Sri Lanka, a beautiful little island that lies in the Indian Ocean. Full of culture, religion, delicious food, paradise white sand beaches, waves to surf, tall palm trees, tea plantation, elephants, mountains and valleys. The list goes on and on.
But how do you see all of this?
By train of course.
There’s no better way to see Sri Lanka than by train. It’s so easy and accessible and to navigate as well as extremely easy on the wallet. Which makes Sri Lanka the perfect destination to travel for a budget traveller.
Jump on at any station along the way and enjoy an experience like no other. Sit among the locals and listen to their stories and be welcomed with open arms.
Sit and take in all the views of the coastlines and valleys as the train rickets along the line. If you are feeling adventurous you can hang out of the doors and let the wind flow through your hair.
Train travel in Sri Lanka is an experience in itself and one you should all experience on any trip to Sri Lanka.
If there is one train route you take on your trip then do NOT miss the Ella to Kandy train. Named as one of the most scenic train routes in the world, enjoy views for miles of luscious green tea plantations, valleys, villages hidden in the mountains and impressive bridges.
