ROUTE DESCRIPTION

The Tonlé Sap Lake and an attached river, the 120 km (75 mi) long Tonlé Sap River, that connects the lake to the Mekong. They form the central part of a complex hydrological system, situated in the 12,876 km2 (4,971 sq mi) Cambodian floodplain covered with a mosaic of natural and agricultural habitats that the Mekong replenishes with water and sediments annually. The central plain formation is the result of millions of years of Mekong alluvial deposition and discharge. The swollen Mekong backs up into the Tonle Sap at the point where the rivers meet at Chaktomuk, forcing the waters of the Tonle Sap River back into the lake.



Along the banks of the Tonle Sap at its jucntion with The Mekong is the area known as Sisowath Quay. This is where a lot of bars and restaurants for bisitors are based many with balconies and terraccs overlooking the riveer. On the other side of the road along the river banks is a grassy area where lots of Cambodians meet for picnics or other family gatherings.



The Royal Palace, Including the two magnificent pagodas in the Palace Grounds, the Silver Pagoda and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. The Royal Palace was designed by architect Neak Oknha Thepnimith. The Royal Palace was made when Cambodia was still part of the French protectorate.
