The grounds of the Palace are also home to the Silver Pagoda, which received its name because its floor is made of 5,329 silver tiles. Learn about the Khmer kings, resident at all times, with the exception of the period when the Khmer Rouge took control in 1975. See gold and jeweled Buddha statues in the Silver Pagoda, and the Angkor Wat style Bell Tower.
Then, learn about the turbulent years of the Khmer Rouge at the infamous Tuol Sleng Museum. Located in a former high school that was used as the notorious Security Prison 21, the Genocide Museum traces the story of the Killing Fields and the torture and executions that took place from 1975-79. See exhibits that tell the stories of some of the estimated 20,000 prisoners that were killed.

We booked this tour while in Phnom Penh and I do not regret it. My family is from Phnom Penh and barely made it through the genocide. It was helpful to have an English speaking tour guide to provide helpful information regarding each of these places. Our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable regarding all of the tour locations. Just an FYI, women, please bring a sweater or jacket to cover up your shoulders and also your legs (long dresses/skirts are helpful and not too hot). It's our of respect for the culture and traditions.
After reading so much of Khmer Rouge Regime, we decided to see ourselves the destruction during their rule in Cambodia.
