The best thing about Sri Lanka is the locals. The people are so forthcoming, honest, friendly, and unique. Always eager to tell you about their life, introduce you to their entire family, and get to know you on a personal level. Sri Lankans are incredibly happy and their smiles light up the room. In my many trips to the island, I was blessed to enjoy family lunches with my private driver who was so proud to introduce me and my family to his family, had inside jokes with hotel staff, and met the most wonderful people throughout my island adventures.
