CNNGo in Sri Lanka: Spicy crabs, blue whales and Ceylon tea


Starting in Sri Lanka's freshest seafood market and the renovated racecourse in Colombo, this month's CNNGo episode, ventures beyond the capital city to the seaside city of Galle and the tranquil tea farm-filled countryside.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site in the south of Sri Lanka, the Galle Fort still maintains a lot of its 16th century charm and is open to visitors. There's plenty of shopping within its walls, yet it doesn't feel like a tourist trap, states CNN Go in a report published today (12).

The writer explains and outlines several historical locations that tourists could visit.

From living like a tea plantation owner in a luxury bungalow to learning how the tea is harvested and processed, you'll leave here with a whole new respect for your humble cuppa, the writer said.

The CNN Go writer advises travelers when you go whale watching in Mirissa your best bet is to take a private whale watching tour.
