S is for... Sri Lanka
Clasping your hands around a steaming mug of tea will never be the same after a visit to Sri Lanka. Under British rule, vast jungle regions were converted into tea plantations, and you can visit these lush hillsides to learn about their famous brew. While there, stay at altitude at Ceylon Tea Trails which comprises four colonial-era planters’ bungalows.
Here you can enjoy the solitude and feast on gourmet dishes. Tea is just one colonial aspect of Sri Lanka’s rich culture; it’s also known for local curry dishes, ancient ruins and beaches. Travel to Kandy, the cultural capital, which is famous for sapphires, and lastly, head to a national park to complete your trip with an elephant safari.
