Sri Lanka 'a popular tourist destination'

Article content

30 December 2009

Nuwara Eliya is a great place to start for those taking a holiday in Sri Lanka, it has been suggested.

Writing for Suite 101, Annie Wesley noted that the tourist resort offers travellers a first-hand look into the Indian Ocean island's tea production trade.

"Known as the 'heart' of the tea country, Nuwara Eliya is a mountain station at 1,900 metres above sea level situated in a splendid landscape," she stated.

According to Ms Wesley, several million tea leaves are plucked by hand each day by the 300,000 estate workers plying their trade in the country.

People viewing the hillsides of Sri Lanka in the mornings will see they are dotted with colour, she added, which are revealed to be the brightly-dressed women tea pickers upon closer inspection.

In recent news, holidays to Sri Lanka were predicted to become more popular next year by an Abta Travel Trends report highlighting exciting destinations to watch out for in 2010.
