One of the great thing about Sri Lanka, is that the island offers you a variety attractions from the sandy beaches, jungles and the cool climates of the hills, especially that of Nuwara Eliya. Also, know as Little England, it is a popular destination for many locals to beat the heat. Picturesque tea estates and colonial inspired architecture really brings out the beauty of Nuwara Eliya.
Nuwara Eliya was founded during British colonial times; Sir Samuel Baker stumbled upon the beauty of the hills on a hunting party and decided to make it his home. Thereafter, other colonial settlers followed suit, bringing them English inspirations thus transforming it into a resort town during those times. The best time to visit Nuwara Eliya is in April with various attractions and activities being planned annually, including carnivals, rallies, horseracing and more.
