Initial Impressions- Sri Lanka
It is expensive compared to many similar Indian destinations. Particularly, entry fees for foreigners are high in many sight-seeing spots. Some may be worth the price, some not.
The people are nice and friendly. Mostly, laid-back. The cleanliness is a lesson to us. They also obey traffic signals.
The women wear sarees, but in a slightly different way.
The towns resemble Kerala in colour of store-fronts, and appams are available everywhere. The greenery is similar too.
So are lunch buffets with prices varying from 250 Sri-Lankan Rupees to 500 or more. Lots of women entrepreneurs in this business.
Tea, gemstones, cashews are some specialities.
It would take a week to see all the sights. We did a couple, along with the wedding.
E-visas are very easy to get online.
