Choeng Ek Killing Fields & Tuol Sleng Museum

Phnom Penh Tours - Half Day

While modern Cambodia has completely emerged from its “Khmer Rouge” shadow, the actual word itself still conjures up all kinds of undesirable images. But rather than dwelling on negativity, this half-day tour gives you a good balance of Cambodia’s past and present by combining a visit to the killing fields at Choeung Ek and Tuol Sleng Museum with a tour of the bustling Russian Market.

Between one and two and a half million Cambodians perished under the Khmer Rouge regime (1975-1979). The Khmer Rouge set up a system of Security Prison across the city, and within 1-2km of this prison were the killing fields used to exterminate those labelled as ‘political prisoners’. What’s left at Choeung Ek and Tuol Sleng are remnants of their notorious action – human skulls, shards of bones, hair and an eerie silence that nearly makes you weep.
