We first visited the S21 museum before visiting the Killing Fields, which I definitely recommend and it gives you more of an understanding. Our Tuk Tuk driver took us to both and... read more

It seemed that only a small part of the fields were opened cuz there was not much to see. The pits were dug up and emptied, so it was like seeing a hole in the ground, except for some pits, the Centre put a sign saying what happened there. There is a memorial building which you should see. You can... More

Strictly as a visit, it is not spectacular: plain field, audio guides on certain spots (trees, bones...). However, it makes you realize the magnitude of what was going on in Cambodia not so many years ago. Also it helps understand the country now. Besides it is a very emotional visit.

I realise now how little I knew about the hardship that the Cambodian people went through in the very recent past. This is now a tranquil place with people visiting for many different reasons no doubt. $6US to get in and you get an audio tour which is very nicely done. You can go at our own pace and hear...

High on our list of 'things to see' the Genocidal Center or Killing Fields still blew our minds! The displays, holes, remains, and descriptions tell the story of the horrors from the late 70's which is still hard to imagine in this day and age. 1000's of people killed in this place alone but many more throughout the country. So... More

This place is a very interesting museum like area. Be prepared tho its quite extreme to see the killing fields. I would advise everyone to take the audio your and not take a tour guide. The audio tour is incredibly accurate and amazing how the story of the killing fields is told

This is a must see for anyone visiting Cambodia--a real horrific part of history that many people are unfamiliar with. It is well presented with lots of relics from that era. It is necessary to visit this site in conjunction with the Toul Slang museum.

This was such a sobering but needed experience. We are fortunate the Cambodian people invite outsiders to visit this place. The audio guide is a must. Wear good shoes, modest attire and be prepared to be humbled.

This is just a MUST do if you want to understand the culture and recent history of Cambodia. The "killing fields' seem so peacefull, but underneath this layer you experience horror stories of the 1970's. Positives: - reasonable price - free audio guide in many languages: Dutch, German, etc. - the audio guides are of excellent quality - helpfull staff... More
