The country borders Thailand to its west and northwest, Laos to its northeast, and Vietnam to its east and southeast. In the south it faces the Gulf of Thailand. The geography of Cambodia is dominated by the Mekong river (colloquial Khmer: Tonle Thom or “the great river”) and the Tonle Sap (“the fresh water lake”), an important source of fish. Its culture is heavily influenced by Thailand and Laos.
