Hi guys,
I'm new here and if you see my profile you'll know that I'm from Sri Lanka.
I love travelling and was just wondering What do foreigners think of my country Sri Lanka? Have you been to Sri Lanka before or hoping to come to Lanka soon? What do you think are the great places and destinations here and what did you like the most about this country? If you had the chance of visiting Sri Lanka again would you do it?

Just wondering how our country looks from a foreigners perspective

Personally, I've been wanting to visit the places mentioned in the epic of Ramayana. I'm intrigued by the bridge of stones that was allegedly built by the vaanar sena. Apart from that, Nuwara Eliya, Madu river and I want to go on the Galle drive. I have heard so much about it. :)

I visited Sri Lanka in 2014 and this was a few years after the civil war had ended. There were elections soon to happen in early 2015 and the Pope was visiting in January.Things seemed quite well back then considering the death and destruction wrought by the civil war.

Now there have been travel alerts regarding incidents in Kandy, but I have friends who just recently visited and they didn't encounter that many issues. So definitely I would like to visit again one day, but it's not yet in my priority list.
