Breathtaking diversity of landscapes and cultures come together.
Gorgeous mountains and stunning trails, beautiful surfing beaches, desert, rainforest.. You name it. This country will have you hanging off the edge of the train and feeling free as a bird. The food is incredible, the people are kind, and the wildlife is everywhere you go. This is one of the best places I’ve found to explore. The tea fields line the railroads creating a peaceful backdrop no matter where you’re headed.
Why here? The trains are amazing!
Sri Lanka is another warm climate that has a little bit of everything. It’s cost effective and everywhere I’ve been has access to amazing food (assuming you like curry). One thing they have here is amazing wildlife tours for elephants, leopards, sloth bears, and tons of bird varieites. Oh, and a LOT of crocodiles
Probably the best thing about Sri Lanka is the train. It’s not the fastest ride in the world, but it’s one of the most beautiful and gives you a chance to soak it all in (or hang off the side like I do).
