A really good time - the train moves very fast and it felt like a very unique experience. My friend and I shared a train with a Burmese man and it was lovely. The train takes you to a small village full of children that will run after you to get you to buy bracelets. We weren't quite expecting this... More

With not a lot to do in Battambang we hired a tuk tuk to take us around for the day. We visited the well of shadows which was interesting and went to the bamboo train. It lasts for an hour and is quite a bumpy track. It's nice to go through and look out on the countryside and it didn't... More

This was a good fun thing to do from Battambang & kids would love it. The train actually gets up quite a bit of speed if there is no one in front of you. The tracks a bit wonky too which makes it a bit more hair raising! Hold on tight & don't wear a hat.

My husband and I had a trip on the Bamboo train as part of our Kuoni trip. We were joined by 5 young boys who couldn't go to school that day because there teacher had not shown up. The train reaches about 30mph and its super fun, scary but fun! We reached a nice little village at the end which... More

Such great fun and friendly people enjoyed this experience. People work hard putting the train together on the tracks with tipping then for their hard work. Great fun.

this is the way people used to bring their goods to market. It is wild, and wonderful, as well as historic. Not for the faint of heart, as these little buggies really pick up speed. You get out into the real countryside, and you dont have to worry about mines cuz you dont step foot much off the train track... More

I went there with some of my friends, the bamboo train driver gave us a big smile and we knew that we going had some fun. It was kind of crazy speed on a flat bamboo but we really had a good fun riding it. Highly recommend

My wife, son and I had a fun experience on the bamboo train. Not many places where you can sit on a thin platform made from bamboo resting on 2 axles and zip through the Cambodian countryside breaking about every safety rule possible. The ride is a bit rough, but candidly it is worth doing. There is a single set... More
