It was well worth viewing this small open air museum. Our guide "Lucky" was able to give a humbling and enlightening account of such truly dreadful times. Certainly, the exhibits are poor and the information boards could do with a good spruce up but don't...More

Cambodia has been through an almost unbelievable last century. It was a very emotional visit, very important to see. This country has been through so much, you cannot go to cambodia and not learn about the war.
