World's End Rd, Sri Lanka
Visit Horton Plains National Park’s much-heralded, spectacular vantage point — World’s End — before 10:00 a.m., at which time — more or less — clouds obstruct one’s vision. The view is incredible. Sri Lanka: My Favorite Trip Yet:...

The Ceylon Tea Museum is located in an old tea factory in Hantane, on the outskirts of Kandy. The entrance fee includes a guided tour of the building, introducing both the machinery of the 19th century and the process of making tea. The optional...

Kandy, Sri Lanka
Every year in July or August in Kandy, the ancient Sinahese capital of Sri Lanka, the Buddha's tooth is taken from the Temple of the Tooth in the center of town on parade around the city. It's by far the most amazing thing I saw in my year in Sri...

30 Saranankara Rd, Kandy, Sri Lanka
Freedom Lodge is near the lake, but just up the street and away from the loud road. Beware: at the train station, there are many tuk-tuks willing to take you to a hotel or guesthouse that is (too) close to the action downtown, but Freedom Lodge is...

Tuk-tuks are motor tricycles commonly seen in Colombo. They practically go anywhere you wish, and you can even hire them for a whole day to go farther places. But it is advisable to negotiate the price first.

Janadhipathi Mawatha, Colombo, Sri Lanka
Sky Lounge, the rooftop bar at the Kingsbury Hotel in Colombo, has one of the best sunsets going in the city. Take your pick to accompany your sundowner: the sun as it dips into the Indian Ocean, or the panorama along the shore from the edge of...

Church St, Galle 80000, Sri Lanka
Walking slowly along the Galle fort ramparts affords one a glimpse back in time, and a moment to reflect on the magic of travel. We stood and watched as local boys jumped from the walls into the shallow waters below, shrieking with excitement,...

Fort, Galle 80000, Sri Lanka
All of Galle Fort goes out to enjoy the sunsets: families walk the walls together; the little girls show-off their bright dresses and the young boys play ball. Tourists perch on roofs and balconies to watch the sun descend into the Bay of Bengal....

Cheena Kotuwa, Galle 80000, Sri Lanka
Sithuvili is a fantastic place to shop for traditional hand crafted Sri Lankan masks, among other goodies. Being that masks are one of the only things I collect on the road, it was a great place to explore. Part of the fun of finding Sithuvili is...

D.S.Abdelaziz, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco
Getting lost in the souk, and taking a chance by following a local kid. Ended up at an 11th century tannery way off the beaten track. Relieved to make it back, with a camel-hide pouf, and not having vanished in a lime pit.
