Hey all,
I am travelling to india in april 2007 and have worked out that it will only cost a fraction more to go to thailand via sri lanka than it will direct from bangalore, so iw as just wondering what stuff there is to see in sri lanka, and is it a worthwhile stop off? What kind of budget would i need and how long would you suggest i spend there?

Thanks in advance,
Stumpy:)
