091106HDR Banan Temple, Battambang. It looks a bit blurry as the three shots with different exposure were taken without a tripod. Probably there is a better process to render it. I just simply do not know how-to.

Norry is very well advertised both in guidebooks and at hotels or guesthouses frequented 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 a few years from now.

It is faster than I thought. The driver said there are failures sometime. No guarantee.
