The name Ceylon was given to Sri Lanka while the British controlled the country, which is why Sri Lankan tea is often called Ceylon tea. We find out the British influence remains strong to this day as we explore one of the finest tea plantations Sri Lanka has to offer in Nuwara Eliya. During the day, we visit Lovers Leap, explore the Pedro tea estate and enjoy a high tea. To experience the life of a local, there is an opportunity to pick your own tea leaves and discover the effort that goes into making the perfect cup of tea. http://yourtrip.com.au/destination/nuwara-eliya/

Sri Lanka: The perfect place to unwind

The Asian country has a complete philosophy for de-stressing and health: wellness.....read on

Are there spas in the UK? Of course there are. Can you get massages and steams? Yep. So why would you go all the way to Sri-Lanka to cleanse your liver, eat healthily and recharge your body.

Because it's much easier and more enjoyable to do when your body is bathed in the warm of tropical heat, where fruit falls off trees wherever you look, where the tea is as fresh as it can be (no teabag-filled dust here) and where your eyes and ears are soothed by blue skies and seas.

From the sun setting into the Indian Ocean, to the exotic birds that land on your tea table, to the elephants rustling in the national park, Sri Lanka has everything to enchant. It's a warm, funny place, with just about all the beauty you can absorb in one trip. It's also the perfect place to unwind, with a series of treatments known as 'Ayurveda', designed to beat the stress out of your body with massages, steams, oils, treatments and baths. Even the simple act of having water poured over your back feels healing, and three days of that will pummel your body and mind into submission, the stresses and strains of the city life seeming a long way away.

Monks brought the first teachings of Buddhism to Sri Lanka from these stone caves on the outskirts of Mihintale. The etchings in the rock created dry sections to shelter ancient paintings and teachings from the monsoonal rains. Discover more about Buddhism and it's role in modern day Sri Lanka during our small group tours: http://yourtrip.com.au/buddhism-and-elephant-gathering-safari/
