Tonle Sap – Phnom Penh

My last blog update for today, I promise.  I have many more pictures to add this week from my short trip to Phnom Penh.

The photos below are shots of the Tonle Sap from the restaurant where I had breakfast.  The Tonle Sap flows into the Mekong River at this point.

  1. Ah. Technically, that’s the Tonle Sap River joining the Mekong River. The Tonle Sap itself is a ways off from Phnom Penh:

    Which is a good thing–the Tonle Sap can grow to 10x it’s dry season size during the monsoons, which would pretty much wipe out Pnnom Penh. 🙂
