It is what it is. If you have any thoughts at all about coming here, then you should have an idea of what happened at this place. You must have some kind of inkling or preconceived notions or something, perhaps even a smattering of history....More

Highly recommend reading up a little about the Khmer Rouge regime before you visit, so as to properly appreciate what you'll learn in your visit. The audio tour is worth the price. We paid $8 per person ($5 without the audio tour) and took about...More
