Nuwara Eliya is a beautiful and charming city located in the heart of the Sri Lanka’s hill country. The region boasts several mountains, lush green tea plantations, cascading waterfalls, national parks and many more scenic sights as well as a rich heritage and culture. Nuwara Eliya has a serene and peaceful vibe and it’s nicknamed as Little England, because the community was once a popular retreat for the British due to its cool climate. Nuwara Eliya now resembles a British country town with a golf course, post office, Tudor-style hotels and colonial-era buildings. The Grand Hotel in Nuwara Eliya is an excellent 4-star colonial-style hotel which overlooks pretty rose gardens with outdoor seating. It’s the perfect accommodation choice for your holiday to Nuwara Eliya. Whether you want to visit for a long weekend or an entire fortnight, Brightsun Travel has a great range of cheap holidays to Nuwara Eliya to suit a range of travellers. Those on the lookout for a cultural experience and something a little bit different should also visit the colourful Seetha Amman Temple; a remarkable Hindu structure located amidst pine trees and misty mountains. The shrine is included in many legends, so it’s definitely worth a visit.
Another must-visit attraction in Nuwara Eliya is the Pedro Tea Factory. Here you can enjoy a guided tour and learn about the tea-making process, sample freshly-brewed tea and generally enjoy a cultural and educational experience.

Next amongst the best things to see in Nuwara Eliya are its glorious strawberry fields. During certain seasons visitors can walk through the fields and pick their own strawberries as well as enjoy a tractor tour.
