Killing Fields, Phnom Penh: 62 reviews and 167 photos


Gruesome? Yes. Sad? The worst! Should I go ? Absolutely!

This is no doubt one of those places that shows mankind at its worst. Its hauntingly quiet here .No fancy displays. 1975-1979 too close for comfort and my senses couldn't take it all in.

Behind glass there are 8000 human skulls ,men women and babies. This stomach churning reality will live on in my dreams.

I wondered ,if the bones should have been buried ,out of respect ? But so important is their story ,I think they are here to ensure we listen. There plea to stop this kind of brutality willlive on with all who visit this sad corner of Cambodia.

Admission $2.00 .Guide $5.00 ( recommended)
