Miss India 2016 Runner up, Sushruthi Krishna, shares her experience as a tourist in the pristine island of Sri Lanka.
1 Sri Lanka has a whole plethora of places to visit. My favourite would be the hill station at Ella, which I would recommend all first time travellers to visit. The train rides, the scenic views and the food culture are all wonderful. It makes you feel welcome and one with nature.
2 Being a vegetarian can be a challenge if you travel internationally. However, Sri Lanka has amazing food to try like coconut sambol, hoppers, curries and so much more! For vegetarians, I would recommend the Ceylon Tea Factory Restaurant.
3 Five suitcase essentials for me would be running shoes, sun glasses, swimwear, a book and my headphones.
4 I went on this trip with a group of my best friends. One of the stays we booked was in a hill top hotel with a view of the valley. We could see the waterfalls, the river and a beautiful railway bridge. We had a wonderful evening with great music and good food as we took in the breathtaking view. This would be my perfect travel moment during the trip.
5 The next place I want to visit is Vietnam and I would really like to cross this off my travel checklist!
