After Breakfast, check out of your hotel and proceed towards - Nuwara Eliya – named "Little England" by the British who used this city in the hill country as a retreat to spend their vacations during colonial times. The colder climate away from the hot temperatures in Colombo was the perfect getaway for the Englishmen that were ruling the country at the time. En route, stop at a Tea Factory and enjoy a warm cuppa in the cool climes.
Check in to the hotel of your choice in Nuwara Eliya, and spend a day at leisure to rest and recuperate, in this little time capsule that takes you back to colonial Sri Lanka, strolling through the town, street shopping or simply relaxing.
(Approximately a 2 ½ hour journey from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya)
