You may wonder what this jewel shaped island in the Indian ocean hosts that is beguiled by travelers. Surprise ! Surprise ! It indeed is an amazingly diverse country with everything you could want from a destination.
When other destinations like Bali gave us a serene and calm experience, SriLanka on the other hand, gave us some magical experiences showcasing nature at its best form!Verdant landscape, endless beaches, timeless ruins, oodles of wildlife (specially the whales), fun trains, famous tea,cheap tuk-tuk rides are our favourite picks from the trip!
Usually travelers hitting SriLanka ends up visiting only the south coast. But the actual beauty lies in the central province. Many of our friends have requested us to post our itinerary after our recent travel, so here it is…
Ours was a 5 day trip around October first week. The climate at central province was super cold but when you come down to south coast, you must not step out without a sunscreen (scorching hot days with cool sea breeze in the evenings). We booked a taxi in SriLanka for transfers between provinces and took tuk- tuk rides for short transfers within the city (cheap and fun)
