Tonle Sap Lake[edit]

Article on a body of water doesn't comply with policy. Some info might useful in other articles for nearby towns. - (WT-en) Cardboardbird 21:03, 11 September 2011 (EDT)

It's a tough one and I remember looking at this when I regionalised Cambodia in 2009. Our policy on bodies of water still confuses me greatly. Massive tomes have been written on this - here for example. I still don't really understand. We have articles about bodies of water that are certainly not regions (if that is the criterion?) but have a "convenient" region template applied (eg Loch Ness). Could do the same for Ton Le Sap. --(WT-en) burmesedays 21:32, 11 September 2011 (EDT)
Comment Tough one indeed. I read the related discussions and I really couldn't decipher anything that even looks like policy. Seems that it could either go as a region, disambiguation page or a straight redirect. From what I understand, Tonle Sap is generally a day trip from Siem Reap for most travellers. Would the Tonle Sap Lake article contain anything travel related that is not already in the SR article? - (WT-en) Cardboardbird 10:18, 14 September 2011 (EDT)
I think this discussion should move to the article's talk page - this one shouldn't be deleted per Project:Deletion policy#Deleting vs. redirecting, so the discussion is about whether it should be redirected, and if so where. -- (WT-en) Ryan • (talk) • 21:49, 25 September 2011 (EDT)
Any objections? Going twice... -- (WT-en) Ryan • (talk) • 20:12, 17 October 2011 (EDT)

It can just be redirected to Cambodia? The bodies of water policy was designed to avoid articles about non-destinations. However, if there are placed where you can sleep on this lake, like at Ha Long Bay, then an article could be justified. --(WT-en) globe-trotter 12:26, 26 October 2011 (EDT)
Converting this to a disambiguation page might make sense. I suspect many people searching for "Tonle Sap" will be looking for information on the floating villages, so if this page presents a "you might be looking for" list with the floating villages and the Cambodia regions that border the lake that might be the most useful. -- (WT-en) Ryan • (talk) • 12:42, 26 October 2011 (EDT)
I think Ryan has good suggestion as having this page as a redirect. There are several places to access the Tonle Sap and I think that the relevant travel information should be listed in those places' articles.(WT-en) Travelpleb 03:15, 1 April 2012 (EDT)
