Tonle Sap Flood Plain:
Tonle Sap Lake is the largest lake in Southeast Asia with an enormous floodplain that is seasonally inundated by monsoon rains. A part of the Mekong River drainage, it is essentially a freshwater inland sea which varies in size from 2,500 sq. km, (1,000 sq. mi.) to over 16,000 sq. km. (6,000 sq. mi.). As the Nile was to ancient Egypt, this lake, floodplain, and its ecosystem supported the ancient Angkorean civilization - the largest pre-industrial settlement complex in world history. Designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1997, it contains by far the richest diversity of birds in Cambodia. The monsoon season in Cambodia generally peaks from September to early October.
