The Choeung Ek Genocidal Center (also known as the killing fields) was a highlight of our time in Phnom Penh. You do an audio tour and listen to all of the horrible things that happened during the Genocide. I found it to be really educational...More

Excellent audio. It was a very depressing place to visit after going to the school the day before, but really a must see once.

After doing the S21 tour in the morning we went to the killing fields in the afternoon. We were given 2 and a half hours by our guide when really an hour would have been sufficient. There is not a lot to see apart from...More

A bit of a drive from the city, but this is a must-visit in Phnom Penh. It was gut-wrenching to see first hand all of the terrible things that happened here during the Khmer Rouge rule. The tickets come with a free audio guide in...More

The tranquillity inside is a stark contrast to the awful history. The skulls and mass graves gave me shivers down my spine. Our guide was great at explaining how this mass genocide came about. A must see in Phnom Penh

Quite a way out of town, this monument was sadly underwhelming as it was sometimes difficult to differentiate some of the outdoor areas and, given the gravity of the crimes against humanity, for me it didn't provide the depth of information I had hoped for....More

A visit in Phnom Penh is not complete without a visit to The Killing fields of Choeung Ek. It's located about 30 minutes outside of the city centre, but well worth the travel. Audio guides are available and very informative. It's both shocking and terrifying...More

The Killing Fields is a difficult place to visit as it is a memorial to a terrible time in Cambodia's history when many people were killed in a most brutal fashion. It is however a very good memorial in that you are taken through various...More

Definitely worth a visit, it's important to understand the history of any country you visit! And this beautiful country has suffered incredibly!

Words cannot explain how emotional this place is. A must to do, even to understand the history and what the nation has been through.

It depends. If you're never going back to Cambodia I would suggest going. It's a totally different atmosphere from Tuol Slang. It is after all the killing fields - literally. If however Cambodian history is not of interest... More

For us it took about 45 mins to get there. Our hotel is near the National Museum in downtown. You can pretty much decide yourself how long the audio tour is. The tour has about 19 chapters and you can listen to them... More
