This was one of the most heart wrenching places we visited in Cambodia. To hear the history behind the Khmer Rouge dictator Pol Pot and to see the sights we saw walking through those fields broke our hearts. The trees with the thousands of woven...More
We arranged a stop-over in Phnom Penh especially to visit the Killing Fields. What happened there happened during our lifetime (unlike the horrors of Dachau and Bergen-Belsen). We wanted to be reminded what humans worldwide were, and unfortunately, are still capable of.
We would recommend...More

I can tell you that you would have enough time to see the Killing Fields in just one day. You will want to go to the former school )S21) where they kept the people while a decision was being made about what to do with them (e.g., kill them), and you will see photographs of many of the detainees, both alive and dead. Additionally, you will want to visit the largest Killing Field, and walk around that general area, see the movie made about the experiences that took place, and spend some time with one or two of the survivors who may be there (selling a book of their experiences). There is no need to visit more than one of the burial fields as you will certainly have seen enough of the painful situation in visiting the largest one that is just outside of Phnom Penh. There are many tours available that will take you to these two locations and what I have identified here you can do easily in one day.
There are also many hotels in Phnom Penh that have strong reviews, some of which will provide airport transport.
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.
