  • Organic tea plucking from the plantations in Nuwara Eliya holds precedence over any other activity in Sri Lanka. Why? Because the lush tea gardens, the fragrance of the leaves and the variety of teas you can taste, be it pekoe or green tea, is otherworldly. Otherwise, you can also visit the estates in Kandy or the Dambatenne Tea Factory in Haputale.


    Take a trip far away from the crowds and stop over at Pigeon Island National Park in Nilaveli. Here, you can quench your thirst for water sports like diving or snorkelling or also, just immerse yourself in the minimalistic, natural surroundings. We vote for taking a nap under the stars! Alternatively, you can go windsurfing, kayaking, water skiing or banana-boat riding in the waters of the Bentota River.


    In another scenario, some of the best wildlife safaris you can take, are here in Sri Lanka! Head towards the Yala National Park, home to the secretive leopards, or the Uda Walawe Park consisting of more than 500 elephants.


    Here are some of the best things to do in Sri Lanka:
