Petit Futé's opinion on BAMBOO TRAIN

Plate millesim 2022

Originally, the railway was in such poor condition that for years the inhabitants converted and invested it. Every day, large bamboo plateaus (2.5 m x 4 m) equipped with a small engine made round trips over a distance of about 6 km, carrying passengers, goods and tourists! But with the Bangkok-Saigon railway line project, the line was rehabilitated (it seems...) As this was one of Battambang's flagship activities, the city authorities opened a new draisine line. Obviously less authentic than at the time, the experience remains quite pleasant. Go there preferably at sunset (4:30pm/17pm). At the end, we can visit a brick factory and drink a soda and... we go back the other way. On the way, it is possible to observe the daily life of the villages, for which the opening of this secondary line has meant a real opening up.

Très touristique mais permet de réaliser ce qu’était le transport du riz avant les camions et surtout l’esprit pratique des cambodgiens.

Attention : le bamboo train n'existe plus. La voie ferrée est en cours de réfection pour relancer la liaison Phnom Pen - Battambang en train.

une autre façon de se déplacer sur ces draisines faites de bambous. Ces plate-formes permettent aux gens de se déplacer sur la voie ferrée unique et obligent, lors d'un croisement avec un autre wagon, à céder la place au plus chargé. Démontage et remontage du wagon assurés plusieurs fois pendant le trajet. A découvrir, même si au bout du chemin de charmants vendeurs ou vendeuses vous solliciteront pour acheter quelques tee-shirts.

Simple support en bambou posé sur deux roue de train tracter par un vieux moteur sur une vieux chemin de fer... C'est génial!
Ces petits moyen de transport vous transporterons d'un village a l'autre. 1h aller-retour!
Vous verrez de magnifique paysage, des animaux.
Arrivé au deuxième village il faut faire demi-tour!
Un petit billet vous sera demander pour le chauffeur!
A faire absolument, meilleur attraction a battambang!
