Phnom Penh Unearthed is a fascinating yet heartbreaking tour. Exploring the bloody history of Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge, the tour takes you directly to the spots where many brutal atrocities where committed.

The first part of the tour is a visit to the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. Previously a children’s high school, this building was seized by the Khmer Rouge in 1975. It soon became the regime’s largest centre of detention and torture in the country.

The museum is full of photographic displays of the prisoners. As you wander from image to image you will be confronted with the faces of those who died, and the dreadful conditions in which they were kept. It is a very sobering experience.

After leaving Tuol Sleng you will be guided to the Choueng Ek Memorial, where a Buddhist stupa containing around 8000 skulls marks the site of one of the notorious Killing Fields. Here you can take some time to pay tribute to the thousands of Cambodians that lost their lives during the Khmer Rouge.

Delving into Cambodia’s cruel history is a harrowing experience, but it is also essential for those that want a true understanding of this beautiful country and its resilient people.

Good to know Dress standard: 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 predominately hot Asian climate.

Visitors to the Royal Palace must wear shorts or skirts that are knee-length or below, shirt sleeves that reach the elbow or longer, and sandals or shoes (no flip flops). Otherwise, they will be required to rent appropriate covering.

Child Policy: Children between the ages of 6 and 11 inclusively are permitted on this tour at the rate listed above. Please select ‘child’ above when booking. Children below the age of 6 are not permitted on this tour. Please note that the content of the trip is more suitable to older children.

Closure: 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.
