    Don't get ripped off getting to the killing fields

    When you arrive at the airport you will be approached by taxi drivers who will try to rip you off. Remember, you can get a tuk tuk to take you anywhere you want for a full day for 15$, don't pay anything more, you will get offers to take you here or there for 30$ and on up, don't agree, shop around and when in doubt just head to your hotel and grab a tuk tuk for a much cheaper price. The taxi drivers know you are naive to the system fresh off your plane and will try to take advantage

    The memorial and 1 tomb

    Though some might find this visit interesting, I found it to be a waste of time. It is outside PP, you have to get there by motorbike (I paid 3 USD), then you get there and pay 2 USD, and all you get to see is a pile of skulls and some holes on the ground were mass tombs used to be.

    I don't mean to be unrespectful with the many deaths and people that suffered here, but I think that if you wanna learn something about the topic, U better use those dollars in buying a good book on it...

    Besides there is very few shade around and the sun makes the visit even harder...
