I really enjoyed this. Made me fell like Indiana Jones. It really zips along too, much faster than I thought it was going to be. There's a little village at the end selling drinks and touristy bits and pieces which was also fun. When you meet someone coming the other way one of you has to remove their train from... More

It was a must do experience when in Battambang and provided a good view of the country side but was overpriced for what you get especially when your asked to give a tip to the driver afterwards.

This was the highlight for me in Battambang as after coming from Siem reap, Battambang seems very chilled. You get the see the countryside and the ride is about an hour there and back. They stop you at one end where there are a few stalls of the usual tourist items you may wish to buy. One recommendation, wear a... More

We had such a fun time! It is a great way to interact with the locals and see Cambodian countryside in a fresh and exciting way. Everything was so green and beautiful. The track is old and not perfectly aligned, but the bumpy ride was half the fun! There is time to stop and shop at the end before the... More

What can I say? Health and safety. What health and safety! Perched on cushions on a bamboo raft on wheels powered by a lawnmower engine, hurtling along the rickety old tracks of the disused Battambang- Phnom Penh railway, through jungly bits and past paddy fields. Nothing to hold onto, no straps, nothing. Once at your destination about 25 mins ride... More

An activity that is really unique: Tired of temples, ruins, caves and boat rides? The bamboo train probably has no equivalent in Asia, on a big platform, you just race along a straight track. Consider bringing ear plugs, it is pretty loud.

This was really an afterthought... just decided to take my nephew on it, not expecting much.... but it was superb... travelling at 20mph through the cambodian countryside at Sunset was magical... we were the only foreigners on it... apparently it's closing this year... it was stunning...

I loved it, great fun. Accept it for what it is. Locals making a living by using what they have! So to all the moaners... If you can't sit cross legged for say 20 mins. Be prepared to get on and off a fee times. Stop for 20 mins and manage not to buy anything if you don't want anything... More

Riding on the Bamboo Train brings a lot of fun. Sure, it is just for the tourists, but be grateful! Otherwise we could not have seen this old train, which they used for transportation years ago! It was interesting to see and a good experience as well :-)
