The stories and history shared at the Killing Fields and S21 are confronting and many travellers will find them upsetting. This is an important part of Cambodia’s recent history that we feel is important for travellers to know.

Some further information on visiting the Killing Fields can be found here: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/adventures/importance-visiting-cambodia-k...

It was the best tour, with a really knowledgeable and warm tour guide – a good exposure to the country, its people, culture, religion and history. What I didn’t expect was how much more I would be taken by the spirit and generosity of the people than the monuments themselves.

Amazing trip. The best of Cambodia lived up to its name. I had been looking forward to visiting Angkor Wat for many years and it did not disappoint. However this trip also taught me there is so much more to see and do. Other particular highlights of the trip included cycling in Battembang, the Sambor Prei Kuk temples and the island boat trip. Eating a tarantula was pretty memorable too.
