My wife and I visited here whilst staying in Phnomh Penh and travelled via Tuk Tuk from the centre of town which took about 30 minutes as it is situated 15km from the town centre. Entry was 6 dollars which also included the supply of head phones and audio commentary. Access around site is mainly on a wooden boardwalk with... More

Such a somber and humbling place. We did a guided tour - It really helped us understand the Cambodian history and appreciate what all these people went through. Brought tears to my eyes while listening to the stories. I read about the Khmer Rouge history but it was so different standing in the killing fields. Definitely worth the visit.

This can be a disturbing couple hours, but you must understand this part of Cambodia history. If you come away saying "never again if I can help it" then you get it. Otherwise, then you need to go again and name some people you love as you look at this human tragedy.

This all happened in the 1970's, not long ago. Follow the story of the tragedy of the Cambodian people and it is so moving. Not a pleasant day out but these terrible events should never be forgotten. Please be respectful on your visit.

Was eye opening to take a tuk tuk out here and learn about all of this. For the price you pay though we were a little disappointed that it was just a few boards to read and all sort s of buildings were gone. So you couldn't get a true sense for it all. But we are still happy we... More

We saw the Genocide Museum (S-21) first before going here. This is a tough place to visit to imagine what went on from 1975-79..that the world did seemingly nothing to stop. You listen to a headset as you walk through the grounds. Not for the faint of heart but an important educational experience.

I spent about 1.5 hours here. It was quite confronting - bones are proudly on display. I was quite shocked by this.... thinking that it is not respectful to the dead. After listening to the audio tape while here, listening to the stories, listening to the signs that say: take photos - share the story. I started to feel part... More

In line with our review of the Tuol Sleng prison. This is a must see when you're in PP. It gives an impression of the recent Cambodian history. It is hard to believe it actually took place less than 40 years ago. The accompanying audio tour is sufficient when you want to hear more about this place.

The killing fields were confronting and extremely upsetting, but still very important to understanding Cambodia's history and the foundations of the country today. I would encourage anyone to put this at the top of their list and also to get the audio guide which was incredibly moving, well thought out and really helpful in situating you within the times and...
