Kandy is the second largest city in Sri Lanka after Colombo. Very lively, the city is built around a large artificial lake and is particularly known in the Buddhist world for its Temple of the Sacred Tooth. It is a very pious and conservative city, and therefore not very festive in the night (for party, […]

The Temple of Dambulla is a must if you love Buddhas (the temple is composed of five large caves which are filled with Buddha statues, risk of overdose!) but it’s also worth it for its numerous monkeys, its horribly kitsch entrance gate or its magnificent view once you reach the top. Visit the temple of […]

Spend at least one day in the Sri Lankan capital to visit its temples, especially the romantic  Seema Malaka Temple, our favourite because it is on the water. Walk in the shadow of the Viharamahadevi Park or along the beach when the sun goes down to try the street food. It’s a nice introduction to […]

Tangalle is a beautiful beach that has the advantage of being not touristic and therefore almost deserted. It must be said that this is not the ideal beach for swimming, the waves are very strong. It is sometimes advised not to swim, but if you do not go too far it’s pretty funny to play […]

Mirissa is a beautiful little beach, very quiet and a bit bohemian, more popular with couples and backpackers in our opinion because the nightlife is almost nonexistent. This is perfect for a relaxing evening sipping a cocktail. WHERE TO EAT in Mirissa? We ate at a restaurant on the beach, because the atmosphere is extraordinary […]

Ellat is known as the backpackers hub in Sri Lanka, and it is clear that we came across more backpackers than locals here. Ella remains unspoilt by mass tourism tough! This pretty mountain town is the perfect place for those who want to take their breakfast on the patio of their B & B on […]
