Overview
More
Sri Lanka’s reputation as a destination bursting with variety is back on travellers’ radar: Sri Lanka’s remarkable combination of stunning landscapes, pristine beaches, misty mountains, and captivating cultural heritage is complemented by its compact island location.Thanks to its colonial history (Portuguese, Dutch and British) and interaction with Arab, Chinese and Malay merchants over the centuries, together with the prevailing religions of Buddhism and Hinduism, the island boasts 8 UNESCO World Heritage sites, rich traditions, continual festivities, and exotic cuisine. The British-built broad gauge railway network branching out into all the main regions of the island contain some of the most scenic and dramatic sections of railway to be found anywhere in the world. Riding the rails in Sri Lanka is like stepping back in time. So much of the original colonial era survives and the chance to explore the stunning country and its wondrous railways in a stately private train is a golden opportunity rarely offered.

That is only offered for large groups. Costs like $7,000 to rent the entire thing. Best option is to drive from Colombo to Kandy.
