Trains, beaches
& curry with rice

Perched just above the equator, balmy, tropical Sri Lanka is a lush tropical paradise. Often overlooked by tourists, this small island packs a punch when it comes to travel experiences.

Recently divided by war, Sri Lankans are surprisingly friendly and welcoming. The charm of Sri Lanka was no more obvious than on their fantastic train rides. Apart from the delightful quaintness, a train journey in Sri Lanka takes you through some of the most beautiful landscapes you’ll find anywhere. But to really get a taste for Sri Lanka, you can’t go past their fantastic food: cheap, tasty and effortless. Much like Sri Lanka itself.
