4 nights accommodation in Siem Reap on a B&B basis with 3 days of private guiding and a driver from £2,470 per person.
Following on from the Temple, we can board a train to take us to the small town of Ella. This train journey is inarguably one of the most beautiful ways to travel through Sri Lanka as it weaves among rolling tea plantations, the dense Sri Lankan jungle and sweeping mountain scapes. We can hop on and off the train as we please so if you are craving a dip under a waterfall to cool off from the humidity of the day, or want to grab a bite to eat in a rural village en route, that is certainly something we can arrange.
Before we conclude the journey in Ella, I recommend we visit Nuwara Eliya, famously known as ‘Little England’ thanks to its notable tea production and colonial style architecture. Settle in for an afternoon cup of tea at one of the tea plantations and chat with the endearing locals as they recount stories from their time working and living among the Sri Lankan highlands. From here, we can stroll among the pastures to reach Lover’s Leap, an imposing waterfall that stands at 30m high.
Finishing the day in Ella, we can rustle up our own dinner with a cookery masterclass taught by an established local chef. Play with the flavours, spices and aromas of the different ingredients that make up one of the most intriguing cuisines in the world and enjoy a dish that is one of my personal favourites.
There is no end to the discovery we can encounter in Sri Lanka, it is truly my passion to share the wonders of my country and with that, each day welcomes a new story to be told, from me to you.”
