Spent this morning at the Choeung Ek killing fields
site. I used the audio tour for the first time and thoroughly recommend it for all visitors. It's excellent and provides a much deeper understanding of what took place than any tour guide can provide in the same amount of time. You can dip in and out of it as you wish, do the walking tour in the order you want to or simply skip over the bits that aren't as important to you. My tip, listen to it all, it takes an hour and is well worth it. Admission, with the audio tour in the language of your choice, costs $5. There were a few hundred people there but with most listening to their headsets, it was as quiet as a mouse.
The Cambodian Space Project have brought forward by a day, their upcoming Celebrating Cambodia's Vinyl Era at La Croisette, and will now perform on Thursday 31 January rather than 1 February, when all the bars will be closed and party celebrations will be cancelled out of respect for the funeral and cremation of the King Father at the beginning of the month.
