(3/5 based on 1,200+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: parks, nature, shopping
A regional city in the middle of the island, Matale has become known as a center of agriculture. As such, it can be hard to see where the fields and plantations begin, as the growth of industry has led to urban sprawl and a pretty plain main urban area. But head north out of town during your trip to Matale and you'll find a wealth of spice plantations, where rubber, cocoa, cardamom, and chillies flourish in the tropical climate. To personalize your trip to Matale, create itinerary details specific to you using our Sri Lanka vacation generator.

Where to stay

You'll find some fairly standard guesthouses and small hotels in Matale's main urban area, never straying very far from the station and the parks of the city center. Alternatively, explore out of town to the north, east, or south for a host of other more characterful accommodations that show off the fruits of the area, including campgrounds, ecolodges, and farmstays. For a much greater choice of places to stay, look in Kandy, one hour to the south.
