Top 3 travel tips

1. Pay a visit to the cave temple

Absolutely worth seeing is the cave temple of Dambulla, a rock temple equipped with 53 cave Buddhas. The temple was built in 104 BC as a refuge for King Valagama Bahu. Besides a 30 meter high golden Buddha at the Golden Temple you can also visit a museum here.

2. Observe whales passing in the south

On Sri Lanka you have in the south with Mirissa the possibility of driving with an excursion boat for whale observation on the sea. It is not uncommon for a blue whale to suddenly appear right next to the boat, allowing you to admire the animals at close range. Refreshments such as snacks and drinks are offered on the boats.

3. Try delicious dishes from Singhalese cuisines

The dishes on Sri Lanka are among the hottest in the world. The dishes consist mainly of rice and curry and are varied with vegetables as well as fish or chicken. In addition, string hoppers, pasta noodles in strips, are a popular ingredient in the cuisines of Sri Lanka.

The southwest of the country is almost always humid, with most rainfall occurring from May to October.
