My recommendation is hire a tour guide or read before you visit this place. You need a strong heart for the stories and the torture that khmer people have experienced. Go when weather is a bit cooler.

It’s an important location to visit and remember history that’s all too recent. Horrible to think about the atrocities that people are willing to commit against another human being. Some terrible stories are documented here about the massive amount of killings in the 70’s. Well...More

It seems strange to give this 5 stars because of the horrors. These people were massacred not because they were the enemy, or for any religious reason, but simply of there intelligence. You also have to remember this is just one of hundreds of killing...More

This is on the outskirts of the city, it took about 40 minutes by car. The site is very moving, although my teenage daughters found the S21 Museum more informative. This was because the buildings at Choeung Ek have been destroyed (which in my opinion...More

This is the actual place. The killing fields. There are bones and clothing still coming out of the ground from this horrific tragedy. Might not be the best place to take a child. I’ve been here twice now and both times felt physically ill from...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
