Start off the day by learning about the tragic and fascinating recent history of Cambodia. See the location where journalists camped out in 1975 on the eve of the Khmer Rouge takeover, and the ghostly building that has been left burnt-out and bullet-holed as it stood after the war. Take a guided tour of the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, a former school which served as torture headquarters of the Khmer Rouge. Then head to the Choueng Ek Memorial, where 8,000 human skulls mark the site of the infamous Killing Fields. At the end of the day, try some interesting Khmer snacks and hear about how recent history and politics continue to affect the lives of average Cambodians.
