Sad yet beautiful

This feels like an important place to visit. It is sad, peaceful and somehow beautiful and the audio tour is excellent. A must see.

Coming here was my main purpose for visiting Phnom Penh. It was moving and so worth the trip. However, the structures have long been torn down and the site relies on signs and (an excellent) audio tour. However, you still get some feel for the horrors that occurred here. They've got to find a better way to preserve what is... More

A great trip facilitated by excellent tour on personal headphones that you could skip through or explore in more detail to suit. Very peaceful and contemplative environment. Accounts/ testimony of brutality were easily accessible for adults whilst we were able to limit what our youngest child (aged 12) heard and saw. I will never forget the killing tree and the... More

Great memorial to the people and very informative. Crazy to think it was only 35 years ago. Very respectful and thought provoking. Well maintained. $6 entry fee including audio tour. Have visited previously in 2009 and interesting and good to see it has been updated with latest information still developing. Definitely worth a visit.

Like Tuol Sleng, Choeung Ek (aka The Killing Fields) is a sad and poignant reminder of how recently Cambodia suffered so much

A well put together account of a truly horrific time in our recent historic. The audio tour gave a very clear summary of the atrocities carried out by the Pol Pot regime and being able to walk through the killing fields added to the sombre mood. We did this after visiting the S21 museum and I think that helped to... More

The audio tour is a must if not with a tour group. The area can appear so innocent without understanding the horrors of what took place in this area. It's confronting, moving and terrifying that these atrocities took place.

After visiting the S-21 prison in Phnom Penh, we went out to the Killing Fields, where genocide victims were killed and buried. The mass grave sites are still evident with signs indicating what was found there. The two killing trees with the hundreds of ribbons left there was a reminder of the horrible things humans do to each other. The... More

A sad but necessary place to visit when in Cambodia. The audio tour is vital to understand the area.
