If you love history and have a liking for gruesome place then this is a must. This place is a proof of how dark and unimaginable suffering that Cambodian have to go thru during Pol Pot era.

This attraction is probably better known as "The Killing Fields" which pretty much tells you all you need to know about what occurred in what now looks a bit like a park. The audio tour fills in all the details and does so sensitively but without diminishing the horrors of what went on. It is undoubtedly upsetting but undoubtedly entirely... More

The entrance for the museum is 3$ and another 3$ for the audio guide, which is highly recommended! No student discounts here unfortunately. The great audio guide will let you relive the past of the Cambodian genocide which happened in the Choeung Ek,and tells a horrible story about about the not so distant past. Give yourself atleast 1 to 2... More

Our experience at the Choeung Ek Genocidal Center is one we can never forget. Seeing first hand the actual killing fields where many Cambodians lost their lives is truly an eye opening experience for us. The stupa holding the thousands of skulls and bones of the people who were killed there will be a constant reminder that evil things such... More

While this place was difficult to visit emotionally, the setting and scenery made the contrast between the horrific events that occurred in the past vs the beautiful place it has become, a truly warming experience, and one I'm glad I have had he opportunity to have.

Chilling and heartbreaking. A very emotionally disturbing tribute to the 1000's of men women and children who perished at the hands of the khmer rouge regime.

It is worth to visit this place and pay tribute to 1.7 million people who has paid for their life during this dark history of the khmer people.

If you're in Phnom Penh you really must go. I think it's so important for thr awareness. I suggest going to the Tuol Slueng prison first. Be prepared this is a very sad place. You'll get no joy here.

We were apprehensive to bring our 5 and 6 year old from what we had read, but weren't sure we'd be back in PP to see it at a later date. Other than the bones in the memorial, there are no graphic images which we were glad about for their sake. The audio tour was fantastic and there were parts... More
