Chamkamorn District takes us to the Russian Market and Olympic Stadium, and is home to a number of fine temples. However it is best known for the Genocide or Tuol Seng Museum.

This former high school built by the French had been from 1975 to 1979 the prison that was the most terrifying of the Khmer Rouge period. Called "S-21" by the Khmer Rouge, it was a torture center, where 15,000 people were tortured then sent to the extermination camp, Choeung Ek, to be killed. The prison guards were between 10 and 15 years old. They were indoctrinated by the seniors of Angkar, and became crueler than the adults.

We recommend this tour for people 16 years and over, due to the confronting nature of the Genocide Museum. Adults should use their discretion on the ability of their children to deal with this experience.

Olympic Stadium

Your day starts with a short visit to the Olympic Stadium which, while never hosting an Olympic games, is an iconic structure capable of seating 70,000 people.

2

Russian Markets

Continuing on, we visit the Russian Markets, which were named after the 1980s period, when people from Russia were the predominant tourists. This bustling local market is a treasure trove of clothes, art, handicraft, food, and almost anything else you can think of.

We move on from here, taking with us a local snack for morning tea, through the bustling streets of downtown Phnom Penh.

Tuol Sleng - Genocide Museum

It is a somber thought that these bustling streets you are seeing now lead you, like war victims, to the Genocide Museum. Alternatively known as Tuol Sleng Museum, this former school was transformed into a prison and an interrogation center.  It now chronicles this dark chapter of Cambodian history, and is a must-see for those wanting an understanding of this period and what the people suffered through.

3

Svaypope Temple

We finish our tour with a visit to Svaypope Temple, where you will participate in a short Buddhist Ceremony and offering for the lost people of this grim period.

Tipping

Depending on the service, it is customary in Asia to tip service providers, such as waiters, approximately 10%. Though not compulsory, tipping is expected and shows an expression of satisfaction with the people who have assisted you on your holiday. Although it may not be customary to you, it is of considerable significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels. There are several times during the trip where there is an opportunity to tip the local guides or drivers we use. Recommendations for tipping drivers and local guides range from $1.5-$3.5 USD per person, per day, depending on the quality and length of the service. If unsure, ask your local Green Cultural Travel representative.

When selecting your Tour or Activity please read the brochure and itinerary carefully to assess your ability to cope with the requirements of your selected product.

Safety and Security

We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt for keeping your valuables safe. Leave your expensive jewellery at home. You won’t need it while travelling. Many of the hotels you stay at have safety deposit boxes, which is the most secure way of storing your valuables while on tour. 

Protests and Demonstrations- Protests and demonstrations, even those that are well intended, have the potential to turn violent with no warning. Counter protests can also turn violent. Action by security forces to disperse demonstrators and protesters may occur at any time. If you are in an area where demonstrators or protesters are gathering, avoid the temptation of staying for a photo opportunity and leave the area immediately.

Medical Form

As a minimum, an average level of fitness and mobility is required to undertake our easiest programs. Travellers must be able to walk without the aid of another person, climb 3-4 flights of stairs, step on and off small boats, and carry their personal luggage.
