There is nothing pleasant about this place but something everyone should see so they can understand what the Kemerovo Rouge done. It is a must to do the audio guide as it explains each site properly. I paid my respect within the Stupa to the...More

Met with one of the few survivors of the genocide committed by the Khmer Rouge. Chris and I (two teachers) learned that the torture he went through happened at the site of a former high school. Rooms where children would come to learn and grown...More

Full of history and very moving. Personally I would chop down the Killing Tree and just have a sign telling what had been there, having the actual tree still standing is too much horror.

Easy to navigate through the challenging past. This site is a must visit for students and leaders to instill a sense of empathy. The audio guide is a must and cheap on TOP of the ticket price. It’s well curated and helped me to understand...More

This is a must-see. It's deeply moving and disturbing. There are teeth and bones and pieces of clothing still scattered all over the ground, so be prepared for gruesomeness. Cambodia has done a very good job of sanctifying and preserving a terrible place.

An amazing experience and a must see when visiting Cambodia. The audio tour was informative and worth the extra charge.

The best attraction in Phnom Penh. Really gives you a feel of what took place with the killings of the Khmer Rouge. There is an audio tour at no extra cost, well worth listening to. Some accounts from Cambodian people who lived through it. Also...More

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
