The Adventures of Soph revels in the most picture-perfect spots in Sri Lanka!
In the latest post on the Adventures of Soph blog, this “22-year old, bubbly Aussie who just wants to live the brightest, lightest and most colourful life possible”, raves about Sri Lanka.
She says: “It just has so much to offer. It’s the type of destination that makes you feel like you have had four different holidays all within staying in the one, and very small country.
“There is just so much to like – the bright eyed locals, the exquisite landscapes that change at ever corner turned and cuisine that for once, did not make me miss western food.
“It’s a very special place that I believe will become the next destination hotspot for travellers of all styles, ages and ethnicities. But for now, I will let the photographs do the talking.
Some of the special places she particularly loved during her whistle-stop tour
Make a trip out to Pigeon Island from Trincomalee to swim with sea turtles, black-tip sharks and hundreds of little fishes.
Climb up Sigiyira’s neighbor, Pidurangala Rock, to get this incredible view.
Fruit stalls in Kandy
Bring all of your senses alive with a visit to the Central Market in Kandy. The fruit and veg stalls are so impressive. I have never seen fruit looking so perfect and colourful.
Udawalawe National Park
Watch the sun go down with an Elephant at Udawalawe National Park (and almost get blown away by the intense winds).
Ella to Kandy train ride
Quite possibly the most beautiful train ride in the world. Take the journey from Ella to Kandy or vice versa to be treated with never ending landscapes of tea plantations.
9 Arches Bridge Ella
The insta-famous 9 Arches Bridge is just a 35 minute walk from the Ella train station. Simply walk through the train station (past the ticket booth), hop down onto the tracks and take a right.
Back of Beyond Treehouse
Unleash your inner tarzan and spend a night atop one of Back of Beyond’s treehouse in Sigiriya.
