This summer was our first trip to Asia and Sri Lanka and there was a lot I wish I had known before we went, this post is a little summary of what would be really useful to know if you are planning your own trip.
I can't recommend Sri Lanka highly enough, just go! It is a warm and welcoming country with amazing places to see and visit, wonderful scenery and friendly people. It is a gentler India and a good introduction to Asia. I really hope we can go back one day!
Do take a look at my other posts about my Sri Lanka itinerary (slowly adding to them) where I go into more detail about what we did and share my thoughts:
Sri Lanka | Where shall I start?
Sri Lanka | Three Week Itinerary
Sri Lanka | South Coast, Whale Watching and Elephants
