Regional Review section has been designed with view of helping people
finalise their tour itinerary in the best possible way. You would get to
know about all the popular tourist destinations in a particular region and
you can sort out your final programme keeping it in mind. On administrative
basis Sri Lanka is divided into 9 provinces and 25 districts. However
Regional Review has been constituted with the mindframe of a tourist. You
can choose one, two or all of these tourist sections for visiting, as much
your time and budget allows.
The Hill Country or the Central Highlands have
pleasant cool climate. The hilly slopes are covered by tea plantations which
creates a distinct aroma on mixing with fresh air. Hilly regions give Sri
Lankans respite from hot and humid climate.
South West Coast attracts tourists for its pretty
sandy beaches and mangrove fringed lagoons. One can find numerous resorts on
the coastline. One can reach the rubber estates by taking the back-in roads.
One can also occasionally see ancient temples.
Capital Colombo itself sits on the western coast of
Sri Lanka. Another famous place is Negombo, a nice place to have fun on
beaches. Its canal system also makes interesting. Sea food of Negombo is
famous all over Sri Lanka.
East and north region has seemingly unending beaches,
great surf and mangrove lagoons yet it has been largely off the tourist map
due to civil unrest. Ideal time to visit the crowdless and warm east coast
is May to September.
South Coast of Sri Lanka has some pristine beaches,
diving and snorkeling opportunities, sites having their base in history and
several other interesting places. On top of the visitors' list remains
Galle. One can have access to several national parks.
UVA is the largest province in Sri Lanka. It hosts the
places like Uda Walawe National Park, Yala National Park, Badulla,
Bandarawela, Wellawaya, Veddhas and Kataragama. Any visit to UVA province
can be very enjoyable.
