Right across the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh on the riverside is where the Mighty Mekong River and the Tonle Sap merge giving birth to the smaller Bassac River. Also in this location lies a floating fishing community that relies on this rich waters for their livelihood.
Since the ancient times – and up to this day – the Tonle Sap and Mekong River have enormous supply of fish and other aquatic resources. In the ancient times, they also served as naval battleground between the great Khmer empire and its enemies.
These days, tourists rent boats to cruise along the rivers. To cap the river cruise is the splendid sunset that is best viewed in this location.
