Food & Drinks

Food and drink in Sri Lanka

Sri Lankan food is heavily influenced by its larger neighbour India. You can expect dishes to be packed full of the same flavours and spices like turmeric, chilli, garlic and paprika. Kottu roti is a type of stir-fry and the country's favourite street food – available all across the country, this delicious dish will satisfy every time. Some other must-try dishes include dhal curry, green jackfruit and sour fish curry. Be adventurous with your food and restaurant choices. Just because a cafe or stall looks basic, this doesn't mean that the taste is.

You won't have to stray far from you Sri Lanka accommodation to find fantastic food. If you're spending some time in the capital Colombo, then head to Ministry of Crab, The Lagoon or Upali's by Nawaloka. When you're travelling around, there will be a lack of formal restaurants, instead, you'll be greeted with authentic shacks and stalls. While they may be simple, they serve incredible food.

Art & Culture

Getting cultural in Sri Lanka

This island nation has a rich history and there is plenty to keep you busy when you visit. For tea estates and villages which resemble English architecture, then head to Nuwara Eliya. If you're keen to immerse yourself in some ancient temples, then either Anuradhapura or Polonnaruwa should be on your list of places to visit.

Kandy is well regarded as one of the must-see destinations in Sri Lanka. Famed for attractions like The Temple of the Tooth, The Bogambara Lake and its elephant orphanage, many regard Kandy as the cultural capital of the country – it has also been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status.

Local Attractions

Exploring Sri Lanka

Much of the country is dominated by rolling rice fields and lush jungle topography.

The varied ecosystem means that you'll see a hugely diverse range of flora and animals – as well as some of the most stunning scenery in Sri Lanka.

Mirissa is a picturesque beach destination where you can spend your days whale and dolphin watching and relaxing on the golden sands. There are also facilities to take part in a range of watersports from diving to sailing if you want to explore your inner adrenaline junkie on your Sri Lanka holiday.
