Colombo to Kandy Train Ride


Kandy and Colombo are two of the main cities in Sri Lanka. Both cities have a large tourist presence. Kandy having some of Sri Lanka’s major attractions including the sacred Sri Dalada Maligawa is a very busy city. Hence taking the usual traffic filled road can prove tiresome and boring at times. But taking a train from the Colombo Fort Railway Station will prove to be both Time Consuming and a relaxing experience.
