This is one of the most emotional memorial sites I've ever visited. The audio tour is a must. To hear the stories of so many that lived through this horrific time. Words can't explain this site you have to visit it for yourself to understand.

Definitely worth a visit! There is an audio tour which is very informative and adds a lot more value to your visit. We took a tuktuk from downtown Phnom Pehn. The driver waited us there. The cost of the tuktuk was 15$ for the three of us, so 5$ each. The entrance fee was 6$, that includes the audio headset.... More

The Choeung Ek Genocide centre is a poignant tribute to those who lost their lives in a brutal regieme. The headsets are great for info and included in the entry cost. They have updated the area to make the site very 'tourist friendly' but it doesn't feel like a tourist site, it is all done in a very respectful fashion.... More

This feels like an important place to visit. It is sad, peaceful and somehow beautiful and the audio tour is excellent. A must see.

Coming here was my main purpose for visiting Phnom Penh. It was moving and so worth the trip. However, the structures have long been torn down and the site relies on signs and (an excellent) audio tour. However, you still get some feel for the horrors that occurred here. They've got to find a better way to preserve what is... More

A great trip facilitated by excellent tour on personal headphones that you could skip through or explore in more detail to suit. Very peaceful and contemplative environment. Accounts/ testimony of brutality were easily accessible for adults whilst we were able to limit what our youngest child (aged 12) heard and saw. I will never forget the killing tree and the... More

Great memorial to the people and very informative. Crazy to think it was only 35 years ago. Very respectful and thought provoking. Well maintained. $6 entry fee including audio tour. Have visited previously in 2009 and interesting and good to see it has been updated with latest information still developing. Definitely worth a visit.

Like Tuol Sleng, Choeung Ek (aka The Killing Fields) is a sad and poignant reminder of how recently Cambodia suffered so much
