Visit the Hangungoda Tea Estate: famous for reviving the so called silver tips once beloved of ancient Chinese emperors; this estate launched some world’s most expensive tea in August 2004, and is a great place to visit.
Temples: the Yattagale or Rumasalla temples are both located near the Galle Fort and are especially beautiful on Poya days, which are local holidays.
Turtle conservation Project: we recommend taking a trip to the Rekawa Turtle project just south of Tangalle on the 205km mark. Please make a donation at the entry.
Organic Farm Land and Tour: a great place to visit, and a chance to meet Rory Spowers, a UK travel writer and founder of the Eco Estate at Samakanda. Take a tour and lunch at 50USD per person.
