Take a sobering step back in time with a visit to Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum.
The former school was transformed into S-21 during the brutal Khmer Rouge and served as a detention and torture centre. Out of an estimated 20,000 prisoners, only seven survived. The rest were tortured and killed or sent to their death at Choeung Ek – the nearby killing field site. Much of the centre has been left as it was discovered in 1979. Many of the torture tools remain, shocking boards of photographs taken of victims as they enter stand in blood-splattered rooms, and the tiny brick cells used to house prisoners remain intact.
You then put your bargaining skills to the test with a trip to the market. Here, you can have fun driving a negotiating with the shopkeepers before you´ll return to your hotel.
Please note that visitors to the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum are required to keep their knees and shoulders covered.
