Instagram-worthy places to explore in Sri Lanka

    Ella train ride in Sri Lanka

    Barely a 4-hour flight from Singapore, Sri Lanka is a beautiful country that caters to the diverse interests of visitors. If you’re after a truly different experience on your travel, we recommend you skip the metropolis Colombo city and hit places like the hill country instead. Places like Nurwaraeliya and Ella are abundant with tea plantations, waterfalls and scenic hiking trails. A few hours south of Ella is a place called Yala which houses one of the country’s largest national parks. There, you can jump on a safari tour and come up close with wildlife, including leopards, elephants and water buffalos. Here are some stunning shots we took with our trusty iPhone camera that showcases Sri Lanka’s stunning beauty and diversity.
