This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Tonle ferry

Post by chiltern » Sat Apr 09, 2016 5:55 pm

years ago there was a regular passenger ferry that used to run from the Riverside across the Tonle Sap not that when you got there there was much to do but times have changed now the twinkling lights look very enticing from the Riverside and you would have thought that a regular ferry service would prove popular in the evenings. I am sure that many people have thought the same and can only assume that some petty regulation is preventing this
