London’s metro ‘must-read’ highlights Sri Lanka’s top-10 adventure activities

The Evening Standard newspaper in London—a must-read for all metropolitans—is singing Sri Lanka’s praises for “top 10 activities to try for an active adventure holiday”.

Noting that “with mountainous scenery and tropical coastlines, Sri Lanka is an all-year round haven for those looking for an active adventure”, it highlights hiking the tea plantations at Madulkelle as a ‘must do’.

Snorkel and scuba diving in Trincomalee are second on the list, “a varied repertoire of dives including include shipwrecks and reefs” with PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors).

Surfing at Arugam Bay is next up, after which it’s back to dry land at Pidurangala Rock near Sigiriya, the Ratnapura route at Adam’s Peak—“although it is longer, it is also less populated and you’ll feel closer to nature”—and cycling the Bhuddist temples at Polonnaruwa.

Finally, “no adventure would be complete without a culinary pit-stop. The fruit, noodles, spices, hoppers, rice, seafood – everything – are both reasonably priced and delicious. Enjoy!”

On that subject, a previous Standard piece on Sri Lankan eateries features Pedlar Street in Galle town centre, which “has everything from salad thalis and thirst-quenching fresh lemonade at Poonie’s Kitchen to old-fashioned gelato at Pedlar’s Inn Café. For the best burgers try Rocket Burger”.
