Sri Lanka is a country which has lot to offer, and is much less talked about in this side of the world. A country of beautiful landscapes, and kind people, here’s experiences you shouldn’t miss if you are visiting the country.
Do not miss getting tender coconut on the streets, and having fresh coconut water. It is the only energizing drink you would need for any hike or trek. The sweet, and refreshing coconut water is one not to miss.
Do not miss lunching with the locals. If you can find someone to take you to a farm, and have lunch in a hut, then do so! It is an experience you will cherish – not only for the tasty meals, but for the sheer beauty of the raw experience.
Do not miss visiting the tea estates and tea plantations in Nuwara Eliya. The scenic views, and the world famous teas of Ceylon are one you should experience in person. And, when you are coming back make sure to buy tea for your friends, and families. They have a variety of Oh-I-want-to-buy this one kind of tea packaging in the world.
Do not miss visiting at least one fabulous beach as it is the country with some of the most beautiful beaches, and yes have fresh sea food.
Do not miss visiting any of Geoffrey Bawa’s architectural feat hotels or at least try and pass by his brother Bevis Bawa’s house. I loved that place and it was one of my favorite discoveries in Trip Advisor. Never had been part of the plan, and happened by accident!
Do not miss a visit to the Galle Fort and seeing the architecture, and the sheer beauty of everything medieval Dutch.
