After arrived at Colombo airport in Sri Lanka at night. On the next day, I took the train in the early morning at 8:30am to Nuwara Eliya. 7 hours later, I arrived at this beautiful place which full of tea plantations and friendly local people. Everyday I walked 2km from Lanka Hostel to City Centre and explored around this city.

People are so kind and they gave a window seat to me to enjoy the view. Totally unpredictable when will the train be stopped. People will hang around the platform and enjoy the sunlight (All taken with Sony A7ii with Summilux 35mm f1.4 ASPH FLE)


Town center is not that big so I walked to the bus station (busiest place) and wandered around the local shops above the station and it is like a magic mini mall to me. And this seems to be every citizen would buy their food and designed for commuters to get some snacks or even a haircut.

After lunch, I went to Nuwara Eliya Central Market where it is full of colour and life. I talked to them and ask for any local travel tips and we chatted happily and they treated me with sweet bananas. All of them were having a big smile on their face.
