Sri Lanka Town -- Ella, feel like arriving an Europe village

February 2020 · 2 min read · Uva Province

Ella , which famous as a star town , when sunny day , there is full of stars in sky .But ... I should come for stars , why you give me a rainy day ?Cry ~

Ella is a very small town , just a main street and walk just need around 10 minutes can be finish . It doesn't like Kandy so crowd, and don't like Anuradhapura and Dambulla so many historic site , maybe because ever colonize by Netherlands and England , it's more like an Europe village than Sri Lanka's.

Walking here , you can see more tourist than local people , most of shops whiting English .

The road is smooth that I finally no need to bring by luggage to walk .

But seems I was happy too early . Why? Both side of the road are shops and restaurants , you can't find any Hotel on the main street . So where they are ?All the hotels are in path road , and all the path roads are not smooth .

When I finally carrying my luggage and finish the path , I found I still need to walk a long stair...

The best way to enjoy this town is walk in a restaurant and have a peaceful tea time . Or you can go shopping, there have many small shops and some of them selling good design ornament .

I found an unique thing when go shopping , ask staff , they told me this is a guitar ,so special ~
