A must for every tourist coming to Cambodia. Situated a bit out-of-town but it's well worth a visit. Listen carefully to the audio tour and wonder what human being is capable of. Human bones still littered the place, so be careful where you wandered.

A very harrowing and sobering experience, but a must if you are staying in Phnom Penh. You walk around the site yourself at your own pace with an audio guide which is very informative. The skulls in the central memorial really bring home the awful fate of the poor people who were taken to the Killing Fields - and I... More

An extremely humbling and well thought out exhibition of the horrors that took place here but respectful of the victims memory. Important to not only remember what happened here in 70s but also the result of both far left and far right politics. A reasonable entrance fee that included an audio guide.

A must for anyone in Cambodia, let alone the surrounding area of the center. Very informative audio tour and the place has been kept beautifully. A respectful and moving preservation of the horrors that happened so recently in time.

My husband and I visited the Chung Ek Genodical center and yes, it is heart wrenching, but also worthwhile. There is a short video which I recommend to view at the beginning of your visit. There is also a small and effecting museum. When approaching the memorial, there is a person on the left hand side who is selling a... More

We visited the killing fields after we went to S21, its a place you can never imagine what really happened there. You hire a head set in your language and head around by yourself listening to what the different areas mean, and stories from survivors. Its a quiet sad place, but we must all take something from this. This sought... More

All tourists to Phnom Penh should visit Choeung Ek to pay homage to those who suffered under the Khmer Rouge. The Center has head sets - do take the time to walk the grounds and listen to the story and reflect. The dichotomy of the lovely, smiling Cambodians and what took place in the late 1970s is striking. Unlike others,... More

There was no mistaking the atmosphere here even now. The cruelty of man, very moving and emotinal place to visit, but it should be done.

It is a must to start the trip by visiting this place for us to know and understand what Cambodia is. They suffered a lot a few decades ago and only just now they are recovering from this terrible tragedy. We must understand and help Cambodia by being a responsible traveler.
