The island with the best of nature and wildlife. The country with ever-smiling people. The land with diverse cultures and religions. Yes… these are a few of many ways to describe the Pearl of the Indian Ocean ‘Sri Lanka’.
Don’t miss out on the Sri Lankan food
Sri Lankans surely have a unique taste. Their dishes are full of spices and authentic flavours. Forget the western dishes when you are there are get used to the ever-delicious dishes such as string hopper with coconut sambal and milk rice with lunumiris.
Sri Lankans are ultra-friendly
Did you know that Sri Lankans are some of the friendliest people on this planet? They will go the extra mile to help you if you are in need without you even asking.
Use public transportation
Sri Lanka has busses and trains. Even if you are heading to a Kalutara beach resort the likes of Avani Kalutara Resort from Colombo, you may just use the train or the bus. They are safe, cheap and offer great means to know the local lifestyles.
Sri Lanka’s tourism is booming
Don’t expect all parts of this country to maintain good standards of infrastructure as Colombo does. Some of the roads can be narrow, but you’ll love the ride for sure.
