The audio guided tour which is available in many languages including English and French, tells the story from many perspectives. It is designed to serve as a stark reminder of what power in the wrong hands can do. It is graphic but tastefully done. The stories pull at your heart strings and it makes you marvel at how well Cambodia... More

I cannot say that I enjoyed the tour but that is was done very respectfully for the souls that are at rest there. I was very humbled and moved by the experience. It was an interesting Tuk Tuk ride from our Hotel and every Cambodian that I spoke to in Phnom Penh are eager for all visitors to know and... More

The killing fields take you right into one of more than 300 killing fields where so many people got massacred, It's a very hard and emotional place to be but cannot be avoided. An audio tour device is provided with the entry ticket and available in many langues. I found it very informative and easy to listen to, you can... More

We hadn't intended to visit the Killing Fields as it was an optional part of our trip but our guide was so keen to show us we agreed to go. I'm glad we did but it was a very upsetting visit, made worse somehow because it was so recent and all the Cambodians we met had a terrible story to... More

This was an optional tour following our visit to Tuil Sleng Genocide Museum and we felt we needed to visit this site. We were taken around the site of the mass graves and saw the bones and pieces of clothing still being found. The memorial Stupa is where the remains of Choeung Ek's victims are preserved. It an be very... More

To fully understand how 20th Century Communist ideology operated under a tyrant like Pol Pot you have to see the killing fields and this museum. It is a must see especially for students who have radical beliefs. Equally as hideous as the Holocaust these poor innocent men women and children were savagely murdered. Go, look, weep.

Harrowing and somber.Only one of over 300 killing field sight in Cambodia, but conveys the true horror of the Pol Pot regime

We visited early one morning and spent an hour using the audio guide which includes voices from those who were involved at the time. It's obviously a harrowing place and you can't helped be touched by the incredibly awful story. For anyone who has read books or seen films like Killing Fields this is an essential stop even though it's... More
