Welcome to the Mad Monkey Hostels Tours. During the day visit the Mad Monkey and jump on one of our Tuk Tuk tours out to the killing fields and S21, pay a fair price for your tour to the Tuk Tuk driver for a half day tour of both facilities. Then join us for dinner and then at night time do something positive. Then in the evening do something positive by attending our crawl for School event. The Crawl for School is a weekly pub crawl designed for young tourists and backpackers. Wrist bands cost $5 and provide you half priced drinks all night, 100% of your $5 wristband is used to fund education projects for poor kids in Cambodia. The event starts at the Mad Monkey rooftop bar in Phnom Penh every Thursday night, then hits Top Banana and Love Bar. It is great night out and a great way to donate to kids education in Cambodia. Tuk Tuk tour of the killing fields $12 - $15 (Depending on number of people) Eat at The Mad Monkey restaurant wide menu with prices starting between $4 and $10 per plate. Cocktails at our rooftop bar! Join the party and buy a wrist band from $5 per person.

My experience there was more of a reflection. It is a killing field but now it is quiet. Just shows change can transform something as dark as a mass grave into a beautiful park.

No bag storage at killing fields. Use the airport facility for that or your hotel. Transport is cheap. Use a taxi service and keep it with you. If you are going through a tour company, they may be able to help you.

This is a sad story but with historical significance. We would suggest you still have a look of this place still because it is part of Cambodia's history.
