An emotional walk around an awful place in history. Pay a little extra for the headphones and recorder to listen to the explanation of what when on, it is a fantastic recount of what happened in this prison

Similar to the Killing Fields, very informative. Everyone is respectful and wants to learn more about the atrocity that swept across Cambodia in the 70s. Some survivors are available to meet and talk to.

A school that was used by the Khmer Rouge to torture many thousands of Cambodians for no real reason except to demonstrate power. Horrific back-stories about the mental corruption of those responsible and those suffering. Our guide's father and other family members died here when...More

Purchase the audio as it makes the visit much more worthwhile. Very informative, provided a good background for visiting the killing fields. If your pushed for time you could probably get away with skipping the museum and just doing the killing fields

Once a High School taken over by Pol Pot the conditions that prevailed are on display inside. Our delightful guide was emotional but also amazingly forgiving or choosing to forget the atrocities that occurred in Cambodia...

I did the hop on/hop off bus (not like in major cities) for $15 US which picks you up at your hotel and brings you back, goes to S21 and the Killing Fields. Highly recommend it.

No dress code but it's hot and also a very sombre place, treat it like a Buddhist temple for dress I'd say
