Grab some tropical fruits alongside the way and fulfill your taste buds. Or, you can book a train journey from Kandy to Nanu Oya or Nanu Oya to Ella or vice versa.

Eat rice and curry – the main meal of Sri Lankans, who eat rice and curry for the 3 meals of course with a variety of spices to stimulate your taste buds. Always ask for less spicy! Visit a local market, where you see people sell fruits, vegetables with loud noise and observe how they do it.
