Known to be one of the most scenic rides not just in Sri Lanka, but in the world, the trip from Kandy to Ella is an absolute must! For just a mere $1.50, you can get yourself a ticket and enjoy 5 hours of gazing out at vast mountain sides, picturesque little villages, as well as the lush tea plantations of Nuwara Eliya. It may be a great idea to get down and check out the Pedra Tea Estate and see first hand for yourself how tea is grown and made here! The 20-minute guided tour of the factory is a recommendation. By the way, did you know that Sri Lanka is the world’s fourth-largest producer of tea?
