Photos of Sri Lanka called by many the “Teardrop of India” and a “Paradise Island” because of its shape, spicy cuisine and beautiful golden beaches.

I love the train shots…. and what beautiful scenery!
These are our favourite ones as well. The scenery is beautiful indeed :-)x
Lovely collections of photos, especially that last beach shot! Wish I was there right now. :-)
Thanks. To be honest, me too!
authentic…original…beautiful…wonder of all wonders ! :)
Great photos. I was thinking of putting Sri Lanka on my must visit soon list…this post just bumped it up a notch!
Thanks Mike. You must go there. We were not sure if it was a good choice before getting into a plane, but then we absolutely loved it!
Great photos! Looks like it’s totally worth the visit :)
Most certainly! The food, of which we will write more soon, is a huge part of this destination. Some things just can’t be photographed, they have to be tried, so I’d recommend to go to Sri Lanka.
Love the elephants!! Makes me want to pack my bags and go:)
So do it then!!! :-)
Nice set of photos.
Nice photos. Hope you were able to visit Kandy as well (where I am currently living). Those yellow coconuts are called “King Coconuts” or “Thambili” in local language. Also curry and rice is often referred to as “rice and curry”. Hope you enjoyed Sri Lanka.
Hi Shamis. Thanks for stopping by. Unfortunately, we didn’t go to Kandy, we stayed longer in Pinnawala instead, but we passed by when travelling from Pinnawala to Ella. Thanks for telling us the proper name of the yellow coconuts. They seemed so odd to us. Never seen yellow coconuts before. We loved rice and curry and curry and rice :)
Wow – I love those elephant photos. So cute!
They are awesome indeed ;-)
Gorgeous collection…. I am missing Sri Lanka by brisk every time…. so many attractions in such a small country…
We miss it too, it’s so beautiful! Small, but picturesque!
Wow! Thanks for sharing your experiences and photos of course. I will be in Sri Lanka fon the 24th and stay for a few days. I got some tips on accommodation and food. Kandy is one of my destinations. How far is Pinnawala from Colombo?
Hey Lala, great to hear that. You will love Sri Lanka, that’s for sure. It’s about 70 km, not that far.
I saw that you went to Sri Lanka in October. i will be there this month as well. Do you recommend to book my accommodation ahead (via online or phone) or since it’s off peak just look around when I get there? I’ve asked some places and they gave me $20-22 a day since I’m traveling solo. Your insight would help a lot. Cheers!
Hey! It all depends on your schedule, time and your haggling skills :). If you don’t have a fixed plan for your travel in Sri Lanka and you want to go to places in random order, look for some adventure, you can haggle well and you are not afraid of interacting with locals you should definitely look around when you finally get there. It’s easy and definitely cheaper. We did it this way and it turned out to be a great idea. You shouldn’t pay more than $8-$10 per small room.
Great photos Agness and Cez – love them, Pinnawala was a cool place and I really loved Sri Lanka too. Safe travels. Jonny
