and you can listen to them... More
