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

Since there is not so many attractions beside the wats so our tour guide brought us here If interested to history maybe u like here but is not something interesting and so different than other normal temples, just good for killing time.

There are no words to discribe the horror that took place in these fields. Audiotour is a must to come to a full understanding. It took us 90 minutes to visit and listen to the stories om the audiotour.

Nothing like the testament in Phnom Penh but worth a quick visit. Very informative but not much to see. A few billboards with pictures and history written in English and skulls

The compound is not large and can be easily seen in an hour. Too many people outside Cambodia are unaware what transpired during Pol Pat’s regime. These poor souls deserve you taking a few minutes out of your trip to pay respects.

This was probably the disappointment of my trip. This is just a little roadside memorial with some signs. I spent about 15 minutes here top. Has some good information but could be turned into a good little museum with more things. Don't plan to spend...More
