The Killing Fields will bring you face-to-face with the brutal reality of the Khmer Rouge period. It was a death camp where the Khmer Rouge killed around 17,000 of their own people. Most of the victims were also prisoners of Tuol Seng, the former high school, which was transformed into a prison and place of torture. The Killing Fields is located 15km to the south-west of Phnom Penh, and allows you to glimpse into the horrors of this dark chapter of Cambodia’s history. We finish this tour with a cleansing ceremony at a local temple to honor those lost.
We recommend this tour for people aged 16 years and over, due to the confronting nature of the Killing Fields. Adults should use their discretion on the ability of their children to deal with this experience.

What To Expect
Your day starts with a drive past the Independence Monument, which was built in 1958 to celebrate Cambodia’s independence from France. It is an icon of Phnom Penh. From here, you will take a visit to Lake Beungtompum Village, where you get a glimpse into a traditional village and the residents’ daily life.
While enjoying a local traditional snack from a road side stall, you will travel through the outer suburbs of Phnom Penh.
It’s a somber thought that these were the roads that were the last journey traveled by the victims as they were taken to the Killing Fields.
