When learning about the Khmer Rogue genocide in Phnom Penh, most people do both the S21 Prison and the Killing Fields. Personally, I felt the prison was more interesting, not to mention right in the heart of the city - while yes, the killing fields were equally heartbreaking, I didn't find the exhibits there as well done, plus it requires...

This place is a must visit, it's a very moving and serious place that people need to visit. I don't want to sound all hippie but the place has a very disturbing aura when you walk around listening to the excellently narrated audio tape.

My wife and I visited here whilst staying in Phnomh Penh and travelled via Tuk Tuk from the centre of town which took about 30 minutes as it is situated 15km from the town centre. Entry was 6 dollars which also included the supply of head phones and audio commentary. Access around site is mainly on a wooden boardwalk with... More

Such a somber and humbling place. We did a guided tour - It really helped us understand the Cambodian history and appreciate what all these people went through. Brought tears to my eyes while listening to the stories. I read about the Khmer Rouge history but it was so different standing in the killing fields. Definitely worth the visit.

This can be a disturbing couple hours, but you must understand this part of Cambodia history. If you come away saying "never again if I can help it" then you get it. Otherwise, then you need to go again and name some people you love as you look at this human tragedy.

This all happened in the 1970's, not long ago. Follow the story of the tragedy of the Cambodian people and it is so moving. Not a pleasant day out but these terrible events should never be forgotten. Please be respectful on your visit.

Was eye opening to take a tuk tuk out here and learn about all of this. For the price you pay though we were a little disappointed that it was just a few boards to read and all sort s of buildings were gone. So you couldn't get a true sense for it all. But we are still happy we... More

We saw the Genocide Museum (S-21) first before going here. This is a tough place to visit to imagine what went on from 1975-79..that the world did seemingly nothing to stop. You listen to a headset as you walk through the grounds. Not for the faint of heart but an important educational experience.
