Ella’s Tea Plantations

Ella’s Tea Plantations

Ella is one of the most charming mountain stopovers in Sri Lanka. Not so much the village itself as its surroundings. Ella has one main road where you find most of the village's activities. In less than 10 minutes you are in the heart of Sri Lanka's mountains, surrounded by nature and in the middle of the tea plantations.

Modern Wonder of the World: Galle Fort

Modern Wonder of the World: Galle Fort

if you're interested in the history of Sri-Lanka you mustn't miss the old city of Galle. The fort is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is definitely the most beautiful legacy of the colonial period. You'll love wandering around the cobbled streets of this city which is unique in Sri Lanka.

Get a taste of the buzz of the Pettah bazaar in Colombo

Get a taste of the buzz of the Pettah bazaar in Colombo

The narrow streets of the Pettah neighbourhood offer travellers an authentic experience in the heart of the oldest part of the capital. Every crossroads and each facade has its own share of surprises. Even though today you can hardly see the architecture of this neighbourhood any more because there are so many shop signs, it is still one of the most interesting streets in the city.

The other face of Negombo, between the lagoon and  the canals

The other face of Negombo, between the lagoon and the canals

As it is the seaside town that is closest to the international airport in Katunayake, Negombo is often the first stop for visitors arriving in Sri Lanka. Even though the coast is invaded by several kilometres of hotels, the south of the town still offers some pleasant surprises.
