A popular resort among Sri Lankans, Nuwara Eliya, is at its busiest during the Sinhalese-Tamil new year in April, when spring comes to the hill country, the flowers bloom and the Colombo Smart set descends.

For ten days, the town gets overrun and accommodation prices go through the roof, while visitors ae entertained by a succession of events, including horse racing, golf tournaments, motor-cross, clay-pigeon shooting and a mini-carnival.

Nuwara Eliya is the highest town in Sri Lanka, was established by the British in the nineteenth century, and is often touted as Little England, a quaint Victorian relic complete with municipal park, golf course, boating lake, a trio of old colonial hotels and frequent showers of rain, all very British.
