It seems strange to give this 5 stars because of the horrors. These people were massacred not because they were the enemy, or for any religious reason, but simply of there intelligence. You also have to remember this is just one of hundreds of killing...More

Don't mix it with S-21 prison turned into a museum. That's worth visiting too. These are killing fields situated about 15 km from main city. Mass graves and excavated bones, skulls, clothes of victims used as evidence against the then regime turned into a museum...More

This is on the outskirts of the city, it took about 40 minutes by car. The site is very moving, although my teenage daughters found the S21 Museum more informative. This was because the buildings at Choeung Ek have been destroyed (which in my opinion...More

This is the actual place. The killing fields. There are bones and clothing still coming out of the ground from this horrific tragedy. Might not be the best place to take a child. I’ve been here twice now and both times felt physically ill from...More

I decided to visit the killing fields late on a rainy Saturday. As soon as I walked in I could feel something so heavy settle on my shoulders. I listened to the audio guide, walking slowly and absorbing the pain, death and horror of what...More

This must rate alongside Auschwitz as a site dedicated to how tyrants can lead a country into genocide. The shear butchery that was perpetrated in the name of one man's distorted view of nationalism is astounding and is a MUST for visitors to see. Well...More

This was an incredibly hard place to visit. The history and memories behind were heartbreaking but it was important to visit and understand this part of Cambodia’s history. We visited with a private tour guide which I think was the best way to do it....More

A real must if you are in Phnom Penh and very worthwhile. It is very hard to believe that people can be this cruel. There also is an audiotape in several languages that really explains very well what happened during the Khmer Rouge period.

This is a difficult trip, but a needed one if you are going to be in Cambodia and Phnom Penh and want to understand the recent history. The audio tour offers chilling insight into the site and it is a unique experience.

We went here after the genocide museum. Most tuk tuk drivers will take you to both. The audio guide is brilliant. As you wander the paths it takes you through the history of the centre and the Khmer Rouge regime. The place is well set...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
