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

Be prepared for the horrors of the Khmer Rouge when you are here. Very sobering place but shouldn't be missed. Leave your children at home.

It's a self guided tour with an audiobook. You go to various stations and the narrator (a survivor of the Khmer Rouge regime) tells you the horrors and atrocities committed by the government forces. It's very awful and sad to hear what took place but it's a place people should visit if you're visiting Cambodia. There are still places you... More

Very moving place to visit and an essential introduction to Cambodias recent history. You get guided round by an audio guide so there is no need to pay for a tour. Tuktuk should be no more than 15 USD return.

A must visit in Phnom Penh. A devastating part of their history which they are rightfully eager to educate the world about. 6 dollar entry with audio tour.

My god what an emotional place, if you don't know what happened here, find out. Our guide lost two brothers to the Khmer rouge, she had some stories to tell us. The rainy season still exposes bodies killed by the Evil Regime of the Khmer Rouge. A very emotional place to visit, but glad we did. LOVE AND PEACE TO... More

Even if you do not think you can handle this, do it... you will be so disappointed if you don't... I love the way that you can go through the memorial at your own pace with the audio tour.. gives you time to reflect when you have to as certain things hit harder sometimes... like I said, a must!!

Definitely worth visiting but do S21 first. It makes sense to follow the journey of the victims. Incredibly calm quiet place evoking many different emotions. $6 entry with audio head set with about 19 stops. Audio is very sensitively presented as are the various areas you walk round. Paid $15 from centre of PP in the tuk tuk for a... More
