I love a train trip, and one of the greats is the trip from Galle to Colombo. The train hugs the coast most of the way, so you get a great taste of the landscape and villages. The bonus is that it is the most wonderful people watching, getting to know people – if that is your want – way to travel.
Hawkers move through the train selling snacks and lottery tickets. The interiors of these trains, with there worn leather seats and primary colour interiors are of another time and place. It takes about 3 hours to 4 hours … but who cares….hang your head out the window and breath in the smells of Sri Lanka.
