My first meeting with Asia happened during our Christmas Vacation 2012. We we lucky to spend a blissful vacation in this beautiful and unique country. Follow this link to view an interactive map of Sri Lanka.
One of the disadvantages of traveling from Europe to Asia is the cost and length of travel. I think that was the only disadvantage about this Christmas vacation as I was very enthusiastic about this trip. With this enthusiastic and cheerful spirit more than 16 hours of traveling time went by pretty fast.
This trip was most beach holiday with some day trips to learn more about history and traditions of this amazing country. For the most of vacation we stayed on Unawatuna beach. Our favourite place on this beach was Unawatuna Beach Bungalow Hotel. This is an ideal place to stay if you are going to Unawatuna, and don’t want to pay top end prices. The rooms are simple but very clean, the staff is very friendly and the hotel is just 1 minute away from the beach. We stayed at couple of other hotels on Unawatuna beach but this one was the best for its price.
We decided to spend New Year in a more luxurious hotel. It was an outstanding experience. We’d highly recommend Lighthouse Hotel near Galle for couples, families, foodies and beach lovers.
I fell in love with this amazing country. I look forward to come back again and explore their tea plantations, rainforest trails and many more exciting and uniques things this country has to offer.
