Never did i expect Sri Lanka to be such a beautiful country, roads in Lanka to be so well maintained , cities towns and villages to be so clean, people to be so friendly before my visit to Sri Lanka and truly Sri Lanka is Wonder of Asia. We flew from Mumbai to Chennai by Indigo Flight at 6.10 am and reached Chennai at 8.10 am. We were lucky enough to watch a plane fly parallel to us. We had to catch our onward flight to Colombo from Chennai , and we reached Colombo at 2 Pm. Its better to carry dollars to colombo and then get it changed to LKR at Colombo airport.
1 USD is approx 181 LKR
Colombo airport( Katunayake airport) to Colombo city is approx 33 kms.
Our driver who was also our tour guide, entertained all our queries and he also explained us about history of various places in Lanka.We were very happy with his service.
We had our booking at Grand Oriental Hotel, oldest hotel in colombo. This hotel has got a majestic harbour view from the restaurant Harbour Room. Sri Lankan restaurant in this hotel serves you authentic lankan food at 1000 LKR. Colombo is such a clean and well maintained city . I felt as if i was in South Mumbai. With Same colonial architecture and skyscrapers around.
You should taste Kothu rotis, wood apple juice , walatappams at any local restaurants.
