You will visit National Museum.Cambodia's National Museum offers a charming setting for a stunning collection of ancient Khmer art.Predominantly constructed of sandstone,the sculptures date from both the Angkorean and pre-Angkorean eras.These exhibits are complemented by more recent examples of Cambodian art.The museum is housed in a terra-cotta-roofed structure of traditional Cambodian design,which was built between 1917 and 1920

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum
Continue to Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum.Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum was one of hundreds of detention and interrogation centers created all over Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge who gave the former high school the sinisterly innocuous name S-21 where countless thousands of Cambodians were ruthlessly processed until they were dead.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Choeung Ek Genocidal Center
After lunch at your own cost you will visit Choeung Ek Genocidal Center.It represents one of the all too frequent dark periods in world history,this one between 1975 to1979.During these four years of awful civil war an estimated 1.7 million people were massacred.This place of incredible tragedy has today been sensitively converted into a peaceful visitors’ centre and the disturbing story is retold;we are walking across the very ground where nearly 20,000 Cambodians were murdered.Even today,following periods of heavy rain,fragments of clothing and bones from victims will surface through the mud.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Wat Ounalom
Next you will visit Wat Ounalom.Wat Ounalom is the home to the Buddhist patriarch and is reputedly the oldest Buddhist foundation in the city.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Russian Market
You will head to Russian Market.Russian Market is the most popular market among tourists and expats and the best place to pick up souvenirs. Russian market is known to the locals as Phsar Toul Tom Poung.The reason why it is called Russian market is because it was a popular market among the Russian expats during the 1980s when most of the western expats in Phnom Penh were Russian.

At approximately 06:00 pm,you'll arrive back at your hotel in Phnom Penh city where the tour will end.

Lasting Memories

An enjoyable and interesting day. Seeing the Killing Fields and the Prison was an experience we will never forget and made us appreciate how terrifying that period of Cambodia's history must have been. Our guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable. I would happily recommend this tour.
Great Guide

We booked this tour on online and our experience with MAM Holidays was excellent. Kept us informed all the way. Mr Channy was our guide and he was great. Unfortunately I cannot remember our drivers name but he was also a very nice and friendly gentleman. They arrived at our hotel on time and made sure we get back on-time as we requested as well. The actual tour was very good but the highlights was the killing fields and prison and whilst I say highlight it is also very emotional, but Mr Channy made sure we comfortable and fully informed all the time. We opted not to do a lunch but you can actually skip the Russian Market and National Museum (we did not enjoy them that much) and go for a nice lunch.
Wonderful tour with an amazing tour...

Wonderful tour with an amazing tour guide Dara. Although the killing fields and S21 interrogation school is very harrowing to view it is a huge part of Cambodia's history and Dara did not hold back on answering some very personal questions regarding his family's history as well as the history of the country. All of the sites from the Royal Palace through to Wat Phnom were interesting and unique and having Dara as our guide added a greater depth of understanding. As we are not shoppers we skipped the markets and spent more time at other sites plus a great cafe for lunch - Browns Coffee Cafe. We have never had a personal guide for tours before but were pleased we spent the extra for this tour especially been able to have Dara as our guide. Highly recommended.
