What to expect

Spend some time delving into Phnom Penh's past. It's dark but essential to understanding the Cambodia of today. Join this Phnom Penh tour to visit the somber spots made infamous by the Khmer Rouge and learn about the politics that continue to shape this country.

Your tour will start at the National Museum of Phnom Penhyour day where you'll learn about the tragic and fascinating recent history of Cambodia. See the location where journalists camped out in 1975 on the eve of the Khmer Rouge takeover, and the ghostly building that has been left burnt-out and bullet-holed as it stood after the war.

Confront Cambodia's tragic past, on a guided tour of the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, a former school that served as a Khmer Rouge torture center. Then head out of the city to the Choueng Ek Memorial, where a pagoda made up of some 8,000 human skulls marks the site of one of the infamous Killing Fields. Finish by sampling some interesting Khmer snacks and exploring how this recent history and politics continue to affect the lives of average Cambodians.
