Sri Lanka has become a top Asian holiday spot - HuffPost Lifestyle, UK


Since the war ended in 2009, Sri Lanka has become a top Asian holiday spot, states HuffPost Lifestyle, UK in a report published yesterday (11).

A Portuguese fort, a temple on a hill and a beautiful bay - Trincomalee is the place to sight-see, the writer explain.

The only resort-centred area in the east, Passekudah is for those who are looking for a more luxurious stay.

About 40 minutes inland from Trincomalee, you'll find Minneriya National Park - and your chance to see some incredible wildlife. It is here that the island's famous 'Gathering' occurs in the dry season - where wild elephants come from miles around to gather by the reservoir, HuffPost Lifestyle further said.

Batticaloa Lagoon, Known as the 'Land of the Singing Fish' - legend says you can hear the music coming from the water under the Kallady Bridge at full moon - Batticaloa is a peaceful place to be, it added.
