Reasons for trip

This is a very, very rustic experience…somewhere near Batambang in Cambodia; impossible to give any more details about it’s locality.

It is the most fun you can have as a grown up, makes you feel like a child again, you want to laugh out loud!

The “train” is a bamboo platform on wheels; you literally just sit on a cushion on this platform with nothing to stop you falling off except your will-power not to. Then you race off down a single track through the countryside, going over little rivers and through jungle.

When you meet a “train” coming in the opposite direction one of the trains has to be dismantled and taken off the track.

It is not really suitable for people with bad backs (no support for your back at all…no support for anything) or mobility problems.

A brilliant experience for “children” of all ages…I experienced this as a “child” of 69.
