    Fantastic attraction

    The site, although in beautiful surroundings is a horrific memoir of the atrocities that occurred during the pol pot regime. What makes it even more harrowing is that it wasn’t even that long ago that this occurred. I would strongly recommend getting the audio headset which takes you on a walking tour where you can learn about the history of the grounds and some of the stories of other survivors of systematic killings and torture during the regime.
    It’s easiest, and cheapest to get a Tuk Tuk to take you there. It is a little way out of town but they get you there swiftly.

    Excellent

    This was one of the first places I experienced in this city when I arrived at my riverfront hostel. I walked around at sunset, watched the families play and checked out the hustle and bustle of the area. The river has boats frequently passing by and it’s a great place to take photos. There was a workout group dancing to hip-hop music which was really cool to see. There is an obvious sign of the devastating poverty in this area with homeless or begging children and families. There was a lot of people selling books or other local items to tourists and many children appeared exploited. It is a real mix and will place you right into the heart of Phnom Penh.

    Fantastic attraction

    Its not always nice seeing sad places whilst traveling, but its part of the country and you will understand Cambodia way more after visiting the Killing Fields and the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. People from the government were tortured here and you can see the rooms where it happened and how people were tortured. In one room I even saw some blood on the wall which was shocking. The whole place reminds you of a bad movie and people that died there should never be forgotten.
