DON’T LEAVE without…
EATING EGG HOPPERS
Find them at street stalls and hotel breakfast buffets. This Sri Lankan classic is the perfect healthy snack: a basketshaped, fermented pancake with an egg in the centre, served with seductively savoury sambals (hot sauces). They’re so trendy they’ve been adopted in London’s Soho at eponymous restaurant Hoppers.
SPICING UP YOUR LIFE
Sri Lanka’s delicious food and Ayurvedic medicine rely on the heady array of spices grown here. Visit one of the many spice gardens to see the plants growing, learn more about their properties, enjoy a culinary experience or enjoy an Ayurvedic massage.
SOME TEMPLE TIME
The human history here is as rich as the countryside, the country is studded with incredible temples and Buddhism is the dominant religion. Head east of Colombo to Kandy to visit the temple housing and the Temple of the Sacred Tooth relic, see Kandyan dancing and spot the bright and beautiful regional dress.
