The peaceful stretch of green fields at Choeung Ek hide the horrors that occurred at the site in the 1970s. Located 17 kilometers from Phnom Penh, Choeung Ek was made famous in the movie called The Killing Fields. On this 4-hour guided tour you’ll visit the memorial built in memory of the more than 17,000 victims who were killed at Choeung Ek by the Khmer Rouge.

We really enjoyed our guide on this tour. He was extremely knowledgeable and filled in many holes in our understanding of what happened during the genocide as well as surrounding the politics. I would highly recommend this tour of the Killing Fields.

Our guide, Genda, spoke very good English and was very helpful to us in understanding the timeline and events. She was terrific and we would strongly endorse her for any English speaking group.
