Sri Lanka is a country of the heart. This can be seen in the eyes, smiles and actions of its people. I have been around the world, and the Sri Lankan people are among the most welcoming, happy, and compassionate people I have met.
Having visited the island for over ten years now, I see many of the people I have met not only as my good friends but as my family too. Once you’ve visited you will see what I mean.
As with most places, speaking the local dialect goes a long way and gives you an instant connection with the people. Even if you just learn a few basic phrases, it’s well worth it and you’re sure to receive an even warmer welcome, if that’s even possible.
