Sri Lanka is one of those countries you just end up falling in love with. With its breathtaking beaches, lush greenery, colonial countryside and busy city life, Sri Lanka offers a host of unique experiences that you won’t find anywhere else in the world. But before you dive into the Sri Lankan way of life, it’s good to learn a thing or two about what makes the country so special.
So, here’s a quick list of 3 interesting things you didn’t know about Sri Lanka:
Sri Lanka loves its tea
One of the first things you’ll learn about Sri Lanka is the country’s undying love for tea. As you travel across the length and breadth of the island, you’ll spot a variety of expansive tea gardens carefully tended by diligent locals. Nuwara Eliya aka Sri Lanka’s ‘Little England’, is surrounded by a number of tea plantations that would be happy to show you around and give you an insightful tour of the production facility.
Infinite Instagram-worthy photo ops
Be it selfies at the ‘World’s End’ located in Horton Plains National Park of Nuwara Eliya or sun-kissed stories from the beaches of Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka is abundant with breath-taking views, translating to envy worthy Insta posts. Especially Tangalle, the gateway to Sri Lanka’s southern paradise opens up the route to jaw-dropping beaches and wide-open spaces. Your quest for the perfect beach will take a pleasant turn as what you witness is guaranteed to exceed what you expected. Popular Tangalle accommodation such as Yoho Kings Road Villa is a perfect compliment to the picturesque setting.
