The world`s most beautiful train trip ella kandy

Taking the train is the most comfortable way to travel in my opinion. You can walk around whenever you want, go to the toilet, have some food, meet other travelers and locals, read, listen to music, relax and watch the landscape go peacefully by. Taking the train is a great way to see Sri Lanka! It is also cheap and safe! The train trip from Ella to Kandy, in Sri Lanka, is supposed to be one of the most scenic and beautiful journeys in the world. We totally agree!

Galle was the second city we visited in Sri Lanka, after a few days in the capital Colombo.

The small city Galle is really lovely and peaceful, full of colour and texture. We totally fell in love with Galle!

Our third day at Tangalla started as normal on the beach, us laying flat out relaxing, reading and listening to music. All of a sudden a man came running shouting “Come and see, come and see!!! Hurry!!”. First we just thought he was a seller selling fruits or souvenirs, so we pretended to be asleep. But the man kept on shouting, so we stood up and followed him a few meter along the beach, and we are so glad we did!
