Cambodia has been through an almost unbelievable last century. It was a very emotional visit, very important to see. This country has been through so much, you cannot go to cambodia and not learn about the war.

Without already knowing the history of war in Cambodia, visitors may find this a more curious than educational place to walk through. The Cambodian government should invest in making this a public museum instead of a tourist side attraction in Siem Reap.
