For a small island, Sri Lanka has many nicknames: Serendib, Ceylon, Teardrop of India, Resplendent Isle, Island of Dharma, Pearl of the Orient. This colourful collection reveals its richness and beauty, and the intensity of the affection it evokes in its visitors. The beach thing may be a cliche, but don't miss them. Then head to the hills to cool off amidst tea plantations and ancient cities. The island teems with bird life, and even the occasional elephant or leopard. To top it all off, the people are friendly, the food is delicious and costs are low.

Negombo

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 | By mm12767 | Views [54]

We arrived in Negombo about half 1 so the journey - despite some horrible traffic - wasn't as long as expected. We checked into the hotel - Sahasra - which is quite nice, the bathroom is utter luxury compared to what we're used to but still only three ... Read more >

Kandy

Sun, 17 Jan 2016 | By mm12767 | Views [31]

We left the hotel around 10 after having breakfast - we each had a thin omelette, a slice of pineapple, a banana and some bread. The bread here is always served stale which is so odd. The roads were really windy again which again made everyone feel ... Read more >

Ella and Nuwara Eliya

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 | By mm12767 | Views [25]

Checking out of the hotel was a blinking nightmare. We went down to do it and no one had any idea how much we had to pay and they didn't speak very good English. We sat waiting for a while and then they called the owner who must have been away for a ... Read more >

An Early Morning at the Fish Market

Sun, 1 Nov 2015 | By lindsaylauren | Views [84]

Our final adventure in Colombo required a very early morning – I set my alarm for 4:50am, if I recall correctly. We left before dawn, headed towards Negombo, about an hour north of the capital. Bleary eyed, we arrived at the town’... Read more >
