Srilanka was always on my bucket list. Being my neighboring country & taking advantage of long weekend, I decided to visit this country for one week. My itinerary was very flexible, as I wanted to explore most of the places. Flying with Srilankan Airways, landed at the capital of the country by 5.00 am. Took a bus from airport to Colombo railways station (fairly took 1&hr) eagerly waiting for the train taking me to Kandy.

P.S. There are cabs too for Kandy but being a budgeted traveler I opted for train.

1. Kandy

I chose Down Town Backpackers Hostel, for my stay as they were quite economical.Kandy is the tiny hill station of Srilanka, so the only sightseeing of this place are temples, Big Buddha & Kandy Lake. 

There is one breathtaking tourist attraction (2hrs away from Kandy) called “Sigiriya Rock”. This destination is not to be missed. There are bus services taking you to Sigiriya Rock.

2. Ella

Spending two days in Kandy, I started my journey towards next destination – Ella (train journey is much recommended as the view is amazinggg). Ella is pretty pretty tiny, I visited four places in one day. Starting from Rawana Waterfall to Nine Arch Bridge to coffee plantation & last Adams Peaks. Each place has its own charm & worth visiting.Also, there are awesome tiny cafes & massage centers which one cannot give it a pass.

3. Galle

Moving forward, changing two buses, finally got me to my favorite place in Srilanka. This place is a real beauty and will definitely give you the European Vibe. Lively lanes, small cafes surrounded by beach, cycling around, every place is so much accessible. I cycled till Unawatuna beach & back and the experience was Woooow. Galle, has my heart and certainly going to visit again soon.

4. Colombo

Taking a bus to the last destination & the capital of the country, Colombo seemed to be just like any another metropolitan. There are few shopping malls & shopping street. I had my last dinner in this country at Marine Drive.

Srilanka's natural beauty is totally pristine. People here are very friendly and helpful. This country is getting acquainted with tourism.

I hope this post was helpful.Much Much Love :*Go Travel, Go Explore <3
