Travelling the Sri Lankan Way

Created: August 18, 2018

The main mode of transportation in Sri Lanka is the bus. The connection network is well developed and you can reach your destination by bus from any large town. A bus ride is a real experience for foreigners. Long distances can be covered for a few cents, but the roads and the handle definitely need getting used to. But the bus ride offers the possibility to get in contact with locals and to learn a lot about their way of life and culture.
