Sri Lanka by AsiaRoom and Keys.me

Sri Lanka is all you could ask for, if you’re look for a relaxing place with white sand beaches, fresh food, and people so kind and helpful you will feel blessed. Just remember you will need at least ten days to visit, otherwise, you’ll end up like me - skipping some of the most famous spots like Sigiriya stone and tea plucking experience. But you will have fun swimming with giant turtles, and eating fresh fish curry.

 


 

Getting Around

 

Getting around Sri Lanka is challenging. For a distance of 120km, it takes 3 hours, and the roads are not the best you've seen. Trains are the most popular way of transportation for locals and tourists. The main train line is the one between the cities of Colombo and Matara. Another alternative to travel from north to south is by bus. The only downside is their driving style, bus drivers are known for crazy driving. I found trains a more relaxing experience. Also, you will never get bored, as locals will always want to have a chat with you and ask where you are from, and will share their recommendations.

 


 

 

 

Sri Lanka is a very diverse island paradise with hill tops in the central area, with surfing and blinding white sand beaches on the coast. For an island the size of Sri Lanka, there is indeed a lot to see and do.

 


 


 

Must Visit Beaches

 

If you’re looking for a beach vacation and not so much of planning and just hanging out, the villages down the coast are your best bet. Hikkaduwa, Galle, and Mirissa beaches are top spots for surfing and swimming. Hikkaduwa beach has a turtle sanctuary and center. You can go to Turtle Beach at sunset, and you’ll find them swimming right next to you. Swimming with giant turtles in their natural habitat is an incredible experience.

 

 

 

Mirissa, Weligama, Matara beaches are all neighborhood villages and easy to get to. Take a Tuk-tuk, which is a popular way of getting to the villages and beaches. Visit the beaches in the area, and maybe organize a whale watching tour. You can enjoy seeing these magnificent creatures from a boat just a few meters away.

 


 

 

 

Fresh fish every day

 

A visit to Sri Lanka would not be complete without enjoying fresh fish, and crab. You can find crabs, lobsters, and white fish, all freshly caught on every corner, and for a fraction of the price paid in other countries. If you want to treat yourself and finish your vacation in style, checkout the restaurants in Colombo in Old Dutch Hospital. No matter what type of vacation you have in mind when visiting Sri Lanka, I am sure you’ll start planning your return trip even before you leave the country.
