Ba Chuc is a town only a few kilometres. But it has a very sad history as it was the scene of a war crime committed by the Khmer Rouge in 1978. Over a period of 12 days the Khmer Rouge slaughtered over 3,000 civilians, including children, women, and elderly. It is the Khmer Rouge Killing Field in Vietnam. Today the Ba Chuc Tomb is a memorial site to remember those victims.
It is also sometimes called Ba Chic Crypt. It remembers these innocent victims of this crime – which was part of the genocide the Khmer regime committed in Cambodia.
How to get here
The Ba Chuc Tomb it is located in the border town Ba Chuc, near the Cambodian border. It is along the Road 995B, and off the Q1 Highway that follows the border to Cambodia. Unfortunately, during my visit in 2018 there were no signs for the Crypt – so it can be difficult to find.
