A must visit to learn what these people went through. How man kind can be so terribly bad. Teeth and bones still visible and coming up in the soil when it rains. Lots of mass graves... some excavated. Sombre place

The place is so unbelievably calm and serene that it is easy to think that all the atrocities that happened here never really took place. A visit to this site won't be complete without the audio guide. It's worth it!

Sad monument to the atrocities that happened here. It is hard not to come away slightly changed. The stories are horrific mainly because they are all true.

A very humbling experience. The audio tour is included in the price of the ticket and totally worth it.

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
