The Killing Fields at Choeung Ek

When in Phnom Penh, make sure to visit Choeung Ek, which is one of many horrifying Killing Fields in Cambodia. The Cambodia genocide, headed by the Khmer Rouges leader Pol Pot, is thought to have killed over 2 million people over a 4 year period – in a country with a population of only 8 million. A visit here is a must.
