A trip to Phnom Penh is not complete without a visit to the Killing Fields. Informative audio tour of the site detailing the horrors that occurred here. Rain will expose more bones and clothing over time which some may find confronting. The centre is tastefully...More

The feeling of loss here is immense. Take an audio tour and listen to all the extra parts - harrowing. The final stop is heart wrenching.
