    A top recommendation that lived up to expectations. The views are awesome and the family are simply the most welcoming. You will soon become attached. Be aware that this is about 3km out of town so you can't easily pop out to the shops but the hospitality here means that you won't want to.

    Some say head to Ella and the Worlds End viewpoint, but we met a German guy back at the Lake and Paddy guesthouse in Alleppey who had raved about his stay at the White Monkey Homestay in Haputale. Since that time it had been high on our things to do list. Unfortunately we cannot remember the name of that inspiring Germany guy, but I do know that he …

    ... be warned that occasinally the group of artists were not in time, (it could have been an off day!) but the facial expressions of the lead male was a delight in itself! The following morning marked the day when I got to take the most beautiful train ride I have ever seen. We left Kandy train station to journey through the mountains into the depths of Hill Country to Bandarawela. The train carved through the most spectacular scenery of terraced fields, acres of ...

    ... especially the cleanliness.

    In the morning, we woke up at 5.45am to catch the first bus towards Dambatenne, where we would start our climb to Lipton’s seat. We shared the bus ride with the tea factory workers who were going to work and being dropped off on the way. It is best to arrive as early as possible because there tends to be a mist coming down around Haputale and surroundings past 10am and the point of all this is the view, a better one than ...

    ... until she arrived( very different to how we reacted to a late teacher!). Up we got at 7am the next morning and headed off again for a13km hike . It definitely wasn't as hard the second day as some of the tracks had cement( so the fear of breaking my ankle in the rocks was gone). When we reached the end we found a beautiful waterfall. A local family cooked us lunch and it was beautiful. Apparently they are a very poor family ...

    ... me stay in another room, which they carried all my stuff down to, wouldn't even let me carry down my iPad and also gave me lime juice which is apparently a Sri Lanken 'medicine' . It definitely helped as by 4.30 I felt just about well enough to go into town for a healthy drink before we boarded the overnight bus to Colombo. This was our most expensive accommodation but in reality it was nothing, costing us £12.50 for everything!!!! Unfortunately whilst having our drinks the ...
