Arrival at Homestay

When you arrive at your new home and meet your host in the afternoon, you’ll be welcomed with open arms. There’s a really relaxed atmosphere here and you’re sure to feel immediately at ease. You can spend your first evening relaxing in the garden with a good book or taking a look around the home – you’ll find plenty of interesting photos! In the afternoon you’ll head out on a city tour and see the sights. We’d recommend visiting the royal botanical garden and the temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic.

Today you’ll start your morning by heading for a stroll through the local villages before tucking into your breakfast. After you’ve eaten, you’ll weave between the stalls of the local markets where your senses will be awoken by the colourful sights and tantalising smells. On your return, it’s time to get your taste buds going as you join the local cook who’ll teach you how to make a delicious Sri Lankan curry, revealing all her tasty secrets.

“There’s nowhere like Sri Lanka. Having travelled all over the country, it wasn’t long before I fell completely in love with its beaches, tea hills, wild rainforest and national parks. Oh, and did I mention the spicy curries? They knocked my socks off!”
