Destinations

This is our main destination page.

Every single destination and related sights and activities are listed within these pages.

The pages of Jaffna and Batticaloa are special. We have travelled these destination with the purpose of gathering info and we have done our research. 

Great care was taken when these pages were written. We tried to make sure nothing is too much or too little. Historical legendaries and archaeological facts are all over these pages. References were made to reliable sources whenever available.

Our interest in Mother Nature is second to none. We find our articles could be little bit further enhanced with those details for the keen observer of Nature and animals. That is our next project. 

Please feel free to post your suggestions and experience about any of these destinations and activities under the relevant pages. These pages will always be updated with new and interesting facts!
