You know what you are signing up for, and you’re prepared for its reality. You visit the country’s largest killing field, mounds where thousands were executed, some skulls, clothing, and an excellent 15-minute movie. It is sacred space, it is painful space, it’s ordinary space...More

Absolutely chilling and spine tingling must do experience in Phnom Penh. Our guide, Reya, was extremely informative and delivered an extremely difficult and confronting topic in an expert and considerate manner.

No bag storage at killing fields. Use the airport facility for that or your hotel. Transport is cheap. Use a taxi service and keep it with you. If you are going through a tour company, they may be able to help you.

This is a sad story but with historical significance. We would suggest you still have a look of this place still because it is part of Cambodia's history.
