The visit here is very sad. It questions "how humans can be so brutal towards other humans". The grounds are pocketed with mass graves that still hold the victims of the horrific deeds committed here. Vivid pictures of murders carried out leave you speechless. The "tower of skulls" is a somber monument of the suffering that these simple, humble, peace-loving... More

If you're in the area, don't miss this. I learned so much about recent Cambodian history. The audio tour is excellent.

The story it tells is tragic and must be told so hopefully the world will not let this happen again. The setting has been well prepared for visitors and the head set commentary is excellent.

I've seen pictures for years and never gave it much thought. The visit brings out the complexity and details of what the Regime was doing to it's own people. So hard to imagine this type of killing. Hard to believe Cambodians are capable but hunger and fear will cause these kind of astrocities. The visit was well worth the $6... More

A visit to the Killing Fields, when combined with a visit to Tuol Sleng, provides a harrowing but essential explanation of the dark years of the Khmer Rouge. The audio guide is a must - provides a very moving narrative from a survivor and is very good value at $6. This should be high on the list for anyone visiting... More

This visit is not for faint of heart. It is a very strong reminder of man's inhumanity to man. Well worth the visit.

It is the continuation of Khmer Rough crimes, place where tortured people were killed and left in mass graves. Men, women, children, babies..all were doomed for extermination because they were from educated families or maybe they were wearing glasses.. mass graves are moving in a way still and after the rain there can be found fractures of bones, teeth, cloth...

One of the highlights of the city which has to be visited. A very touching and chilling place which acts as a stern reminder of the horrors of the recent past of this amazing country and it's incredible people

Although the accounts are so harrowing it's important to visit this site. It gives detailed accounts of the horrific yhings that took place under the Pol Pot regime. We spent approx 2 hours here but we could have spent longer. It all depends on how fast you walk around and how much of the audio tour you want to listen... More
