The Centre was established to provide care for sick animals, most of them endangered species. You will be able to see animals like the sambor deer, macaques, tigers, bears and elephants.
Experience another side of Phnom Penh. The surrounding countryside is everything but what you expect when you come from town. Waving children, smiling people and silence...Stop by for a refreshing drink and dip into the charm of village life!
The Killing Fields
The Cheung Ek genocide museum is located about 15 km outside city centre. This is the location where the Khmer Rouges took their prisoners for execution. There were killing fields all over the country, but Cheung Ek was believed to be the largest. The prisoners were made to wait here to wait 24 hours before they were killed by a blow to the head after which their throats were slit. Babies were killed by bashing their heads against a tree. There were separate graves for men, for women and for children. Former friends of Pol Pot who were executed here had separate graves too.
If you choose to visit, you can walk along 86 mass graves from which the remainders of 8985 men, women and children were unearthed after the liberation of the Khmer Rouges. Some of those skulls, bones and pieces of clothing are now kept in the nearby massive stupa. Every year on the 20th of May a ceremony is held around the stupa to bring peace to the spirits of the deceased.

Taking a passenger on the back:
If you don`t want to drive the quad on your own, you can share the quad with your friend. The quad is big enough for two but please consider that the maximum weight per quad is 130 kg.
Passengers on the back, no matter which age, are charged the half of the tour price.
So if you want to book the tour for two persons sharing a quad, please book one "adult" and one "child" to get the correct rate.
You can bring anything you think that can be useful for the children who live in the villages: clothes, toys, books, color pencils, soaps… (old or new) and we will distribute it on the way.
But please, never give money to the children!
