Over three years, they massacred and buried 2.5 million people. After remembering the dead, return to Phnom Penh to visit Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (S21).

Well planned tour and well informed guide

Mr Huot and his team are great - the guide Ms Chan was very knowledgeable and a lovely lady. The killing fields are very confronting, but Chan did an amazing job explaining what was happening and helping us understand. Mr Huot is an amazing driver. We use him and his company for years already driving the project team from Aus and NZ all over the country
Interesante

Tour realizado por una freelance, bien organizado con recogida en el hotel incluida. El tour se divide en dos partes: en primer lugar, la visita a la prisión S21. Dado que está en el "centro" de Phnom Penh, esto se puede realizar por tu cuenta ( a nosotros nos hubiera venido incluso mejor, porque tiene audioguias en español y hubiéramos entendido más, ya que a nuestra guía había cosas en inglés que no le entendíamos...). No cogimos la audioguia porque nos parecía un apeqieña falta de respeto hacia la guía..
Fue interesante encontrarnos en el patio de la prisión con uno de los supervivientes, de 91 años, quién está vendiendo un libro con sus vivencias ( también en español) y está deseando hablar con los visitantes.

La segunda parte del tour es la visita a un Killing Field. Este está en el campo, alejado de Phnom Penh, así que supongo que será más difícil hacerlo por tu cuenta. Es emotivo y sobrecogedor conocer esta parte tan tristevde la historia de Camboya.
