When we were in Sri Lanka, we spent a few nights in Kandy up in the centre of Sri Lanka. Very chilled and laid back place. Centred around the Kandy Lake. Monkeys roaming around and all sorts of birds. Visited the Relic Temple which was also lovely. Really worth a visit is the Colonial / English Graveyard up behind the temple.
Ceylon Tea Museum
The Ceylon Tea Museum stores the best tea leaves and showcases the history of tea making in Sri Lanka. Did you know that most of the popular tea companies actually import their tea leaves from Sri Lanka? Well, Sri Lanka is definitely a place where you can buy some exquisite variety of tea from the source itself. The Ceylon Tea Museum is a testament to the first crops of the different varieties of tea that are grown in Sri Lanka by British officials. The museum is open from 8.30am to 3.45pm from Monday to Saturday, and from 8.30am to 3pm on Sundays.
