Boat Route to Siem Reap To Reopen on August 15

Riverboat services between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh are scheduled to restart on Aug 15 after closing down in March due to low water levels in the Tonle Sap river, a port official said yesterday. Chieat Thol, deputy director of the administrative department and the Phnom Penh Autonomous Port, said six boat companies will ply the water route and all will use the same port areas in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh.
