Sri Lanka is positioned close to the Equator that keeps the temperature fairly constant all-year-around. The daytime temperature in coastal and low land areas remains around 26–30°C but can climb up into 30°Cs too o hotter days. The major concerns are about the rainfall in the country. It rains all year but in different parts of the island, although the inter-monsoonal period in months all October and November have the heaviest rainfall and thunderstorms.
This was the first time we saw Tea Plantation, and it was really beautiful. The lush green lands and a new variety of food choices make the tour more exciting.
The exotic part of Sri Lanka is the beaches, they are surreal! We enjoyed sitting on the beachside and the hustle-bustle of the city is also a real experience.
The Sri Lankan money is the Rupee (Rs), separated into 100 pennies. Notes come in divisions of 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000 and 2000. Breakdown bigger notes when you change cash – it can some of the time be an issue to breakdown a bigger note (500, 1000 or 2000).
