The Bamboo Railway is a must do fun adventure. With no trains running the entrepreneurial locals now use home maid carriages on the old lines to move goods (and tourists) from village to village.
Costing $5 a passenger, you sit on a bed of bamboo and career along the bumpy rails for about 20 minutes. Although the time taken varies, as, if you meet a carriage coming towards you (it’s a single track) then you have to get off, dismantle train, let them pass then re-assemble and continue on.
At the terminus there are the usual souvenir sellers, but behind them is a fascinating old brickwork still molding and firing using methods hundreds of years old, in large brick kilns.
