In Sri Lanka, May is off season. Of course this is bad news for tour operators, as we have only few bookings, for example from Arabian families, as May or June are school holidays in Gulf countries. However, for travellers who are intersted to visit the southwestern beaches between Colombo and Galle and who free to choose the month of May, we recommend May, not only for our own advantage but also for our coustmers': The beaches are less crowded.
In contrast, those travellers interested in sightseeing in the Cultural Triangle should know that May (besides October) is the peak of precipitation in Anuradhapura and our hometown Mihintale and has most rainy days. Roughly, rainfall occurs every second day, but usually it's not raining the entire day.
Due to some small malaise, the next blog post informing about Sri Lanka destinations is delayed.
Today is a great day in Nuwan's family, double great... privately.
Public information service, descriptions of holiday destinations in Sri Lanka, will be continued tomorrow.

starting tomorrow, Monday 23 November, we will upload blog posts on a daily base. In the beginning, we will present you a series about Sri Lanka's holiday destinations. In contrast to our more detailed destination pages, the blog posts will provide basic information in a concise way. You will find quickly: 1. What can be seen at the specific location and 2. where is it and 3. when is the best time to visit it? Furthermore, we will use smaller photos in the blog posts. This helps to load the articles quickly, even if you don't use high-speed internet connections. Of course, the blog posts will be linked to our more comprehensive descriptions and larger photos on the corresponding destination pages, allowing you to scroll the blog for getting some first ideas and to browse to your selected places of interest.
Please don't hesitate to write your own comments to the blog posts. We are interested in corrections and additional information and your own experiences and advice for other travellers and in further suggestions what should be included in the list of destinationations.
