Singapore>Colombo > Galle> Mirissa>Ella>Kandy>Sigiriya>Negombo>Singapore
I went to Sri Lanka last week and realised that indeed, it’s a tourist friendly destination. People were friendly and it’s quite easy to find trust-worthy people. I felt safe, even when climbing hills on my own.
My favorite place was Mirissa. Sand was as fine as Boracay’s, fine and powder-like despite the color was a bit orangy/pinkinsh. The waves were a beauty. I think, people who are into surfing would enjoy these very much. It’s not as crowded as Boracay and it’s more peaceful too. Better than Bali beaches too.
I also liked Sigiriya because it’s jungle-like. Not much transportation, and if there is, it’s cheaper as compared to other places in Sri Lanka. I liked it’s uncemented roads, clay, dust, dirty stuff and of course that majestic Sigiriya Rock.
Well, I hope to check out the west and northern parts too…Next time..;)
