Take the world's most beautiful train line, "hang the train" to go to the tea garden!


The train in Sri Lanka is still a retro steam train from the British colonial era, passing from the Kandy to Nuwara Eliya section through the famous Ceylon tea producing area and The Little England district, along with the seaside route from Galle to Colombo, is known as the world's most beautiful train route and is also the most attractive travel experience in Sri Lanka.

Kanti Railway Station has a long history. It has been built since the British colonial period and has received travelers from all over the world. The time of the trains in the station is still a very traditional hand dial. Oh, the first time I saw the flowers, I feel very special~

Because it is an old-fashioned steam train, plus more sites The stations are different, so the trains may not be able to enter the station on time. Generally, there will be slight delays. The flowers arrived in the waiting area in advance, and it was good to go around and take pictures.

After a while, the train will come ""~~ The train is old and the car layout is very simple and simple. After the car boarded the car, I found a few empty cars and found the empty position. ~

From Kang to Nuwara Eliya, the journey takes about 3.5 hours, passing through the scenic Alpine Tea Garden, so there are many travelers in addition to the Sri Lankan people. There will be local people in the car to go back and forth to sell small snacks, usually 100 pesos will have a small bag.

The train speed is not fast. When driving, the door will not close. Many couples sit on the door directly after getting on the bus. They are all the way to the show, and every moment is a movie poster picture.

In addition to Xiu Enai, hanging the train is also one of the common actions of local people taking the train. They are often seen in the promotional videos and promotional photos in Sri Lanka. They are like a hanging train. The Warriors got into the mountains with the train and integrated into the tea garden~~ But for safety, the flowers are not recommended for adventurers, so take a photo when you stop, feel the natural atmosphere at a close distance~~

The stations along the train have their own style, and the details are full of life and tranquility.

There are often rain and fog in the high mountains of Sri Lanka. The old trains are slow and long, and they walk through the lush tea gardens from time to time. From time to time, they pass through caves, villages, small rivers, waterfalls and look out the window. Every moment is like The dream is average.

The green tea gardens, occasionally seeing some tea-picking women busy in it, will not be disturbed by trains.

tips:
Although many locals will hang the train or sit in the door without the door, but for safety, it is not recommended to hang the train while the train is driving, etc. Stop and shoot again :)
