Full description
Your Euro-Khmer guide will pick you up from the hotel that you stayed in Phnom Penh and our guide & driver drive you to the killing fields of Choeung Ek – 15 km south of Phnom Penh. The infamous killing fields have a bloody history. Once an orchard and a Chinese cemetery, the Khmer Rogue, lead by Pol Pot, turned the place into what became known as the killing fields. Over four years they massacred and buried 2.5 million people. After remembering the dead, return to Phnom Penh to visit Tuol Sleng Prison. Meaning hill of the poisonous trees, Pol Pot turned a once popular high school into a high security prison. 20,000 people were imprisoned there, many of whom were tortured for information. Today it serves as a museum and a reminder of darker days. Your Euro-Khmer guide will return you to your hotel or guesthouse in the early evening.

Channak was a fantastic guide. We felt so honoured and privileged that he shared his personal experience with us. The tour shows a difficult part of Cambodia’s history and we were able see and listen to the stories of people who were there. It’s so sad but touching and a very important tour. Highly recommend. Thank you Channak.

He is such an awesome tour guide! I recommend him 100%. For those of you who don’t know or maybe know a little bit about the genocide, he explains the uprising of the Khmer Rouge, during the killing fields, and following up with what makes Cambodia it is today. If you are a history fanatic, you will love him. Book him now!
