Riding The Rail On Bamboo
Cambodia is a poor country, and the road infrastructure is horrible. Having a moto bike is a luxury. We did manage to rent some personal bikes from a guide which made the trip a whole lot better. He even toured us around and did some local places. It was amazing to say the least.
Riding The Rails
This adventure is very unique to Cambodia, I had read about this in one of those guide books that was popular before the internet. When the opportunity came up when we decided to go to Battambang, I just had to arrange this ride the rail on bamboo deck. They had rules, the bigger the bamboo deck, stays on the rail. I say this is because active trains still roams these rails and other bamboo rigs can be going the opposite directions. Mind you these guys can dismantle the bamboo rigs in minutes. Lucky for us we were bigger than the ones that we encountered, so we did not have to dismantle. Since this adventure was done in 2008, I am not sure if this still exist or did they make it a regular tour now. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried this recently.
