“Thanks to NEC’s Phnom Penh commune election result list, we  finally have the official communes forming Phnom Penh’s recently created 9th district, as well as the exact communes added to the other districts forming the edge of the capital. (red/pink = Meanchey; gray/green = Russei Keo; brown = Sen Sok; dark blue = Po Senchey; lime = Dangkao).”

Area based former Phnom Penh boundaries: 380.760 km2

Area based on latest Phnom Penh boundaries: 693.552 km2 

 

Boundaries as shown in the BAU Master Plan 2005.
