This single track railway apparently runs all the way to Thailand ! We rode it 7kms to a n. Old brick factory and back . Yo u sit on an exposed platform and get off if you meet someone coming in the opposite direction , they take the platform and the running wheels of , let the other party pass... More

The Bamboo train in Battambang is a little bit of a thrill in what otherwise is a more laid back, uneventful town after being in Siem Reap. It's not far by Tuk Tuk to the bamboo train, which is bamboo slats on wheels powered by what looked like a lawn mower engine to hurl it along the bumpy and not-so-straight... More

You're greeted by a "policeman" who takes your money and appoints you a driver. Our poor driver had to give way to every single "carriage" coming the opposite way which meant disassembly the matt and two sets of wheels and us standing in the bush on the side awaiting other "trains". At the end expect to be doggedly pestered to... More

I get why people go - but having listened to those reasons, wish I hadn't. This is a ONE-WAY rail track with little platforms on top of wheels. Which means any time there is a car coming in the opposite direction, everyone on one of the cars has to bail to the side of the track, often in quite deep... More

Train is a little bit of an overstatement, it's two axles, a bamboo platform and a small engine - but ingenious and great fun for an hour. Apparently the plan is to replace the track and run a proper rail service in December 2016, so the bamboo train may stop soon. You feel like you're rocketing along the twisted rails,... More

It's an unusual experience, I wouldn't say it's a must do, however if your close by then give it a go. It's interesting to see how the use and operate the little bamboo trains. And it's a nice experience to ride fast along the track. The negatives would be, they pester you to give a tip to the driver, 3... More

I wouldn't go to Battambang just to do the bamboo train, but I did it as part of a bike tour with Battambang Bike which was definitely a five-star experience. You sit on a bamboo platform powered by a motorcycle motor. There's only one track so when you meet another car you have to get up while the drivers take... More
