An enjoyable and great fun to spend a few hours away from the cities and shops. Fun experiencing how the assemble and disassemble the car when come across another coming in the opposite direction.

This is something every visitor to Battambang should do at least once. My wife and I happened to be the first passengers for the day I suspect. As we were hurtling down the track in the early morning light, the clickety-clack of the sometimes enormous gaps between the rails send out a rhythmical beat that clears the line of any... More

If you want to ride a train in an open air. This is the best exprience! The locals were very kind. I suggest that you give a tip to the train driver.

If you have the time, you have to take the train. You are placed on a mat, which sits on a set of train wheels powered by a small engine. If, per chance, you meet an oncoming "train" - the one who carries the most stays and the loser has to disassemble their train and allow the larger to pass.... More

As the title says, it was a fun ride, but it is definitely a bit of a tourist trap. It's hard to criticise the hard-sell of the people running the market stalls at the end of the train ride, because tourism is obviously an important source of income, but the bamboo train is what it is.

A very creative bamboo train with only one rail so if you have people coming from the other direction you need to get off and wait aside the rail. The nature is beautiful. Of course it is touristic but it is still fun. At the end they stop at some shops/bar before heading back.

It's a great experience but it's obviously only something tourists do these days. A 20 minute ride, 10 minutes nothing to see but little shops and 20 minutes to get back. At the you have to give your driver a tip on top of the 5 dollar per person entry. Glad we did it but that's it.

Good fun for the family to enjoy. Cost us $5 per person. We just took a tuk tuk there and the driver waited for us to return. The trip took about an hour to return. Remember to take your sun screen and a hat, though you may need to hold onto your hat at times! The families at the end... More

Impressive ride across countryside with nice landscapes. Pleasant for the kids, not worth doing it for adults...

It was neat to ride the quick little bamboo car to the the next "village", but not much to see once there except the sad reliance of locals on tourist money. Fun ride with a sad ending. Not for people with back problems, the ride is very bumpy! Make sure to tip the conductor upon return.
