Useful information [edit]

For many years, most of the northern and eastern coast of the country was the scene of civil war between government army and rebels. However, only small area in the north of the island remains dangerous now.

FlyDubai has international route to Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport - MRIA (HRI). This airport is good for those wishing to get to the south-east of Sri Lanka.

FlyDubai makes technical stop in Colombo airport (CMB), that lasts about half an hour.

Does anybody knows about Marawila beach? It's a bit to the north from Negombo. I've booked the hotel there. How strong are the waves in December?

Uber is a great transportation option in Sri Lanka! It is comfortable and cheap (like everywhere in the world).

The best is to order it from/to airport. But large distances can also be very good. You may use calculator on their web site to understand what prices can be for your route.

Prices are quite the same everywhere in Sri Lanka. And there's nothing like Pattaya. The most funny places in Sri Lanka are Hikkaduwa, Mirissa and Weligama.

Is there something cheap and funny like Pattaya, but in Sri Lanka?

Yala is beautiful. There ara jeep salaries on a day trip basis. Leopards, elephants and so on. Even better than Kenia or Tansania!

Yala National Park in south eastern Sri Lanka. It it worth to visit?
