Battambang’s Bamboo Train Halted for Major Renovations

Dear valued partners and friends

We regret to inform you that the famous Bamboo Train in Battambang, Cambodia will seize operation for a period of approximately 6 months for major renovations, effective immediately. According to the authorities, the replacement of the complete railway with a new track is required. Unfortunately, the exact relaunch date of operating bamboo train rides aboard Cambodia’s ‘Noories’ remains uncertain.

Asian Trails Cambodia regrets to inform all concerned about this inconvenience at this stage and will discuss with partners about finding suitable program alternatives. We will keep you appraised one we receive final confirmation of including bamboo train rides in Battambang.

For more information and alternative program suggestions, please contact our customer service team via

Kind regards

About the Bamboo Train
Noories are not only functional for those residing in and around Battambang; they are an institutional means of transportation that are fun-filled too! Ubiquitously connected with one of Cambodia’s largest towns, bamboo train tracks bring travels from A to B over rickety tracks aboard a completely open ‘cabin’ with speeds reaching up to 15 kilometres per hour are a must-try when around…even if you are going into the opposite direction of your itinerary.
