The following morning after coming to Phnom Penh, we woke up early for a bowl of cu tiu (Cambodian traditional soup) and get ready for the second day in the Kingdom of Cambodia.
My companion and I were arranged to be transported to the dock by tuktuk at the cost included in the prepaid $25.00 ticket/each. From Central Market, the driver took the shortest route Pocheng-Preah Norodom-Chamkrong-Preah Sisovath to bring us directly to the speedboat station where another two staffs of boat company met and guided us to the correct boat.
It’s not much to do after having our luggage to be stored at the rear end of the boat, and finding our seats—if passenger prefers assigned seat inside compartment with dark tinted window or any available space on the roof—which we decided. The boat started at 7:00 AM sharp as printed on ticket.
Having about 25 minutes with nothing to do until departure time, I made some snapshots of the surrounding area and this is one of them, showing sunrise over Chruoy Changvar Peninsula on the east bank of the river. Actually, this is Tonle Sap River at a little more than one mile above the confluence with the Mekong River— the main Cambodian tributary— just off the capital. In Cambodia, the Mekong River is called the Mékôngk or Tonle Thom (great river). Below Phnom Penh, Mekong River divides into the Bassac and the Mekong proper, which both flow into the Mekong Delta in Vietnam.

Beautiful sunrise, i like the orange colour and the silhouette of the boat. I don't understand people who sit inside when there are splendid views outside !!!! Every sunrise is a jewel and people who don't see it are poor people imo.
