Until you actually have a conversation with one of the free guides, this museum will just be a mango orchard with some old rusting military armoury and artillery. After we toured around the facility and took some photos, we sat down with our guide and...More

Knowing the story of Cambodia’s 20th century is as important as the country’s 10th century history. A sobering look inside Cambodia’s dark past is why the War Museum was on our list and should be on yours too. Keep in mind that there is the...More
