Despite all the TA reviews about the hard sell at the end of the line (before the return), we didn't find that, in comparison to Siem Reap, where we had been that morning, bad at all. The little kids are adorable and make you grass bracelets, grass crickets and anything else out of the grass that you might want. They'll also take you to see the brick factory. We had a nice chat with a couple of the sellers and enjoyed one cold soda and then headed back. Only one mention to tip the driver at the very end. Very unique and once-in-a-lifetime experience for $5 pp and under an hour out of your life. If they were to cut down the foliage on both sides of the tracks, there'd be much more Cambodian countryside to enjoy, but maybe there's a very good reason that they need to maintain it the way they do.

My girlfriend and I went on the bamboo train today and had a great time.
At first we were a little apprehensive but we soon became comfortable!
The sights are great and it's a brilliant experience!!
A must do in Battembang! :-)

While in Battambang you should really add this attraction to your itinerary. For $5 its a bit of fun and you might be let drive. The little children at the halfway point are lovely n they can do amazing things with banana leaves....
