Welcome to the Mad Monkey Hostels Tours. During the day visit the Mad Monkey and jump on one of our Tuk Tuk tours out to the killing fields and S21, pay a fair price for your tour to the Tuk Tuk driver for a half day tour of both facilities. Then join us for dinner and then at night time do something positive.

Then in the evening do something positive by attending our crawl for School event. The Crawl for School is a weekly pub crawl designed for young tourists and backpackers. Wrist bands cost $5 and provide you half priced drinks all night, 100% of your $5 wristband is used to fund education projects for poor kids in Cambodia.

The event starts at the Mad Monkey rooftop bar in Phnom Penh every Thursday night, then hits Top Banana and Love Bar. It is great night out and a great way to donate to kids education in Cambodia.

Tuk Tuk tour of the killing fields $12 - $15 (Depending on number of people)

Eat at The Mad Monkey restaurant wide menu with prices starting between $4 and $10 per plate.

Cocktails at our rooftop bar! Join the party and buy a wrist band from $5 per person.

I was quite disappointed by the place as there was techno music played very loudly just next door and that from my pint of view the audio guide was way too much about how disgusting what happens was instead of being more neutral and more history related. I really have the impression that the context is not describe enough and... More

For just $6 you get an audio tour which you can listen to as many or less stories regarding the fields. It was very education. There is also a small movie you can watch located in the small theatre. You can still see bones in some places coming from the ground. Looking and listening to the audio hard to hear,... More

We visited the Killing Fields and S21 you have to feel for the people of Cambodia and what they went through for so many years under Pol Pot. We have all heard of the Nazi Holocaust however what happened in Cambodia was also a Holocaust but few of us in the Western World know the full story and the true... More

While not at all happy places to visit, they are necessary to understand Camodian history. The Killing Fields are gut wrenching to walk through and I don't think many make it through without crying, but they are so important to see. If more people experience places like this with such recent history of the horrible treatment of humans by humans,... More

Not often am I lost for words. It's hard to imagine these atrocities occurred in recent history during the 1970's. Presented in a very raw context nothing is left to imagine, it is very clear as to what occurred in all its horrendous history. The self guided audio recording is all that is required to purchase, which is included with... More

Here many were brought in trucks and executed - almost all were killed. It is heart touching tour - you wonder why such things still go on, e.g. babies were killed by banging on the tree in a loud music. It's old way killing in 1975-1978 time frame. Please get a audio so you can hear the stories. I couldn't... More

The tour is self-guided. Each person receives a device that allows them to hear audio about a specific place within the property. The amount of history here is vast. Our group only spent a few hours here. If you wanted to you could spend half a day or even a full day here.

We visited the killing fields with some trepidation having read 'first they killed my father' and ' stay alive my son'. This memorial is actually a peaceful site with walkways by the lake near the graves. But the audio tour is powerful and graphic with survivors tales. Particularly sad is the killing tree where they smashed babies to death. The... More
