Come fall in love with Sri Lanka's best tourist spots in this tour
- Visit Kandy is a bustling city built around a lake in central Sri Lanka. It is listed as a world heritage site by UNESCO and is considered one of the most sacred places of worship in the Buddhist World. It can be beautiful, loud and peaceful, depending on where you go.
- Travel via Nuwara Eliya which - is known for its temperate, cool climate – the coolest area in Sri Lanka. Often referred to as ‘Little England’, this genteel highland community does have a rose-tinted, vaguely British-country-village feel to it, with its colonial-era bungalows, and pretty gardens.
- Climb a rock - if you’re in good shape and don’t stop to look at things, it’ll take you less than 30 minutes to climb all the way to the top of the rock. If you need a few breaks along the way or simply want to stop often to take photos and admire the view, it’ll take an hour and a half to two hours to climb up and go back down again.
