Yummy food, beautiful beaches, hot climate, and some surfing? You might want to head to Sri Lanka!
Being a quite diverse and multicultural country, Sri Lanka is home to many religions, ethnic groups, and languages. Given its 3000 years of history, Sri Lanka also holds some of world’s ancient cities. So that’s definitely a tick for culture. Add to this wild life and scenic nature and beautiful ‘surfable’ beaches and hello there, amazing holiday destination!
We stayed in Sri Lanka half a week and attended a friends’ wedding in Colombo. An epic weekend with lots of fun people, two days of wedding celebrations and lots of beach clubs and cocktail bars. Would definitely include Sri Lanka again to my travel list. But next time I will add the few extra days to make it to the south of Sri Lanka for some surfing :)
Below are a few things that we have done and travel hacks so you have some idea of what you are getting into when visiting Sri Lanka.
