Battambang Bamboo Train

Perhaps Battambang’s most famous tourist attraction, the bamboo trains, or nori, are improvised trains made from bamboo platforms and small motors that run on the disused train lines. Traditionally used by locals to move cargo back when the roads were more difficult to traverse, the bamboo trains are now more often used by tourists. 

Perhaps Battambang’s most famous tourist attraction, the bamboo trains, or nori, are improvised trains made from bamboo platforms and small motors that run on the disused train lines. Traditionally used by locals to move cargo back when the roads were more difficult to traverse, the bamboo trains are now more often used by tourists. The best part about the bamboo train is when two trains face off on one track and the one with the less heavy load is forced to dismantle and let the other one pass. The price should be $10 for an entire nori which can carry four people, but they will try and charge more (and give kickbacks to your tuk tuk driver). Don’t pay more than $5 per person. While this is considered a “must-do” by some, personally we can take it or leave it.
