Thought I would share my personal tips when travelling to Sri Lanka:
1. Make sure Suresh is there to greet you at the airport. The best driver ever....avoids swooping eagles and wildlife like a pro!
2. Choose a flight with one stop rather than direct - Doha or Dubai is rather cool, thanks to the ultra luxurious airport and relaxing loungers!
You not only get the chance to stretch your legs, and freshen up in the spacious, clean rest rooms, but the flight is cheaper
