Cambodia's creaky, funky bamboo trains: like riding 'a bat'


Cool. I remember seeing these on Long Way Down. Man, I wish there was a third one of those.

In other news related to transit in Cambodia, Phnom Penh is experimenting with its first public buses.

San Cipriano, Colombia, is only able to be accessed by a similar mode of transport. Locals use hacked together carts powered by motorcycles to whiz along the tracks. The difference to Cambodia is that the rail lines are still in use, and locals use the single track as a two direction track, so you never know what’s coming around the corner!


“The railway never recovered from the horrors of Khmer Rouge murder and war decades ago.”…and years of US carpet bombing. They forgot that bit. Easy to do I know.
