“I have just returned from doing 2 tours with the same guide - Mekong Discovery and Cu Chi tunnels. Than Truong was excellent and very informative and funny. Even had stops for the "happy place" - toilet. I had studied where we were going but learnt so much more from Than. You can tell he is very passionate about his country and rightly so. Well done Urban Adventures. Lynette NZ”

ITINERARY

Your private Phnom Penh tour starts by learning 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 which served as a Khmer Rouge torture centre. 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 Cambodian.
