Economy of the trip:

Sri Lanka is a lot cheaper and economical holiday option if you are the budget conscious traveller.

Things you shouldn’t miss in Sri Lanka:

The train ride, Mt.Lavinia beach, you can also go on a circuit around the island in search of beautiful beaches.


Sri Lanka is a nice cheap outing and is good for you to get that extra stamp on your passport. Somehow, I wasn’t impressed by Sri Lanka. In a many aspects, Sri Lanka looks a lot like India and hence if you are an Indian, you would be disappointed if you expected “something new” in your “foreign” trip.
