Many think Phnom Penh sits on the Mekong River, but it doesn’t. The murky brown water you see swirling in front of the riverside boulevard is in fact the Bassac River, which flows up to fill the Tonle Sap (the Mekong is the far river, on the other side of the island you can see). When the river is high, as Tonle Sap fills, the river goes mad with fishermen.
