Nuwara Eliya, Pigeons Nest HomestayMay 4, 2018 in Sri Lanka
So we checked into Pigeons Nest Homestay last night, our first experience of a Homestay, we were really impressed by how nice they were. Akram, Prince’s son fetched us from the train station and talked us through a few things we could do during our 4 nights stay in Nuwaraeliya. It was raining when we arrived.
Nuwara Eliya means Royal City - because when Sri Lanka was still under British rule, only the Royal family along with other prestigious peeps of the empire were allowed to live in this area, they stayed here because it was a relief from the heat around the rest of Sri Lanka.
