Two feisty players from Australian football club Fremantle FC had a great adventure in Sri Lanka, and you can read all about what a terrific time they had on their website.

“Visiting the breathtaking Marissa Beach was a true highlight from our time in Sri Lanka. This secluded crescent shaped beach was the perfect place to sit back, relax and forget about the hustle and bustle of life back in Perth.

“As footballers, this international experience was invaluable for us… We loved this country, and after 15 days, I know that we barely scraped the surface. There might be more Sri Lanka in my future, and I look forward to delving deeper into this magnificent country.”

Sri Lanka, a new haven for Kiwi travellers

More from Down Under, this time New Zealand, we bring you a great little Stuff post that lauds “a new(ish) playground for lovers of ‘off the beaten path’ Sri Lanka … the top of many Kiwis ‘must-visit’ travel lists”.

“A place where green rice fields meet golden-sand beaches and morning yoga meets weeknight margaritas, there’s something for everyone on this picturesque island in the Indian Ocean.

“Having spent time living and travelling in Sri Lanka a few of my top recommendations include: Lovers of golden sand beaches, snorkelling and a quiet pace should head to Mirissa Fans of The Jungle Book should continue along the coast to Yala National Park where leopards, elephants and monkeys are in abundance.”

Why people keep revisiting Sri Lanka

The Just Dakhila blog notes that “mention of tourist spots in the South Asian regions of the globe is never complete without the mention of Sri Lanka, located just off the southern coast of India”.

“This is a country that has the highest returning tourists, with people visiting a region more than twice. There could be a number of reasons that have made Sri Lanka the well visited region that it is.”

Top scorers are the weather—“with sunshine out for up to nine months in a year, this is a country that a sun- bather longs for”—and the ocean—“surrounded entirely by the sea, Sri Lanka is never too far from an active seas shore”.

The wonders of Kandyan Art Association

On home ground, Savaary Sri Lanka reveals that “once you visit the Sri Dalada Maligawa—The Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic—if you decide to come out from the back gate, right along the lake, you will find many stalls and shops with various interesting things”.

“One of the most interesting places here would be the Kandyan Art Association. This particular place might not strike you at once, unless you go looking for it.

“It includes not only those from coming down the generations of craft families of Royal time, but also gives opportunity to ‘non traditional’ new craftsmen to exhibit and sell their products.”

The best of Sri Lanka—where to go

Hanna and Adam at Getting Stamped “spent 20 days seeking out the best of Sri Lanka. We explored the Eastern Coast of Sri Lanka, flew to the far far north up by Jaffna, and all the way down south to Galle”.

“We even went on a safari in Yala National Park safari. Sri Lanka is a country that has something to offer for every kind of traveler; culture, gorgeous beaches, wildlife, friendly locals, tasty food, and so much more!

“One of the best days during our time in Sri Lanka was the day trip out to swim with the incredible sea life around Pigeon Island National park. We traveled during off season but there are frequently whales and dolphins in the area. Sri Lanka should definitely be added to your bucket list.”
