Nurawa Alleziya or something like that - long trip through the Tea Plantations to Surrey, all Mock Tudor so weird it has to be seen and the drive is stunning.
Kandy to see the Buddha's Tooth and the Temple thingy place.
Galle for the surfing & the Fort and if you plan on going near Columbo stay at Mount Lavinia there is a hotel at the little railway station - real old school Beach Resort & you can hop in and out of the Metropolis by train.
Recommend checking with your Doctor about Malaria Meds and certqainly pack one of those Electric Mossie killer thingys and proper DEET not the Tesco's Own Brand Insect Repellant.
Coconut Arrack - has to be tried - once
Ah here you go Nuwara Eliya
It still had a BT Red Phone Box back in the day by the Post Office.
Nice Golf Course there as well
You have to put away the "Exploitation of the Poor" head and actually visit a Tea Farm/Factory to learn why PG Tips etc is actually the spawn of Hypo's Whale and Tetly is the Devil himself.
Broken Orange Pekoe is the way to go
Loved it but FWIW we had bombs in Colombo while there - don't let that stuff in Thailand scare you off they're as regular as clockwork all over the place these days. Bali is still doing OK....
