  • My heart goes out to the victims and the families of the victims of this morning's bombings in Sri Lanka. I'm so sorry to see this news :(

    • I live in Sri Lanka, our country is more than 2,500 years old and the country's beauty is enhanced by nature and the sea around us. Sri Lanka is the only country that can achieve the cold and warm weather in less than three hours and the beauty of the country is unbelievable. So I invite you all to join my channel to see the beauty of our country. thank all !

    • @Pedro Martins see some more hidden beautyful places in sri

    • Sri lanka is safer than ever now. Thanks for this vedio. This is my beutiful country .

    • @Harry Taylor Not there are some, but most of us came from north and east of SL know the real face of sinhala terrorism than you. I was born and lived more than two decades in the north of SL. Currently I'm living in one of the foregin country you mentioned above where I study my master in CS, not as an asylum seeker. You would never understand us if you weren't in our shoes. I have doubt you might be a sinhalese.

    • @Guru Sandirasegaram It's beautiful island everyone in the world talks about it's natural beauty and variety of things to offer for all kind of tourists and adventure seekers.. While there are some Tamils (may be born in SL) talk shit about the country like the comment above .. I'd like to suggest and would appreciate if you could remove the reply above please.. Wish their asylum applications got rejected when they went to either UK or Canada or the boat sunk on their way to Australia.

  • Wow it’s so beautiful! We’ll be there in February! Can’t wait to experience this ourselves!! Nice drone shots! That waterfall is awesome!

  • Stop the camera and enjoy this moment

  • Was this a contiki? I googled it and this came up but I am unsure.

  • As a Sri Lankan, I am astounded by the sheer eloquence with which you have truly captured my country. I had travelled to almost all corners across the breadth and width of my motherland but hey, watching this, Guy you can summarise, I am amazed.

  • dunno how I stumbled upon this video but lemme just say it wtf this guy is handsome

  • You’ve made such a beautiful vlog about Sri Lanka. I was just there and you’ve really captured everything amazing about it. I totally agree with how you started the video. The Sri Lankan’s are the BEST!! I looove them! ♥️ And yasss the food!!!!

  • Which waterfall did you visit about 5min 48 sec into the video???

  • I visit srilanka 2x already i enjoy the train and some tourist areas and people are friendly always smile

  • “Why are there dogs up hear? And how did they get up here?” 🤣🤣

    • Shakya Weeraratne Oh wow. I find that quite assuring. I’ll be to Sri Lanka in less than two weeks for the first time and have included in my plans. So it’s nice to know that I will have some mates accompanying me. lol.

    • Jalin Bruhil there's always one or two dogs on every hike. The hikers usually share food with dogs so they usually hike up and down the hills with the travellers. They are super polite and never trouble you. The best part is since they travel with hikers they know all the good routes. So whenever we get lost we just follow a dog and get where we want to go.

  • What would be best Vegetarian options available in lanka, plz consult me sir?

  • Amazing video clip

  • U r doing much good to SL tourism in 13 mts so successfully that many don't in several vlogs. U covered 50-60% all main attractions, from Sigiriya to Merissa path in this fast fluid 10+ mts vlog incldng few foodies v.nice.

  • I have sri Lanka you have made a good video greeting me🙏

  • Likewise the beautiful side there are also few things that you should be cautious about Sri Lanka. Election is on it way, therefore there gonna be campaigns and crowds that would lead to worst traffic congestion as well as conflicts are not unusual during these times. Be extra vigilant when hiring with tuk tuk drivers, always prefer Uber & metered tuk tuks,do not give anything extra exceeding the meter rate unless a tip or for complement.Be conscious scammers pretending to rent properties, always book from trusted booking apps, avoid purchasing fake jewellery & gemstones there are imitation jewellery and gemstones pretended to be gold been sold by some beach shop around the country for huge rates. Always seek advice from trusted & travel only with licenced guides approved by SriLanka Tourist Board. Not all Street beggars are real, there are drug addicts, scammers & drunkards who would pretend to be one.So do not give any money or provide any provisions to them just try ignore them. Be careful of dangerous sea shores, not everywhere is safe there are dangerous beaches that can take you so be aware, always lookh for warning signs if not ask the locals around, do always stay visible around others and dont isolate yourself. Cross the road very carefully, mostly drivers usually don't follow strict rules, therefore be cautious even at controlled crossing. If you plan to rent a car & drive I wouldn't recommend that instead hire a car or passenger vehicle with an experienced driver. If you want to experience hot weather and to turn into a tan skin visit at the beginning of April, but I wouldn't recommend if you're planning a trip to North during these months end of March to End of May as you may get afflicted to powerful heatwaves in the North, during such periods temp. goes upto 50°C instead Visit UpCountry region as it would give you a comfortable climate during such season. Ideal time to visit North is between November to January as the climate usually become better yet you may find it hot but that's going to be bearable. For those who visited already I would like to thank you all and for those who are already in your trip and have planned your trip to visit here I wish you all to have a precious & wonderful time, do not hesitate to contact me for free advice & services.Always happy to help.
