Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum
Explore the tragic recent history of Cambodia with a guided Khmer Rouge tour to two of the country’s most notorious sites. Start with a visit to Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, also known as S-21. Originally a school, the compound was taken over by the Khmer Rouge and used as its main detention and torture center.

Russian Market
Before the day comes to close, stop at the Russian Market. This bustling bazaar earned its name in the 1980s as the expat Russian population often shopped here. These days the market is filled with everything from souvenirs to local handicrafts, silver jewellery to electronic goods. A fun market to explore and a great place to pick up some extraordinary items!
