Planning for an international tour? Why not consider Srilanka? It may be a small island in the Indian ocean but when it comes tourist attractions, the country is simply grand. From romantic beaches to lush green tea gardens, Sri Lanka will leave you in awe. Here are seven places that you must explore on your visit to this wonderland:
Bentota is the ultimate destination for honeymooners. It has got breathtakingly beautiful beaches, exotic blue lagoon and the quietude that honeymooners seek. Bentota is calm yet it boasts of an array of interesting activities that tourists can engage in. Visiting a turtle hatchery and watching a turtle hatch is one surreal experience that you mustn’t miss when in Bentota. Galapata Vihara should also be on your checklist.

Mirissa is another romantic paradise in Sri Lanka. You will find pristine beaches here and it gives honeymooners a certain amount of solitude. But at the same, Mirissa boasts of a stunning nightlife. The best highlight of Mirissa is that you can go on a tour to watch dolphins and whales in the deep ocean.
Kandy is one of the most visited cities in Sri Lanka. Home to Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic and Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue, it is often called the spiritual capital of Sri Lanka. Enjoying meals at restaurants facing the Kandy lake is something you shouldn’t miss.
4. Nuwara Eliya:
Nuwara Eliya is a quaint 19th century hill station that still has colonial-era bungalows, golf course, and luscious tea gardens. It’s a great way to get away from the hustle-bustle of the city life. On your train ride from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya you can witness tea plantations, waterfalls and breathtaking mountains. This picturesque landscape will fill your senses with vibrant energy.
5. Arugam Bay:
Arugam Bay attracts amateurs and professional windsurfers from across the world. April to October is the best time for surfing. Besides windsurfing competitions, you can also explore Panama and Kumana National Park and attend the legendary weekly beach party at Mambo’s. A trip to Arugam Bay is incomplete without a visit to Whiskey Point, one of the main party destinations in Arugam Bay.
To truly know a country truly, one must always visit its capital. One can see the Dutch, the Portuguese and the British influence on Colombo’s cultural heritage. A city tour on an open deck bus is the best way to explore Colombo. You can enjoy best Sri Lankan food in Colombo. And, as gambling is legal here, so you can try your luck. Even if you are not travelling with children, you can be a child again at the famous Leisure World Water Park.
