11 days in Sri Lanka – our tour

11 days are not enough to visit the stunning Sri Lanka, unless you get on a crazy bus… in that case you’ll need less days to go all the way round (you just need to survive the journey! 😊)

We had only few days, so we decided to spend them in the south west area of the island.
Ocean, beaches, turtles, forts, tea plants, temples and huge statues are just some of the stunnings things you’ll see in this area.
Not to forget the funny and bizarre people we met. Here all the posts related

Special advises: buses have TVs that show the traditional dances and music… if it’s a long journey it can become really frustrating otherwise you’ll enjoy it! Try always to find a seat on the bus because bus drivers are really crazy!!! If you are not in a hurry, trains are definitely a more relaxing option. 😊
