The Top 20 Most Scenic (And Affordable) Rail Journeys
Slide Nr 14
Sri Lanka – There is no luxury train, per se, in Sri Lanka, although the beautiful route to the so-called ”Tea Country“ has operated individual luxury cars, on and off, in the past. Trains make their way from capital city Colombo to Kandy and from there on to Ella, climbing steadily through lush green hills, tea plantations and picturesque colonial towns. There are many different trains running on this route, ranging from dirt-cheap, rickety daytime trains or sleeper services to comfortable, air-conditioned cars on some trains, open-air or enclosed observation cars on others, so make sure you book the train that best suits your requirements.
