Top things to do in SRI LANKA
Sri Lanka is the treasure of an island for all tourists. You can discover a variety of natural, cultural and historical heritages within few hours. With so much to see and do on this magnificent island, it certainly makes it one of our top places to visit when planning a school trip. Take a look below at some of our favourite things to do when visiting Sri Lanka.
Yala National Park
Yala National Park has been known to be one the few places in the world where one can spot a leopard. South Africa may have some of the best national parks in the world but a wildlife experience in Sri Lanka is not something anyone should miss. Yala offers a whole new experience when you’re spotting wildlife in the lush landscape.
Pettah Floating Market
The Pettah Floating Market is one of Sri Lanka’s little hidden secrets that not many people are privy to when they come and visit. Established on a bridge above the busy Beira Lake, this interesting market offers a variety of odds and ends like clothing, accessories, electronics and even fruits and vegetables. This one of a kind market is definitely a must see for anyone on a trip to Sri Lanka.
Turtle Hatcheries – Bentota
The Sri Lankan Government have made an effort to ensure the survival and conservation of the turtles and their habitat on their coast line. There are a number of hatcheries near the beaches where you can visit and learn about these ancient sea creatures. The Sri Lankan hatcheries provide a secure space for the hatchlings to nurture themselves before heading out the ocean. Learning about turtles have never been more interesting and the setting is just perfect!
Tea Plantations of Kandy
Sri Lanka is the one of the most important tea producers in the world. The best places to explore their plantations is in Nuwara Eliya and Kandy. Take a day to explore the rolling evergreen hills, sip on tea paired with some deliciously baked goods. The tea plantations sit on the outskirts of the towns and exploring the scenery makes you feel like you’re in another world.
Take your time to look at the history. Sri Lanka is filled with memories of an ancient time and Polonnaruwa Quadrangle is well preserved and rich in its historical past. The Quadrangle is built on a raised stone bank with a number of important monuments. This compound of monuments is a must see to any tourist seeking more information of the ancient city that was.
