Genocide is not really for reviewing. We had the opportunity to meet a survivor. Which reduced me to tears.

For a great historical and cultural understanding of Cambodia, this is a MUST visit. It will be very vivid, emotional, heartbreaking, and touching, but it is worth visiting.

Sad, depressing, upsetting but like all such places - essential to visit. A reminder that such terrible things still continue in the world. Terrible to read about the attitude of most western governments towards Pol Pot - especially Sweden, and subsequent treatment of Cambodia after...More

It's difficult to give a 5 star rating to an attraction that is so incredibly sad.. Genuine tears were shed while walking around this place. Having said that, I think it's super important for people to see these things and learn about stuff like this.....More

An emotionally moving place that shouldn’t exist. Worth the visit to learn the pain of the Cambodian people, and take away some valuable lessons. I recommend you take your time. As such, it’s best to grab any Tuk Tuk from your hotel in the centre...More

A place of unimaginable atrocities. The audio tour was excellent and did a good job of explaining the background of the Khmer Rouge period, what happened at Choeung Ek and also made it personal. Very sad, but important to visit to understand Cambodia's recent history...More

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
