Battambang, Cambodia : Bamboo Train

USD$10 if single person, USD$5 if sharing with others. And probably that time gonna be the last time I experience the bamboo train (or the local call it as “noory”) ride as they said the government gonna shut it down for a modern, proper railway and train from somewhere to somewhere to Thailand; of course will go through Battambang.

Honestly nothing much to see along the ride but the experience riding a “train” without any wall on more-than-40-years-old rusty rails, and really loud… wohooo! We stop at small village where kids over there were super friendly but of course they expect for some “tips” by showing us the brick factory, rice factory and others. But rather than give them money which doesn’t help them to go to school, bring some candies and chocolates.
Well, some people in tripadvisor said bamboo train is a tourists trap but for me, Marc and Nike, we kindda like it.
