Overview

Learn about atrocities committed during the Khmer Rouge regime on a visit to the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. Tour the harrowing site of a former high school that was converted by Pol Pot into a detention and torture center called Security Prison 21 (S-21). After a sobering look, your half-day itinerary lightens with an exploration at the Russian Market. Hotel transport is provided from Phnom Penh.
  • 4-hour tour of Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and Russian Market
  • Visit Security Prison 21 (S-21) with a guide
  • Learn about the regime of the Khmer Rouge
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off from Phnom Penh

Meet your guide and driver upon hotel pickup in Phnom Penh in the morning or afternoon. Your first stop is the Toul Sleng Museum, where you’ll find paintings and photographs of victims from Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge of the late 1970s — imprisoned, interrogated, and tortured at the notorious Security Prison 21 (S-21). Take a sobering walk around the school-turned-detention center, which exhibits crude cells built in the former classrooms. You’ll also find torture devices used to extract ‘confessions’ that often led to brutal massacres in the infamous ‘Killing Fields.’ 

Please note: Due to graphic images at the Tuol Sleng Museum, this tour is not suitable for young children.

After your visit, take a breather at the Russian Market. You'll have time to spend here browsing the maze of alleys and street stalls teeming with all manner of souvenirs, trinkets, fabrics, statuary, and more. Your guide can help you to purchase snacks, such as sticky rice with banana, outside the domed market. Bottled water and a refreshing towel are provided.

Conclude your 4-hour tour with hotel drop-off at midday or in the evening.
