This can be a quick 15 minute stop or it can last longer, depending on your mood and desire to reflect. It's currently a working monastery so you can also look into the buildings and learn how the monks live as well. There's some information...More

Entering this attraction past a beggar with no legs (no doubt another land mine victim) I didn't quite know what to expect but to see the display of people's remains was the last thing! A large glass fronted case with countless skulls, femurs, etc all...More

I'm glad that we visited but I also found it very upsetting. There are many terrible stories here but to understand Cambodia is to understand the regime of the Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot. I was upset to see people take it so lightly and...More

Its suppose to be a 'mini' killing field but its like mini of mini. No entrance fee. That was the only consolation for the fact that nothing to see except what's in the picture. There's a school and a small temple in the same compound.

My daughter and I visited this site on a tour with a friendly Tuk-tuk driver. We have both been to Auschwitz and yes this is small and simple in comparison. My advice is to go at the end of your stay in Cambodia. We were...More

I totally agree regarding some of the ignorance surrounding some of the reviews on here. I guess that's the happy snappy emotionally bereft culture that is so abundant nowadays. I truly recommend going just to pay respect to our fellow brothers and sisters, who were...More

There isnt much to see here, but it gives you small insight in the history of Cambodia. If you are in the area, it is worth of a quick stop.

Absolutely harrowing. The audio tour is very informative and moving. Needless to say, if you are in Cambodia then you must visit this.
