Fun You can’t Miss
Dreamy seaside train from “Spirited Away” Sri Lanka has been praised by many travel magazines as “the country with the most beautiful train lines in the world”. This train route from Colombo to Galle has one of the most beautiful window scenery in the world. The train travels along the blue sea as if driving in the sea. It is said to be the inspiration for the sea train in Hayao Miyazaki's "Spirited Away". Driving on this century-old railroad track, the speed of the train is not fast, and rarely exceeds 30 km/h. When the train is moving, the door is not closed. You can learn from the locals and hang by yourself on the open door, and let the sea wind blow your hair. It is a really convenient way to enjoy the scenery.
