This was interesting, and i enjoyed the ride, but it was busy the day i went... so their solution was to shorten the trip without reducing the price... $5 for a 5 minute ride each way was a bit steep I think. I think better...More

My family loved the Bamboo train! We heard that it may close soon; this would be a shame for the communities who benefit from the tourism it brings to the area.

Riding the bamboo train, albeit a novelty and tourist attraction, was lots of fun especially when it goes at its top speed! Last about 45 mins from start to finish with a stop at some stalls where you can buy souvenirs and drinks. Our tuk...More

Probably last chance to visit as the new motorway will cut the tracks. Brilliant fun rocketing along dodgy railway tracks on a wooden platform !
