We’ve been to Rwanda (Genocide) and Germany/Poland (concentration camps). The Killing Fields is as sad as any. The tour is a very good audio tour with about 20 stops. Not a lot left to see but the story is memorable and very sad.

We did S21 first in Phnom Penh, nothing can prepare you for S21. What happened during the civil war in Cambodia was truly shocking, the old school which was turned in to a detention and torture centre. They could have demolished it but instead kept...More

Both the Killing Fields and S21 are shocking reminders of the horrors of the Pol Pot regime. Both of these venues offer heartbreaking reminders of the cruelty of that despot and his cronies, atrocities that no one should ever forget. I suggest that visiting these...More

The place is somber but well worth the historic reminder. By a good guide book, or better yet hire a guide. Many Cambodians have a connection to the evil that occurred and will share their personal heartache as a reminder of the evils of war.

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.
