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 which 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. Additional Information Dress standards are conservative throughout Asia, especially outside major cities. To respect this and for your own comfort, we strongly recommend modest clothing. This means clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in the predominantly hot Asian climate. For most of the year it is hot in Cambodia. Please keep rehydrated and bring sunscreen and a hat to protect you from the sun. From time to time Cambodia authorities close sites temporarily for restoration or during Buddhist and other holidays. In the unlikely event that this occurs, alternate arrangements will be made with the client. The Royal Palace grounds may be closed on important Khmer holidays for part or all of the day, and as such the order of visiting different sites may change in order to accommodate this. In the rare event that the palace grounds are closed for the entire day, an alternate activity of the same value will be provided. Participant restrictions Children must be 6 years of age or older. Please note that the content of the tour is more suitable for older children. Policies This tour is offered on a "join-in" basis. Maximum group size is 12.
