I thought it was a lovely peaceful place. The people are so friendly and are always happy to help. There is lots to explore and lots of things to do. We Saw elephants, temples, a tea factory, climbed a mountain and saw culture dancing. There is so much to this beautiful country and so many suprises wait for you. Our hotel was relaxing and offerd lots of spa facilities and beauty treatments. it was a wonderful experience and an ideal honeymoon destination. With all its secrets still waiting to be discovered, we will surely be going back.

Useful Tips:

All the tours the hotels have to offer. You get a guide who tells you all about the places and history and meanings of the various places and people you see. A trip to the temples is a must they are very splended inside and a boat trip is a lovely way to cool down.

This is the best place on earth to stimulate all of your senses,you really dont know what you are missing Sri Lanka is so diverse it has something for eveyone with beauty all around. The people are so friendly,the food is amazing,the beaches are glorious the weather is perfect. From watching ladies picking tea on the hilltops to water buffalo sitting in a paddy or rice field and men washing in waterfalls !! Unspoilt beaches and amazing warm sunsets,Buddha monks in bustling Candy and gorgeous scenery...this destination is really out of this world . A real eye opener and you could never get enough of it as there is so much to explore. The cost of living is so low,it is affordable to take the time to absorb ...a really beautiful country and i would go back in a heart beat given the opportunity

Useful Tips:

the sun is really strong and high factor sun cream definately needed i would advise to take a mosquito net for sleeping although all the bigger hotels will provide anyway, The majority of people are quite poor and really grateful for any little luxurys you could fit in your suitcase,they where amazed with the babies buggy and if she had been a little older i would have left it for someone with kids. the Sri Lankans are very family orientated and adore children you do see a lot of beggars in Candy and places where tourists might visit and the school children find it hilarious to see grown men in shorts as only little boys wear them and all the men where cool trousers, if you are visiting a Buddhist temple or any religious sight cover your arms and legs and dont look at the camera if taking photos in holy places as it is frowned upon

Magical, a real adventure of a holiday, with all the touches of a luxury one as well. Very friendly staff all the Sri Lankan people we met were very friendly and hospitable. Lots to choose from, lazing near the pool, on the beach or visiting "Lion Rock" and the Elephant Sanctuary. Fantastic curries tasty and spicy without the sheer heat of ones found in the UK. An amazing trip and a place that we yearn to return to.

Useful Tips:

Bluewater hotel. Lion Rock. Elephant sanctuary. Rubber plantations. Traditional wood carving. Buddhist temples.
