Choeung Ek Genocidal Center / Killing Fields Of Pol Pot
Understanding Cambodia's Past
The Choeung Ek Genocidal Center is not the most exciting destination, but it is definitely a necessary one. Even if you are aware of Cambodia's horrific past, you will leave with an entirely new understanding of what happened there. The site is stunning and as you explore the grounds guided by the audio tour, it becomes inconceivable how such a beautiful place could have been the site of such horrors. You will most likely leave in tears, but you will also leave with a better appreciation for the kindness of the Cambodian people that you encounter on your travels.
