Talalla’s unspoiled beach is popular with surfers. If waves aren’t your thing you could take part in yoga sessions – or simply notch up some more chill out time on its creamy-coloured sands.

Coffee has always played second fiddle to tea, although most tea served in Sri Lanka is surprisingly bland, considering it’s the national drink.

Public Holidays on this island nation are dominated by the Poya. These holidays are observed on every full moon. Each Poya marks a significant event for Buddhists. While the dates generally match the date of the full moons, the Sri Lankan Government may shift the holidays by a day or so, so check back here for the latest dates.

I usually recommend booking your accommodation on Hotels.com due to their great loyalty scheme and book ten, get one free system. As with much of Asia, Agoda actually has a selection of properties that aren’t available on other sites so might be worth taking a look at.

In Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka Railways runs throughout the island. A train ride is more relaxing as compared to other rides. In fact, the first class train ticket in Sri Lanka does not go beyond $15.35. In Sri Lanka, there are three rail lines, including South from Colombo, East from Colombo, and North from Colombo. One can book regular class or an AC class depending upon the distance of your location and hours of travel.

For most buses in the more remote parts it is best to ask in local shops for where/when they operate as timetables can be pretty flexible. Sometimes, you may opt to go for the private driver route for certain legs which was what I did to get from Ella down to Mirissa to save time – the cost is not that big.

All visits to Sri Lanka currently begin at the international airport just outside Colombo, the island’s capital and far and away its largest city. It’s a sprawling metropolis whose contrasting districts offer an absorbing introduction to Sri Lanka’s myriad cultures and multi-layered history.

More unspoilt countryside can be found north of Colombo at the Kalpitiya peninsula and in the vast Wilpattu National Park nearby, home to leopards, elephants and sloth bears.

In Sri Lanka, you can get experience in water base, air base, earth base and many kinds of activities. Read More

Nuwara Eliya is better known as Little England of Sri Lanka. The climate, surroundings, and architecture of this area are different than other villages. Thanks to its cooler climate, it is the most important area for tea production in Sri Lanka. The area holds many natural beauties, like waterfalls, hills, tea plantations, and the towering Pidurutalagala, the tallest mountain in Sri Lanka. This place is a must to visit in Sri Lanka, and once you get there don’t forget to have a cup of tea!
