Actually, it was Egreen first journey by train to matara. We started our journey from Panadura Railway Station. At 8.30 a.m. When the train was stopped matara it’s so beautiful city but it is a busy, booming and sprawling commercial town.Matara’s main attractions are its ramparts, a well-preserved Dutch fort. Beautiful Beaches, the beaches are so quiet and the only noise you can hear is the waves bouncing off the rocks on the cliff some distance away.
Matara sits on the south coast of Sri Lanka at the terminus of the coastal railway line it’s about four hours from Colombo (one and a half from Galle) and on a good day train is a great way to travel as you get to see the best of the coast.
