This is a sobering reminder of the depths of inhumanity. Oof. Be sure to get the audio guide--one of the better audio-guides I've experienced. It covers it all, and then some. We had to take a few moments at the end to recover, but it...More

Very moving experience and you will no doubt leave feeling upset but such a must do . Audio headsets provided, very easy to follow, advise tuk tuk or taxi to get there as not so easy to spot

Can only describe this experience like watching a sad movie and multiply the emotion by 100 times because this unfortunately is a TRUE story.

Would recommend doing the tour, it is very interesting and intense but you can’t visit Cambodia and not see the killing fields! Only $6 for entry and audio! The audio is very detailed and you get to hear personal stories also! A must see!

We did the audio tour, which was very helpful in explaining all of the different rooms, devices used, and of course the stories of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge in great detail. Throughout the visit I felt a pressure on my body that I...More

The site itself is very misleading / surprising. In its looks- a garden, a lake - although neglected it must have been a pretty idyllic set up... unfortunately this place has witnessed so much cruelty that after walking around led by the audio guide one...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
