Sri Lanka highlights

How to sum up our visit to Sri Lanka...


  • THE PEOPLE were generally incredibly friendly. Everywhere we went we were greeted with smiles and almost felt like celebrities. We certainly didn't manage to just fit in!


  • THE FOOD was pretty good, especially the local caf├ęs. You can eat delicious rottis, fruit, curd and curries and I is all incredibly cheap!


  • PUBLIC TRANSPORT is astonishingly cheap and good fun (for the first hour at least). Its very easy to get around. The only issue is the craziness of the driving!


  • THE ANIMALS. Wild elephants, incredible birds and leopards. Yala national park has to be one of our best days spent so far.


  • RELIGION plays a massive part in Sri Lankan life. There is great sense of community and always a festival of some description. All festivals seem to be about sharing what little they have...


  • THE BEACHES - stunning and deserted. Extremely laid back and missing the hedonistic element of resorts elsewhere in Asia - a great place to just relax.
