Historical Phnom Penh Small-Group Tour, including Genocide Museum and Killing Fields
From US$46.40
Overview
Discover the history and horror of Phnom Penh’s past on this half-day, small-group tour. Follow the path of one of the most tragic times of the 20th century – the rise and fall of the Khmer Rouge – and see how the country has been rebuilt.
What to Expect

The day starts by learning about the tragic and fascinating recent history of Cambodia. See the location where journalists camped out in 1975 on the eve of the Khmer Rouge takeover, and the ghostly building that has been left burnt-out and bullet-holed as it stood after the war.

Confront Cambodia's tragic past, on a guided tour of the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, a former school which served as a Khmer Rouge torture centre. Then head out of the city to the Choueng Ek Memorial, where a pagoda made up of some 8,000 human skulls marks the site of one of the infamous Killing Fields.

Finish by sampling some interesting Khmer snacks and exploring how this recent history and politics continue to affect the lives of average Cambodian.

An eye-opening tour, executed well

Although a chilling and sobering experience, it is incredibly important to visit and learn about the S21 prison and Killing Fields. The tour was executed well. We initially visited S21 for 1.5hrs with the guide explaining each unit and the presented photographs, we then travelled...More
