9 Things You Must Absolutely Experience in Sri Lanka

9 Things You Must Absolutely Experience in Sri Lanka
The Indian Ocean’s precious gem, Sri Lanka is truly mesmerizing thanks to its lush tropical vegetation, vibrant local culture and divine sea cuisine. This relatively small island, known historically and poetically as Ceylon, is now one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. While you are on a visit, make sure to do these nine things to get a taste of a truly Sri Lankan way of life.

Tea kingdom in Nuwara Eliya
The island’s remote position and relatively small confines make it hard for Sri Lanka to become an industrial hub. Instead, traditional industries like tea production are thriving. Sri Lanka was part of the British colonial empire and its heartlands still specialize in massive tea estates. Go enjoy the lush green plantations and source a few sampleі of famous Ceylon tea.

Get a taste of local seafood
While in Sri Lanka, eat the best seafood the Indian ocean has to offer. Tuna, lobsters, shrimp, crabs as well as more exotic sea cucumbers are incredible. Add to this lime juice and coconut grind, and you will never want to leave.

Visit a leopard sanctuary
For an accelerated heartbeat, visit Sri Lanka’s national parks, where leopards are protected. Rest assured that this is not just another one groundless tourist attraction. Sri Lanka is home to the largest number of leopards, so you will be sure to spot one.

Tour the island’s ancient capital
As the Buddhist nation, Sri Lanka can boast a rich and eventful history. Its centuries-old capital, Kandy, has seen the dawns together with the island’s first kings. Today, Kandy looks pretty much like a former English colonial town, but it has a few hidden gems left like the ancient white temple.

Explore Sigiriya fortress
This unique place is granted the status of the UNESCO World Heritage site and it surely deserves it. Time stands still here, and nature is truly tranquil. In ancient times, Sigiriya was home to a royal residence and a monastery. It is also one of the first places on the planet, where a man-made garden has been maintained.

See the surrounding islands
For a more complete Sri Lankan experience, go visit its remote surrounding islands, where a traditional way of life flows slowly without changing that much over the centuries. Join the locals to embark on a fishing spree and enjoy sweeping ocean views and majestic sunsets you will remember for life.
