The review is longer than usual, but our trip was slightly different so hopefully it will be a worthwhile read. I visited the Bamboo train (also known as Norry) near O’Dambong village on 26/06/14. As mentioned in previous reviews there is a non-negotiable $5 entry...More

What a racket this is. You pay a tuk tuk or motorbike to take you out of town to an old railway station. A 'tourist police' man then tells you 3 facts about the station ... writes down your country, and points you to a...More

Highly recommend going on the bamboo train! When you get there though we had the owner try to make us pay $7 each but it’s actually only $5! If this happens to you just say you know it’s only $5 and then you won’t have...More

Not sure why people are saying it’s a tourist trap . It’s the original old one on the original track . All they have done is fix up the train tracks . It’s great we had the best time. I highly recommend it .

Just ok. A bit of a tourist trap. But hey, the country can always use more tourist revenues. Anyway it was nice to see the countryside, rice fields, and such.

The ride was quite short, and when you stop off for a break at the village it’s just people trying to sell you stuff. The train is more of a cart as well, the rice fields just look like long grass, but it’s pretty fun....More

I last went on the Bamboo train in 2011 and it was just as much fun as I remember. Tickets to ride are $1USD and you travel around 4km past villages and fields. I definitely recommend doing this at least once. I also recommend going...More

This is a replica of the old one. 5 USD per person I thought was a bit rich. We still found this very enjoyable. You go 3 or 4 km to a couple of shops that they own. They go and you hard to buy...More

Quirky and guaranteed fun. A gentle ride on an open cart through the countryside. Is worth it just to experience how they negotiate meeting another cart coming in the opposite direction. Do this. You won’t regret it.
