I spent two weeks in Sri Lanka. This touring company gave my parents and I a small bus and a driver named Sinivee. He drove us from Colombo— where we flew in— All around the southern part of the country. We did all sorts of touristy things like visiting the herb gardens and tea house, the wood carving shops, the Elephant zoo, the public temples and historic castle/fortress all along the way.
While I was there I became dehydrated right around the time we went to see the Elephant zoo so my biggest piece of advice I can give is drink lots of water! And drink it often! I missed out on a day or two of my vacation there because I was dehydrated and sleeping in the back of the bus.
Around the end of our tour of Sri Lanka our driver took us back to his house to meet his wife and daughters. His wife made us dinner and we sat and talked to them for a few hours before we got back on the road.
I can say with all honesty that the people in Sri Lanka have to be some of the happiest people I have ever met.over 5 years ago
