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.
