What places to visit a tourist in Sri Lanka?

This exotic island attracts a variety of tourists. In addition to the colorful nature, here you can find entertainment and excursions for every taste …

A chic beach holiday is combined with excursions to ancient temples, vast tea plantations, national parks and, of course, tasting delicious food. Consider the most interesting objects for tourists.
Pigeon island
This national park is in many guides, for example, miroved.com/countries/shri-lanka. The island has snow-white beaches, beautiful nature, and the sea around is great for diving and snorkeling. Having plunged into the turquoise waters of the sea, you can observe the life of coral reefs and their inhabitants:

starfish;

hedgehogs;

fish of all shapes and colors.

The best photos are obtained at sunrise and sunset.
Horton Plateau
Horton Plateau is a complex of natural attractions: waterfalls, stone deserts, impassable forest, beautiful streams and rare animals. But most of all, tourists appreciate the cliff “End of the World” – an observation deck without fences, which fits right next to the edge of a sheer, almost vertical cliff. Most of the time, the earth below is hidden by clouds and it seems that this is really the very end of the world. Only in the early morning, when the sky is clear, you can see the southern part of the island below and assess the height of the natural elevation.
Tea Center Nuwara Eliya
Visiting Sri Lanka and not knowing about local tea is a real crime. One of the most popular excursions to alpine tea plantations, as well as factories located next to them. Here you will see how tea is grown, harvested and made. It is not only interesting, but also very beautiful. You will also try different types of tea, get acquainted with the local culture of tea drinking and learn to distinguish real Ceylon tea from fakes.
Yalya National Park
Here in the natural habitat live elephants, crocodiles, buffalos, peacocks and many other interesting animals. For tourists conduct jeep safari tours with getting out of the car in specially designated places. During an exciting trip, you will not only see how various representatives of the fauna coexist in the wild, but you can also take beautiful photos on the background of interesting rocks, bald trees and interesting reservoirs.
Polonnaruwa Park
It is impossible to get around this temple complex in one day, but it is so interesting that you will probably want to come back again. The well-preserved ruins of a medieval city-capital seem to be transferred to the past. In addition to temples, there are palaces, gardens, a library, and baths. The color is added by goats, macaques and cows, freely walking among the remains of ancient structures. Be careful, bats are found in some places.
Lagoon Batticaloa
An unusual phenomenon awaits the guests of the Batticaloa lagoon. If you came here in the summer, head to Lady Manning Bridge at night to listen to the fish singing. Especially distinctly singing fish are heard in the full moon. Scientists are still not sure where this sound effect comes from, but most are inclined to believe that it is not the fish that produce the singing, but the mollusks. But in any case, you should hear this unusual and mysterious sound yourself.
Esala Perahera festival in Kandy
This Buddhist festival is reminiscent of a carnival in Rio de Janeiro. It has floating dates and is held for 11 days. Dancers, musicians, fakirs, acrobats and brightly decorated elephants march through the streets. The colorful decoration is complemented by luminous illumination, authentic musical motifs and tunes. So, if you are lucky to be in the country during this religious event, be sure to visit Kandy.
