ITINERARY

Tuol Sleng & Killing Fields - Half Day

Today’s tour will begin at 08:00. Explore the tragic recent history of Cambodia with a guided Khmer Rouge tour to two of the country’s most notorious sites.

Start with a visit to Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, also known as S-21. Originally built as a school, the compound was taken over by the Khmer Rouge and used as its main detention and torture centre. Take a sobering tour of the site, learning about the prison’s history and hear the stories of the people held within its walls.

Continue on to the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek. This rural compound was used as an execution site and burial ground for some of the millions killed during by the Khmer Rouge regime. Learn about the atrocities and brutal killings that occurred at this site.

Before the day comes to close, stop at the Russian Market. This bustling bazaar earned its name in the 1980s as the expat Russian population often shopped here. These days the market is filled with everything from souvenirs to local handicrafts, silver jewelry to electronic goods.
