  • No busloads of tourists here, just a handful of very sombre Europeans absorbing the horrors of landmines and Cambodia's continuing problems. 
  • We went to Cambodia Landmine Museum from Siem Reap on a Tuk Tuk and enjoyed the journey through local villages. Such a disturbing history but a must see. 
  • In talking about the civil war in Cambodia have mine now. Is with the description as well as the real mine (the guy that you processing). I think I turned the study of history. Go to the ruins of Banteay SREI is a bit away from the city, so I think when you go together with.

  • Informative, shocking, and touching. A couple of quotes: “Cambodia is one of the most heavily mined areas in the world; some estimates run as high as ten million mines (in a country of 11.5 million people), though the Cambodian Mine Action Center (CMAC) estimates 4 to 6 million mines. Cambodia is also littered with other kinds of unexploded ordinance (UXO), left over from half a million tons of bombs dropped on Cambodia by the United States in the late 60s and early 70s. The figures here are not known, though there is an estimated “dud” rate of 10 percent for UXO (Cambodia Daily website). There are many different kinds of bombs and mines: US material from the “Vietnam” war era, and Chinese, Soviet and eastern block made materials left from the Khmer Rouge era in the 1970s and a decade of civil war that followed in the 1980s.” “The Cambodia Mine/Unexploded Ordnance Victim Information System reported at least 64,017 landmine and unexploded ordnance casualties from 1979 to the end of 2011. Of these, 19,619 people were killed and 44,398 injured.”
  • Our tour was given by a Vietnam vet that helps run the place. Very amazing work being done here, helping clean up the aftermath of bloody wars in the region.
  • Hidden pearl very close northly of Angkor. Very impressive, ask your driver to find out
  • Small but very emotional museum, you get to realize the tragedy of landmines and unexploded bombs in Cambodia. One Cambodian out of 300 has been wounded by these...
  • Eye opening and educational. Tells of a serious issue that is still very present in Cambodia today. Worth a visit and can be combined with Banteay Srey.
