Tour Detail

What To Expect

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Bamboo Train Battambang, Krong Battambang, Cambodia

Take a ride on the traditional Bamboo Train, a bamboo platform laid over 2 sets of wheels on a single track. In the old days this was used to transport goods between Battambang and Phnom Penh and was a typical mode of transport for farmers and villagers. Today, it takes you through the beautiful countryside to a little village you can explore on foot before returning to your starting point.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Wat Banan Temple, Banan Hill Address: 118 Street 3, Battambang 02360, Cambodia, Battambang 02000 Cambodia

Climb the 365 stairs to marvel at Wat Banan, an Angkor era temple which sits on top of a hill close to the Sanker river. Banan is seldom frequented by tourists and outside of Cambodian holidays it is likely that you may be the only visitor.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: The Killing Cave, Phnom Sampov, Cambodia

The Killing Caves of Phnom Sampeau (also known as Phnom Sampov) are a place of beauty, turned tragedy, turned beauty once more. Take a truck up the steep incline to the starting point and descend into the cave with your guide, who will brings the tragic history of this place to life. Stop along the way to experience the stunning views across the valley below.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Phnom Sampeau, 57 Off NH, Battambang 02000 Cambodia

Scale the side of a mountain leading to the 'secret bat cave' just before sunset where you will sit atop the mountain waiting for the millions of bats located inside the cave to awake. Marvel as this seemingly never-ending stream of fruit bats fly out of the cave and off into the countryside for their evening meal.

We rode the bamboo train today and what an incredible experience it was! It was amazing to see how Cambodians used to travel before the evolution of trains today and they go pretty fast too which is cool!

Really lovely jaunt on a little carriage out into the jungle to buy some more bracelets. Hard working people as ever. Buy an old few bracelets for a dollar or a bottle of water, tip the driver and enjoy some magnificent country whilst getting a ferocious tan on the front of your legs only.

This was an amazing and one in a lifetime experience. Everyone visiting Battambang should definitely try the Bamboo Train. You get to see the nature and meet the locals and experience an open air train

Great fun. Simple and effective. Real eye opener and an enjoyable trip on basically a plank of wood on wheels!
