Nuwara Eliya – The tee capital

Nuwara Eliya, or City of Light, is the tea capital of Sri Lanka at an altitude of approx. 1900 m and is the most visited hill station of the island. No wonder, since it means a break from the oppressive heat and humidity that surrounds the rest of Sri Lanka. Visiting the tea plantations you can learn how tea is produced and you may taste a cup of the world-famous “Ceylon tea” and buy some for home. On your way to Nuwara Eliya there are also some worth seeing places, like a waterfall or in this area you might see some monkeys in the trees.

Kandy

Kandy, Sri Lanka's second largest city and cultural capital is the gateway to the higher hills and tea plantations. The clarity of the air and its verdant, hilly outlook around the sacred lake make it a pleasant escape from the heat of the coasts. Kandy is home of the Dalada Maligawa, one of Buddhism's most sacred temple containing the palace of Sri Lanka's former king and the holy of holies, the relic of an actual tooth of the Lord Buddha. It is said that worldwide there are three of the Buddha's teeth - one in India, one in Thailand and this one in Sri Lanka. Every year in July/August, when eleven-days “Perahera” of Kandy is celebrated, it is carried by emblazed elephants.

As far as dancing is one of the singhalese arts and traditions, the popular Kandy-Dancer tell stories of gods and demons in magnificent costumes.

A Kandy city tour also implies the visit of the botanical garden "Peradeniya" , which is one of the biggest and most comprehensive botanical garden in whole South- and Southeastasia. It´s main focus forms a in 1861 planted Benjamin Ficus with an widely protruding crown.

Galle

 UNESCO appointed the town 1988 as world heritage, because of the very well preserved buildings of the Dutch occupation.  Narrow alleys, skew-whiff buildings with porches and small atriums, baroque lanterns and unspeakable street names. The harbor of Galle was very important for the industrial development and was aimed as an well known place for trading of jewelery, silk and spices. One of the most interresting sights in Galle is the big fort, built by the dutch, developed later by the britains and surrounded by an impressive and accesible fortification wall.
