    Sri Lankan people are extremely friendly. They will strive to take care of you and to make you feel welcomed in their country.
    One of the best things about Sri Lanka is that you can just walk down the street and say hello to any random stranger passing by.

    Trains can be a good way to travel around the country, but routes are limited and it’s rather slow. There are a number of different classes, and you may even get your own seat!
    Normal buses in Colombo cost less than 30 LKR ($0.30) for a ride

    Colombo is Sri Lanka’s major city and entrance point, but from there it’s easy to get all around the country

    Hi James,
    Sri Lanka seems to be increasing in popularity as a holiday destination all the time. You're visiting during the west coast's dry season, which is perfect, but be aware that the east coast has a different climate. There are loads of things to see and do in Sri Lanka but one of the best, if you are an animal lover, is a visit to the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, where you can get close to the amazing animals that Sri Lanka is known for. I know you said you had done some research but here is a Sri Lanka Travel Overview which may give you some new ideas.
