It's a must. Super cute and picturesque like something out of a children's book. Beware, double check the dates on your train ticket.

A train station seems like an odd tourist attraction but Ella train station truly is something worth seeing. It is very a quaint and charming building! Sri Lankan train journeys a notoriously beautiful and catching a train from here is well worth it!

We caught the train from Ella through the tea country. This is a quaint little railway station with lots of character. Lots of car parking there too and quite close to the Ella township

The old Colonial Railway Station has now been undated with more space for travellers to embark and disembark. Prominent spot in the Ella Town
