star-5
237 Reviews
Free admission

A 60-foot (20-meter) tall Angkor-style monument built in 1958, the Phnom Penh Independence Monument was constructed to commemorate the Cambodians winning back their independence from the French in 1953. Renowned Cambodian architect Vann Molyvann designed the monument; the architecture is patterned after a lotus flower and adorned with five levels of Naga heads, which gives it a very distinctive look. Located in the heart of busy Phnom Penh, the Independence Monument attracts many visitors, not only for its unique architecture, but also for its location: it’s in the middle of a busy intersection and the eastern side features a large, open park that is a popular spot for locals to gather and jog or practice tai chi and aerobics.

More than just a monument commemorating Cambodia’s independence, it also serves as a memorial to Cambodia’s war casualties and is a symbol of the end of Cambodia’s war. In remembrance, families place large wreaths at the foot of the monument for war veterans. At night, the monument is illuminated by red, blue and white floodlights, the colors of the Cambodian flag. It’s also the site of celebrations and services on holidays such as Independence (January 7) and Constitution Day (September 24).

Phnom Penh Killing Fields Private Guided Half Day Tour

Phnom Penh Killing Fields Private Guided Half Day Tour

The Killing Fields will bring you face-to-face with the brutal reality of the Khmer Rouge period. It was a death camp where the Khmer Rouge killed around 17,000 of their own people. Most of the victims were also prisoners of Tuol Seng, the former high school, which was transformed into a prison and place of torture. The Killing Fields is located 15km to the south-west of Phnom Penh, and allows you to glimpse into the horrors of this dark chapter of Cambodia’s history. We finish this tour with a cleansing ceremony at a local temple to honor those lost. We recommend this tour for people aged 16 years and over, due to the confronting nature of the Killing Fields. Adults should use their discretion on the ability of their children to deal with this experience.
