Bassac River

The Bassac River is a distributary of the Tonlé Sap and Mekong River. The river starts in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and flows southerly, crossing the border into Vietnam near Chau Doc. In Vietnam it is known as the Hau River (Sông Hậu or Hậu Giang in Vietnamese). The Bassac River is an important transportation corridor between Cambodia and Vietnam, with barges and other crafts plying the waters.

Two bridges span the Bassac: the Monivong Bridge in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and the Cần Thơ Bridge in Cần Thơ in Vietnam.
