Favourite thing to do
My favorite experience from our trip here was visiting the Udawalawe Safari and chilling out at the beach in Unawatuna.
Sri Lanka is a paradise of palm-fringed golden beaches, lush green tea plantations and towering peaks. Visit the ancient cities of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa or trek through rainforests to see waterfalls and wildlife. Sample delicious authentic cuisine like kottu roti and spicy curries.
Explore coastal towns like Trincomalee for some stunning sunsets or take a road trip around the island for breathtaking views of mountains and misty valleys. Sri Lanka has something for everyone – come explore!
