The ride was quite nice. There are green bushes along the tracks with heaps of butterflies fluttering around. Every now and then you get glimpses of green rice paddy fields. It was a warm day but once the train picks up speed, the breeze helps.
It is interesting when there are two 'trains' coming from opposite sides. The train with the lesser number of passengers gets off the track.
At the other end, there were few souvenir stalls.The owners asked us to buy things a couple of times but stopped once we politely said no. We had fun chatting with some little girls selling friendship bands who had really good English.
Our Tuk Tuk driver said the whole business is community owned. I'm not sure if it is 100% true. We tipped the driver with couple of dollars at the end.
- I would not recommend it if you have a bad back. It gets bumpy.
- Take a hat (otherwise you can buy hats at the place as well, not nice ones though).
- Lots of sunscreen and plenty of water to remain hydrated.
