Mekong Plain & Phnom Penh City

After the Fall of Angkor in 1435, the Kingdom’s Capital City was moved to different sites, from Angkor to Longvèk, from Longvèk to Oudong, and finally, at the turn of the 20th century from Oudong to present-day Phnom Penh, at the auspicious location of the “Four Arms of the Mighty Mekong” by the Mekong Plain also known as Chatomuk (Four faces) River or “Les Quatre-Bras” (Four arms) of the Upper and lower Mekong, the Tonlé Sap and the Bassac Rivers. The site is the siege of a unique phenomenon in the world, the “Reversal” of the Waters of the Tonlé Sap River occurring twice a year in July and November when the Water Festival is being celebrated.
