Welcome to the Mad Monkey Hostels Tours. During the day visit the Mad Monkey and jump on one of our Tuk Tuk tours out to the killing fields and S21, pay a fair price for your tour to the Tuk Tuk driver for a half day tour of both facilities. Then join us for dinner and then at night time do something positive.

Then in the evening do something positive by attending our crawl for School event. The Crawl for School is a weekly pub crawl designed for young tourists and backpackers. Wrist bands cost $5 and provide you half priced drinks all night, 100% of your $5 wristband is used to fund education projects for poor kids in Cambodia.

The event starts at the Mad Monkey rooftop bar in Phnom Penh every Thursday night, then hits Top Banana and Love Bar. It is great night out and a great way to donate to kids education in Cambodia.

Tuk Tuk tour of the killing fields $12 - $15 (Depending on number of people)

Eat at The Mad Monkey restaurant wide menu with prices starting between $4 and $10 per plate.

Cocktails at our rooftop bar! Join the party and buy a wrist band from $5 per person.

Cambodia lost 1/4 of its population and this shows you how they died, so sad

These fields have contained the bodies of so many innocent people, including children. I think we all need to witness the way this country and its beautiful people were tortured and murdered by their own. To see the skulls and bones, including teeth still coming up through the ground, was so disturbing and unimagable this actually happened so recently.

Our second visit to the Killing Fields was just as emotional as the first time. One cannot stop and shead tears at the Killing Tree. The moment you set foot onto this sacred land is incredibly moving. We visited s21 first and were mortified and angry whlist walking around the cells...meeting the only survivor was immensly humbling (make sure you... More

Both were heartbreaking but education. You feel that you have learnt alot about Cambodia history and what they have been through . You don't need to book with a tour company, we paid 2$ each way too to s21 and 10$ return to the killing filelds. Also with the audio tour you can take your time and spend time alone... More

As one of my friends was a survivor of the killing fields this deeply added to the emotion of this harrowing experience. Modern day Cambodia with its missing generation has emerged out of this gruesome madness.

This is where the Pol Pot regime murdered thousands and thousands of people, where men, women ,children and babies were murdered and put into mass graves which they themselves had dug. It makes one think as to how this could happen where these killing fields were all over the country not just in the capital Phnom Penh. Over 2 Million... More

Such a sad(yet very good to do at the same time) tour as you learn some of the barbaric things that went on at a period of time you just don't associate it with. More than likely you'll become overwhelmed with feelings as you see and read about the events which took place. Take your time going around both venues... More

We went to both of these sites as part of an organised tour so can't comment on entry costs. I personally found that the Killing field site was not that well preserved and while I knew something really awful had happened there I didn't feel it. More could be done to enhance the experience including putting more explanations up about... More

You must visit the killing fields when you visit Phnom Penh. It is only about 45 minutes from the city, easily to reach his tuk tuk or taxi. Entrance is $6 and includes a free audio tour, which is fantastic - includes information about the whole Khmer Rogue time and this particular killing field itself including stories from survivors. We... More

This daytrip is well worth it's money. You'll get a good impression of the horrific things that happened during the regime of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. The audiotour is a must to complete the surroundings with the proper information and is available in different languages including: English, Dutch, German, French and Spain.
