It was only in the 1970s that Cambodia was under the horrific rule of the Khmer Rouge, a regime that murdered over a million people. The Killing Fields of Choeung Ek is just one of the places that you can visit that will help you get to grips with this tragic past, and while upsetting it is also incredibly poignant. Surrounded by farmland and remarkable peaceful, Choeung Ek, just outside of Phnom Penh is the location of a mass grave for an estimated 20,000 people. Take a moment to reflect at the memorial stupa. Back in Phnom Penh itself, the Tuol Sleng Museum of Genocide went from high school to torture camp, prison and execution centre for those deemed opponents of the revolution – many of the prisoners here were taken to Choeung Ek to be executed.
