Where Do All Of The Unwell Sri Lankan Street Dogs Go? By Phillip Krynski The pale-blue iron gates fling open and my gaze pans across a sea of puppy dog eyes.

Peacocks are grazing the clouds as they perch before our yoga shala. And we keep finding the chipmunks swimming in the coconut water. Maybe you’d like to see the performance for yourself? Treat yourself to a recharging getaway on an untouched beach paradise: read on…

What to do on Christmas Day in Sri Lanka BY WINNIE STUBBS, MARKETING INTERN For many of us, the Christmas season means mugs of mulled wine by roaring fires and short, dark days sheltering from bleak, hostile weather. In Southern Sri Lanka, the season takes on a whole different look: think long, hazy days spent dozing under the palm trees, sunset cocktails and another excuse for beach parties ’till dawn.

Monkey Magic

March 17, 2014 | Sri Lanka
