This place is quite far from the central of Phnom Penh. 30 more minutes I thought. Don't remember it since I fall a sleep :D The place is quite hot. And also I think it's better if they give more informations in some places, without the audio. Because not every tourist understand everything in the audio (if the audio does... More

This is a sombre reminder of the cruelty of the Khmer Rouge regime. There is a quiet respect on the faces of those who visit the site. The Memorial Stupa contains the remains of victims found there. What shocks is that the Khmer Rouge as such was never really brought to justice and, in fact, are those that govern the... More

Tragic piece of history which is important to know about when visiting Cambodia, but the audio tour and general area were poorly put together and didn't provide the insight I thought I'd get from this visit. The stupor was a highlight. S21 prison provides a much better insight into the genocide.

This is one of the many Cambodian Killing Fields. A very sad part of the history of the Cambodian people where the Khmer Rouge killed thousands of their people and buried them in mass graves like the ones here. There are clearly marked pathways to walk around on and many signs as well as an audio guide available if you... More

It seems impossible that men could treat innocent people with the brutality that occurred during the Pol Pot regime. But it happened and what you see here is not sugarcoated. Very moving but not to be missed.

The audio recorded tour makes this an informative and enlightening stop. I visited with a toddler and he was ok there as I could listen to the tour with one ear while walking around with him.

If you do nothing else in Phnom Penh you must visit the genocide centre and give yourself plenty time to do so. I spent 4 hours here. The tour was self guided with audio information and it was very thorough on its facts on the history of the Khmer Rouge. My heart broke many times, it's quite harrowing to learn... More
