Board the famous Blue train to Ella
All aboard! You’re going to Ella! Get ready to board what's known as ‘THE most scenic train journey in the world’. That’s quite a statement right? Known for its open windows and doors, trust us when we say that this particular journey most definitely lives up to its standards. If 10/10 views, would ‘gram vibes is what you’re after, we recommend you sit on the right hand side of the train where you’ll be able to enjoy endless views of tea plantations, mountains, and stunning green hills. Want to take it to the next level? Don’t forget to hold on tight and take the iconic picture standing in the open doorway of the train! (that’s only if you feel comfortable to do so ofc!) But if feeling on the edge isn't for you, don’t worry, we still got you! Reserve a seat in the panoramic carriage that will still provide you with insane jaw-dropping views. What are you waiting for? Get those tickets booked, it's a beautiful ride!
