Tour Overview

On this personal meeting with Kao Samreth, you’ll learn about how life was like under the Khmer Rouge regime. We will give you a personal account on how the Khmer Rouge destroyed Cambodia.

Rising to power in 1975, The Khmer Rouge (The Red Khmer) killed between 2 and 3 million people. People were starving, overworked, and enslaved. The cities were emptied and everyone was sent to work on farms. After four tortuous years, people were free from the Khmer Rouge. However, a civil war continued and the fighting didn’t stop for nearly 2 decades.

This meeting will give you an insight into how we had to live during these difficult times.

Kao Samreth, your guide from Angkor Pura, will explain his personal experiences during the Khmer Rouge Regime and subsequent civil war. His story was told by the BBC.
