Hi, guys! I would just like to ask: how much is the entrance fee and audio guide at Killing Fields? Will be visiting on Thursday. Also, how much should I pay for tuk-tuk from Russian Market to Killing Fields? Thank you very much.

A must see if you’re in Phnom Penh. Extremely sad but very well done. The audio tour was great as it gave us lots of information - would highly recommend doing this. Emotional but glad I went.

Harrowing and strange experience but one that you simply have to do when in Cambodia. We took the audio tour which I would highly recommend as it is really well done and informative. Saw people taking smiling selfies here which was excruciating to see.

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
