This is a must see please in PP to truely understand what happened to so many Cambodia people. Very sad, but at the same time a peaceful place to pay respects. We went early and had the place to ourselves.

This is a must see if you're interested in learning about the history of Cambodia. I took an audio tour through the site and it was extremely informative, combining facts and personal stories from survivors. I highly recommend you visit!

Although Harrowing. A must visit for Cambodia. Only after personally experiencing this site can you begin to understand this country's past. Sensitively handled, the tour gives one time to reflect, remember and contemplate. Recommend.

So devastating but a must see. Helpful to read about the genocide ahead of time for more history and understanding. I strongly recommend, "First They Killed My Father".

Good place to visit to get a real understanding off the atrocities that were committed against the Cambodian people during the war in 1975 by Pol Pot's communist party.

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

For us it took about 45 mins to get there. Our hotel is near the National Museum in downtown. You can pretty much decide yourself how long the audio tour is. The tour has about 19 chapters and you can listen to them... More
