You know how you've always wanted to see Sri Lanka, but never really got around to doing it? Well, you are going to get your chance soon, and no advance booking or planning is needed.  

How so? 

Well, the Indian Road Transport and Highways Minister has just announced the construction of an amazing sea bridge and tunnel between India and Sri Lanka! This massive project is going to cost a whopping Rs 24,000 crore.

Currently, the only two ways of getting from India to the island nation is to either take a 3.5 hour flight from Tamil Nadu or a 45-hour ferry ride from Rameshwaram, Tamil Nadu.

This is really going raise the bar for cross-country road trips in India.

Can't wait? Neither can I!
