dc.description.abstract Society’s curiosity with tragedy and death has lead to the increasing trend in dark tourism. This trend has spiked tourism to the Khmer Rouge genocide sites of Cambodia where visitors gather to experience, mourn and learn about the genocide that killed thousands. The country’s unstable past has made it difficult to develop traditional tourism. Despite this, tourists have been traveling to attractions such as Toul Sleng and Cheoung Ek since they accepted visitation in the 1980s. Future predictions suggest that dark tourism will only continue growing and become even more commercialized. en_US
