Sri Lanka is a place for the surfer, mountain trekker, tea drinker and temple adventurer. If you like scenery, flavorful food, friendly people and culture, this is a country for you. In Sri Lanka we hiked epic mountains, climbed stairs to a sacred giant Buddha, tried Ceylon tea fresh from its source and laid back with fruit smoothies on the southern beaches. Make sure you book train tickets in advance for one of the most unique train rides through Sri Lanka’s highlands, and smile all day, because that’s what the locals do.
