The  Forest Ocean located in Sen Monorom City of Mondulkiri Province.  It is called the forest ocean because of the trees growing on the mountain create an image lkie the wave of sea. This is why people called it Samot Chheur or The Forest Ocean.

Norry- Bamboo Train of Cambodia at Battambang

Norry- Bamboo Train of Cambodia

Norry is very well advertised both in guidebooks and at hotels or guesthouses visited often by tourists. It is even included in the top ten experiences highlighted by well-loved Lonely Planet, and was my last experience amongst the ten. An approximate one hour ride can cause you about 15 bucks per lorry if you are a tourist. Khmers will receive some discount, 8 dollars in my case. Since it became a big tourism draw in Battambang, I guess the locals can generate pretty good incomes from the service. If the project to bring back Cambodia train is on tracks, this service will come to an end in this year.
